Normally, you can open the Repetier-Server in your browser from localhost:3344 or ip-address:3344. If Repetier-Server does not start, check if it’s running:


Open you Task Manager (Right click on the task bar → Task Manager) and check, if Repetier-Server is running.

Repetier-Server in Windows Task Manager

Linux and Mac

Open SSH or Terminal and enter:

ps aux | grep RepetierServer

Here you should see something like this:

repetie+ 12667  3.4  3.4 256396 32516 ?        S<sl Sep02  47:16 /usr/local/Repetier-Server/bin/RepetierServer -c /usr/local/Repetier-Server/etc/RepetierServer.xml --daemon
pi       13370  0.0  0.0   4372   528 pts/0    S+   10:57   0:00 grep --color=auto RepetierServer

If you see the line with RepetierServer.xml, then the server is at least running.

If you cannot open Repetier-Server in your browser, this may be due to a faulty request in the work dispatcher that is read at startup. You can safely delete the workdispatcher.sql file, where the tasks are stored, as follows:


Login using SSH and run:

sudo service RepetierServer stop
sudo rm /var/lib/Repetier-Server/database/workdispatcher.sql
sudo service RepetierServer start


Open terminal and run:

# Stop server
sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.repetier-server.RepetierServer.plist

# Remove work dispatcher
sudo rm "/Library/Application Support/Repetier-Server/database/workdispatcher.sql"

# Start server
sudo launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.repetier-server.RepetierServer.plist


Stop Repetier-Server: Open Stop Server in Windows start menu

Delete the file C:\ProgramData\Repetier-Server\database\workdispatcher.sql

Start Repetier-Server: Open Start Server in Windows start menu
