        Also i have confirmed that ethernet cable is in working condition as well as power cable and data cable. I only have sungle wifi network so there shouldn't be any network discrepencies. Please if you can help out with the next steps.

          Hi @sunny143, sorry you're running into this database file error.

          And thanks for sharing all those details!

          Unfortunately, it sounds like your TinyPilot's filesystem could be corrupt - especially since the file cannot be found and your network can't discover your TinyPilot. I suspect your TinyPilot can't boot properly due to the corruption.

          In this case, I would recommend that you re-flash your TinyPilot's microSD card to restore your TinyPilot to a working state.

          Once you're back up and running, I'd recommend that you enable TinyPilot's read-only filesystem to help reduce the chances of encountering similar issues in the future.

          I hope that helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions.
