Scidbconnect() Error


#1

Hello, I’ve loaded the scidb library into R:

library(scidb)

and when i try to connect with a SciDB instance:

scidbconnect()

i get the following error:
scidbconnect()
Error in function (type, msg, asError = TRUE) :
Failed connect to localhost:8080; Connection refused

Any suggestions on why this is happening?
Thanks,
Anusha

Do you have shim installed?
(section 12.3 in the vignettes)

Yes, the R package needs a separate HTTP service to talk to SciDB called shim. Here is its web page:
