Question about pb.proto

1. Caddy version (caddy version):

v2.1.0 h1:MC4d65RCVaEKy1iOFjsD51mybOwS8qdEVBi7ESDhUfE=

2. How I run Caddy:

system service

a. System environment:

raspberry pi 4 (buster)
direct install

b. Command:

start or run

c. Service/unit/compose file:


d. My complete Caddyfile or JSON config:

The Caddyfile doesn’t matter as I tried different ones and it doesn’t stop the WARNING {
        root * /srv/dev-disk-by-label-HomeDrive/config files/users
        file_server browse

3. The problem I’m having:

I get the following every time I enter anything into the terminal with caddy

2020/06/27 08:43:08 WARNING: proto: file "pb.proto" is already registered
A future release will panic on registration conflicts. See:

This started after my upgrade to 2.1. The method of upgrading was using apt.

4. Error messages and/or full log output:

5. What I already tried:

I went to the link and read about it. It’s far above my head to understand though. I also found this issue already brought up on the GitHub

Is this going to be an issue for my system? So far Caddy seems to be working just like it was for the guy who posted in GitHub. @Mohammed90 said it could be fixed by downgrading but I haven’t the slightest on how to do that.

Should I just leave it alone and wait for a fix? Any help would be great. Thank you.

6. Links to relevant resources:

You don’t have to worry about that. It won’t cause you any issues on your system, and Caddy will run fine anyways. The downgrading isn’t something for the end-user (you). It’s something for us to handle in the versions of the libraries used in Caddy.
