Chromedriver not working on python bot

I’ve migrated my bot from heroku to fly.io because of heroku removing free plan, but after i tested chromedriver to scrap one site it fails to do so:

discord.ext.commands.errors.CommandInvokeError: Command raised an exception: WebDriverException: Message: unknown error: session deleted because of page crash

My chromedriver options (I’m using undetected_chromedriver - optimized version of selenium webdriver):

opts = uc.ChromeOptions()
opts.add_argument("--no-sandbox")
opts.add_argument("--headless")
opts.add_argument("--disable-dev-shm-usage")
opts.add_argument("--enable-javascript")

driver = uc.Chrome(use_subprocess=True, options=opts)

My dockerfile:

Hey, did you get this to work? I’m having a similar issue.

I discovered that 256 MB ram is not enough for chromedriver, that’s why i moved my chromedriver bot to mogenius

@kexo pls how were you able to host your bot on mogenius as I’m facing some difficulty setting mine up.

I’ve had some issues with docker i posted above, so i simplified it and it works on mogenius, you can remove chromedriver installation if you don’t need it. If you can’t setup your bot you can ask on their discord server
