Unable to open configuration file with Python Agent


Hi guys,

  1. I’m using Python 3.7, Flask 1.0.2, and Newrelic Python Agent
  2. In my tests, I receive an error: Unable to open the configuration file
  3. But, the path of my newrelic.ini is correct.
  4. I don’t know the why I receive this error.

Any ideas?


@riverfount Could you try running newrelic-admin validate-config LOCATION_OF_NEWRELIC.INI? You can read more about this here:

Also, are you using a virtual environment? It’s important the agent is installed in the same environment as your application.
