Replit project will not stop

Problem description:
I was editing my .replit’s “run” command, and I made a mistake in the code. When I ran the code, it game me an error message, so I went and fixed the error. When I tried to stop the project, it simply would not stop. The only way to stop is to run it using the ?v=1 addition to the url of the repl and stopping it that way (from what I tried).

Expected behavior:
The replit should have stopped when I pressed “stop”.

Actual behavior:
The replit would imply say “stopping…” but never stop.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Start a blank repl
  2. Create a file called
  3. Go to the file .replit and write: run = “bash”
  4. It will return an error, and stopping will not work.

I have fixed this bug, and using public share will not replicate it because of how it works.
You can try using the process above.

They’ve officially made the Ask Forum as the place to report bugs, I don’t think the old ticket system is active anymore, could be wrong.


O_O wow really that’s cool


Here is a more detailed view of how this works:

Inside .replit:

run = [“bash”] #Normally it would be [“bash”,“”], so this is the code that starts the bug.
channel = “stable-22_11”

Terminal Output:

unable to find executable exec: “bash”: executable file not found in $PATH

If having run = ["bash"] causes the error, then why not just use run=["bash", ""]. I don’t know, but I’m guessing it’s because of the way run is used, I think the idea is that each element in the list is an argument/command, so having a command (bash) and an argument ( in the same element confuses Replit.

Yes, this is how I fixed it, but I was curious why this would affect how it ran
