Appium GUI doesn't show logs anymore

Hi there,

I have running Appium version 1.5.3 with GUI running on MacOS.

I suddenly run into the problem, that my GUI does not log messages anymore.
I haven’t changed anything in configuration. From my point of view it looks like a the pipe is broken maybe?

Has anyone an idea?

PS: If I run Appium by shell script, logs are be printed as before.


This can happen if you have an Appium server already running on the machine from the command line.

Before your next run with the GUI, open a terminal and type:

ps aux | grep appium

If you see an Appium server already running, kill it before you start the server from the GUI. If you don’t know how to do that, here is an article on managing processes from the command line:

Hi there,

there are no appium servers running in the background.

Any ideas how to solve this?


If that’s not it then no idea. Not enough information.

Maybe describe everything you did before this? Reinstall?
