Exporting to Cordova in construct 2 after enabling the LOCAL PREVIEW SERVER (ip address), run as admin preference, hard codes the IPv4 address somewhere in the export, which hard coded IPv4 address causes an IOS app to show the following error whenever your app is started on an IOS device.
[quote:uqvbpsrv]error starting local server: server is already up
Steps to Reproduce Bug
- Start any Construct 2 project, save it, and get it ready for export.
- Enable the LOCAL PREVIEW SERVER in Construct2 preferences with a local ip address.
- Export Cordova files, prepare and submit to itunes connect for development or production.
- attempt to open the app... error shows.
You can upload the same code to any other store (ie. chrome, android, amazon, html5,) and it works fine as shown below:
There was ZERO issues and this error didn't come up ever before enabling the LOCAL PREVIEW SERVER preference. No matter what we do now (turning off local server), this error persists for IOS submissions.
As experienced before enabling local preview server, it should work on IOS devices without errors.
