An error occurred while starting the application.

Hi, I clicked ‘restart application’ in grandnode admin area,

Then, When I tried to access the web, the browser showed me:

An error occurred while starting the application.
.NET Core 4.6.27817.03 X64 v4.0.0.0    |   Microsoft.AspNetCore.Hosting version 2.2.0-rtm-35687    |    Linux 4.15.0-76-generic #86-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jan 17 17:24:28 UTC 2020    |   Need help?

but /var/aspnetcore/GrandNode/logs/stdout does not show any error. any idea what’s going on and how to fix this bug?.

I don’t see any bug on appsettings.json too

Hi there @nurblissempire,

Are you sure this file should be a .json file? To me, it looks like this would be a .js, JavaScript, file.

JSON as a format doesn’t support commnets in the file (// This is a comment) or for keys that aren’t strings, such as the Minimal = 3, that you have.
