Rclone 1.56 daemon mode doesn't work / macOS

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

rclone --daemon does not work anymore. I saw this post https://forum.rclone.org/t/osx-daemon-mode/5535 it is mentioned in the thread the fix will be released in 1.56.1 but I have not seen that released (only seen 1.56)

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)


Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

macOS Catalina

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)


The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone mount --daemon onedrive-canadaram-rclone: ~/mount/onedrive/canadaram

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

I'm sorry but I don't known where the config file is stored

A log from the command with the -vv flag

It's a known issue with multiple posts on the forum here.

You can use the latest beta or downgrade until a point release comes out.
