    I'm using API to automate creating tasks.

    On my servers I usually have multiple instances of A-parser running on different ports (9091, 9092, 9093, etc)

    I've added the "allow_outside_files: 1" line to the config.txt files for each instance and for the most part I'm able to use query files outside the normal folders fine.

    But on a couple servers I till still get "Queries file must be in queries or results folder!" error despite having added the "allow_outside_files" line.

    Error will only happen on a single instance. All other instances work fine.

    Usually this happens on port 9091 but not always

    Any ideas?

    Hello.
    Specify, please, such questions:
    1) show all the contents of config.txt file
    2) in which folder is the parser (full path)?
    3) show full API request that is being called (including the full path of the file)
    4) version of A-Parser and OS

    The problem was the config.txt file was not UTF-8 encoded (probably changed it by accident when editing) Once I changed file encoding to UTF-8 everything works as it should.
