Errno 98 Adress already in use

Hi,

Im setting up mopidy and snapcast with this tutorial as a guide Mopidy + Snapcast – Multi-Room Music-Setup - Hoerli.NET

I managed to get the snapcast server going by not mopidy.

when I start mopidy i get:

ERROR    2022-10-05 16:23:15,234 [87241:MainThread] mopidy.commands
  Frontend (HttpFrontend) initialization error: HTTP server startup failed: [Errno 98] Address already in use

  Frontend (MpdFrontend) initialization error: MPD server startup failed: [Errno 98] Address already in use

Mopidy status gets me the following:

the http part of the config looks like this:

[http]
enabled = true
hostname = 192.168.xxx.xxx 
port = 6680
zeroconf = Mopidy HTTP server on $hostname
allowed_origins =
csrf_protection = true
default_app = mopidy

and lastly these are the IPs i can find:

root@raspberrypi:/home/pi# netstat -tulpn | grep LISTEN
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:49149 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 746/upmpdcli
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:1705 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 734/snapserver
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:1704 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 734/snapserver

tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:49152 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 746/upmpdcli

Just to be clear, the host adress is supposed to be the IP of the raspberry pi im running right?
Because I tried several different IPs and ports but the error messages are still the same.

Any idea what this could be?

Cheers

Mopidy is running. You don’t need to try and start it again.

Yes, but i cant reach the mopidy server to reach the web-client.
Or do you mean something different?

https://docs.mopidy.com/en/latest/running/service/

Stop the service, modify the config file for the service and adjust the http hostname to 0.0.0.0. Mopidy-HTTP — Mopidy 3.3.0 documentation

Then start the Mopidy service again.

Hm, I just tried again with 0.0.0.0 and with 127.0.0.1 but in the status i still get

Oct 06 12:10:50 raspberrypi mopidy[144439]: INFO     [HttpFrontend-10] mopidy.http.actor HTTP server running at [::ffff:127.0.0.1]:6680

also I tried:
sudo mopidyctl config
and it prints out only half on the config. the last block it show is [iris] but the [http] block doesnt show up.
when I display the config with nano it shows the whole config.

have I messed up my config somehow? if the [http] is ignored somehow, it at least explains why the [::ffff:127.0.0.1]:6680 IP isnt changing.

I somehow made it work. I think for some reason the config file was locked. So i set new read permissions and now its working.
