EmonPi (RPI3B+) not connecting to wifi

No error messages. Here are the contents (minus wifi ssid name and pw, which both were correct):

[email protected]:~/data $ cat /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev


I’m sorry but I am at a loss.

What output do you get from ifconfig and iwconfig commands?

Also what permissions are the wpa_supplicant file?

ls -la /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

Ok, so this is embarrassing. My password manager (I blame a piece of software, obviously) made a practical joke, providing the wrong wifi password :persevere: :roll_eyes:

Wifi is now working just fine.

Thanks for all your help and suggestions, it definitely made me a bit more knowledgeable, if nothing else!

Now I’m off to start a new thread about “why does the emoncms db on my emonpi not import historical data from my iotawatt, while my other RPI with my own emoncms db setup does?”
