Im creating my dapp with following below tutorial. http://www.dappuniversity.com/articles/the-ultimate-ethereum-dapp-tutorial

however Im facing an error when I run

truffle console

it shows

>truffle console

Could not connect to your Ethereum client with the following parameters:
    - host       >
    - port       > 7545
    - network_id > *

Please check that your Ethereum client:
    - is running
    - is accepting RPC connections (i.e., "--rpc" option is used in geth)
    - is accessible over the network
    - is properly configured in your Truffle configuration file (truffle-config.js)

Truffle v5.0.17 (core: 5.0.16)
Node v10.15.3

I have tried

truffle init

but my command prompt got stacked after it showed

>truffle init

This directory is non-empty...
? Proceed anyway? Yes
- Preparing to download

can anyone please advise me what needed to be changed.

FYI the code inside truffle-config.js is

module.exports = {
  networks: {
    development: {
      host: "",
      port: 7545,
      network_id: "*" // Match any network id

Thank you

  • Check your question please. The error implies that truffle-config.js should state port: 7545, but instead it is stating port: 7574. So I'm guessing that one of these two is not exactly what you say it is. – goodvibration May 15 '19 at 13:44
  • Sorry typo! still facing same issue after changed to port: 7545 – Trey May 15 '19 at 14:00
  • Well have you started an Ethereum node (e.g. Ganache) listening on – goodvibration May 15 '19 at 14:09
  • Thank you its working now. Shame on me. – Trey May 15 '19 at 14:16

Do truffle develop before doing truffle console
