RStudio not starting


I get an error message saying my previous session has become unresponsive. I have even uninstalled RStudio and re-installed it but to no avail.

I’m quite new to it so I was wondering if it could be that the server might be down or something?



HI @siusun,

Are you using RStudio Server or RStudio from your desktop? You might want to move this question to the #rstudio-ide category, to make it easier to find for those who know more about this.

Here’s a good, quick, pictorial of how to do that from the meta-Discourse site:

You might also want to add some more information about your system (what OS you’re using, etc.)


Hi Mara,

Thanks for getting back to me. I have actually resolved the issue. There was an issue connecting to a work network but then I used wifi and it worked.
