How to change connection server/node in eSteem?

in esteem •  2 years ago  (edited)

If you are using older version of eSteem, you are likely connecting to server by default and app is not able to fetch posts because server is announced and discontinued/upgraded to So please update you connection node to one of public end-points/servers.

Go to Settings page and change Server field to one of the servers listed below and save changes (sometimes restart of app might be required). It should start working again...

Some of them might be down for maintenance mode as well depending on providers, for example is down for few hours due to maintenance, but there are others you can try to connect to...


Steem on!

Thanks for you @good-karma because this information is very good and I will follow in the ways that have been informed

Thanks for this update, seems its working for some with Android but on the ios app it only has two options for the server wss:// or wss:// and neither seem to be working,

I have tried typing in all the others and none of them seem to connect and are not saved into the list

Sorry if it comes across as whinging just trying to give info so this can be resolved i am missing it so badly LOL

I use IOS app and I've tried to get mine updated properly but have had no success. I tried last night and also tried this morning again (with several of the suggested updated server list) but had no luck with any of them.

Hopefully there will be a solution for us soon.

Well it worked fir a while yesterday but this morning seems to be not working again at least on iOS

I had the same problem and was able to solve it by doing the workaround i posted here. Hopefully i could have helped you ;) Let me know if the problem still exists :)


trying your server settign didnt work but it did do somehtign as the app switched back to the other steemd server and is working now, thanks so much :)
Thanks I tried that and it didnt work for me, and I tried 3 times and tripled checked that it was typed correctly maybe its geographic or something,. it did work for a while last evening but not now

but thanks for trying it is appreciated

Mine has been working but it’s been intermittent. I have an iPhone 7. Esteem started working yesterday for me and has most of the time since.

Lots of stuff being updated this week.

Yes it’s been a crazy week on here
The app is working intermittently fir me also now it’s working

Glad it’s back working now
I’m trying to catch up again

I confirm as well what @cryptokeepr wrote. For IOS doesn't work 😞

Do you have a solution already?

No I have had no luck are you using IOS also
Maybe we have to wait for an update

awesome thank you. I had seen your previous post on the discontinuation, then noticed this morning the app was completely borked out.

Thanks. This solved my problems with esteem app. After changing the server connection it works again.

thank you @good-karma I have made changes to eSteem settings

Thanks a lot, this information really helps me in using esteem. A few days ago i often experience network error problem when will post something.

I needed this information. Thanks. I stopped posting on esteem because I had troubles posting. I will try to do that, so hopefully is gonna work.

Why can't the app be set up to automatically connect to the best performing server?
Also I think a lot of esteem users don't know about this and think the app is bad.

Thank you brother.

You're so incredibly intelligent! I don't know anything about programming and it seems that so many Steemians are so technically advanced. I almost feel a little out of place lol. But hopefully I can gain a following through my journey here on steemit :) Keep up the great work! Someone's gotta be brains around here ;)

I have changed the settings successfully. Now it works.

Thank you brother for your post, really very useful before my esteem application can not run smoothly, but with the posting of my esteem application can work again. Thank's @good-karma


thanks i will try it now


Very useful update @good-karma. I changed the server and now, it works and I didn't know that I also could turn on notifications for upvotes, comments and so on. The only issue I found is that when I go to see upvotes, comments, reblogs, mentions etc., it shows old upvotes and other things just are reloading and can't see them. Is it connected to the server? Thanks very much for the app anyway.

Thanks for sharing, its very helpful for me.

Very useful info. Thanks for ur sharing @good-karma.

Have a nice day. Regards.

Nice Post!
