Hi when executing the final project I get this error:
[ ERROR ] failed to create connection for pool [error: connection reset (error set): Connection refused (errno: 61), rdstk_conpool_id: C883BEBF-E4F4-4F57-9AF9-1922D103704A]

Any ideas what’s wrong? Is there any argument I need to be passing?


I am getting the following error when building and running the final project with a scheduled job and a local Redis instance:

[ ERROR ] SendNewsletterJob failed: Abort.404: Not Found

I get this error every minute, but it’s not a very helpful error message. If I build and run via docker, I get a slew of these errors:

serve_1  | [ ERROR ] failed to create connection for pool [error: connection reset (error set): Connection refused (errno: 111), rdstk_conpool_id: 3F1539E7-00BB-4923-819E-39A7A74B7F1C] (RediStack/ConnectionPool/ConnectionPool.swift:249)

I made a modification to the final project to extend the connectionRetryTimeout, but that doesn’t help. Eventually my terminal prints out this block every minute, according to my schedule:

serve_1  | [ DEBUG ] Scheduling SendNewsletterJob to run at 2021-07-21 23:36:05 +0000 (Queues/ScheduledJob.swift:37)

I can’t tell if this means it’s ultimately working, but it seems like not. Also I’d prefer there to be no errors of course, if that’s the case.

Can you help?
