[ERR] Request fails with 500 when starting jovo in watch mode


Hello Community,

i have some strange behaviour lately…
When i try to start my project with
jovo run -w everything looks normal until i make a launch-request on the Jovo-Debuger.
I will see the following error in my Console:
[nodemon] starting node index.js --webhook --jovo-webhook --color
Local server listening on port 3002.
This is your webhook url: https://webhook.jovo.cloud/

To open Jovo Debugger in your browser, enter .
Error: Request failed with status code 500

My system is ubuntu.
my Jovo dependencies are:
`  “dependencies”: {

    “jovo-db-filedb”: “^3.0.15”,

    “jovo-framework”: “^3.5.2”,

    “jovo-platform-alexa”: “^3.5.4”,

    “jovo-plugin-debugger”: “^3.0.15”


Does anyone have the same problem ?


Hey @Londane

jovo run expects port 3000, but in the logs it’s 3002.

You can add the port to the command line jovo run -w --port 3002


You are right, i changed the default port in the code. But obviously i have to call jovo run with the port information too… :man_facepalming:

Thank you for your Help!
( pls. do not ask how much time i wasted with this “error” … )
