Cannot create new apps


#1

I’m a newbie and I’m getting errors while creating a new meteor app.

while downloading blaze
error: connect ECONNREFUSED 94.31.29.131:443

and many more similar to above.

I’m running meteor from a windows machine. any ideas how to fix this?


#2

Did you install as Admin and set your Global Variable AND reboot?

Welcome to Meteor, it’s a party!


#3

I did install as admin. I’m not sure what do you mean by setting a global variable. Should I create an environment variable?


#4

Yes there’s a part to create an environment variable if I recall. Been like 13 months since I installed…

But interestingly enough when you https://94.31.29.131:443 it’s a 404

Maybe the package installer is broken at the moment?

Actually their SSL looks expired


#5

So, how would proceed with the installation?


#6

Hrmm. Maybe look at adding a rule to your hosts file or something… Or look for stuff on google like “How to enable all ssl websites forever with no warning” - install Meteor, and remove that setting.

Alternatively, you might be able to clone a repo, which doesn’t actually download Blaze from that URL, it would be a git repo.
