Z_getnewaddress error: couldn't connect to server

Tried creating a new address, keep getting this error for connecting to a server.

Bump == Would really like to create an address here..

were you able to get the server started?

Yes, it started fine

Happening here too, please help

What are the contents of your zcash.conf file? Also, if you run zcashd without the -deamon you might get a little more info on have the server is running.

Figured it out. Apparently the server needs to be running and THEN you can run the commands. You cannot run those commands without a server process running in the background
