Headless ChromeDriver using Python Selenium error: Fails To Start— “DevTools request failed”

0 votes

Everytime I run the execution, i get this below error. ChromeDriver fails to  start. But the code works perfectly fine on local. What can possibly be the problem?

WebDriverException: Message: unknown error: Chrome failed to start: exited abnormally
  (Driver info: chromedriver=2.29.461571 (8a88bbe0775e2a23afda0ceaf2ef7ee74e822cc5),platform=Linux 4.4.0-116-generic x86_64)

This should be because your ChromeDriver is out of date for this version of chrome your using. You should be using v2.37 for Chrome65, but you're using chromedriver=2.29.461571 Try updating it.
You can get the latest version of ChromeDriver for your platform here: https://sites.google.com/a/chromium.org/chromedriver/downloads
