Hi, I am just getting started with understanding to use the internet computer. My background isn’t computer science. Hence, my question may have a simple answer that I overlooked.
I was able to successfully follow and implement on my end all the instructions to host a static website - Hosting a Static Website on the Internet Computer :: Internet Computer. Towards the end of the quick-start guide, it says that we deploy our website using
dfx deploy --network ic
However, it does not say how to stop this deployed canister? My deployed canister seems to be continuously using up the cycles in my default cycle wallet for a week now. I can see the cycle count reducing in my default cycle wallet. I tried running the following to stop the canister,
dfx canister stop --all
But, it gives the following error,
An error happened during communication with the replica: error sending request for url (http://127.0.0.1:8000/api/v2/status): error trying to connect: tcp connect error: Connection refused (os error 61)
Can you please help me understand and possibly help me stop the canister?
Thanks a lot for your help.
I am excited to learn more and develop on the IC.
