Starting with Unit 4 / Module 11 I started to get compilation errors : “Multiple libraries were found for …”. For both WiFi.h and ESPAsyncWebServer.h. I see I have created libraries under the application “user\AppData\Local\~” as well as a local folder for my projects.
What is best practice to avoid such errors? It is not clear how to merge some, e.g, where to put the libraries from Module 11 in the main Arduino libraries folder?
Hello, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s not compiling. Can you post the full error message that is being printed in the Arduino IDE? If you have multiple libraries, you might need to follow the path that is printed in the serial monitor to delete the duplicate libraries.
Arduino: 1.8.9 (Windows 10), Board: “DOIT ESP32 DEVKIT V1, 80MHz, 115200, None”
Multiple libraries were found for “WiFi.h”

Error compiling for board DOIT ESP32 DEVKIT V1.
This report would have more information with
“Show verbose output during compilation”
option enabled in File -> Preferences.
However, I reinstalled Arduino and that eliminated the issue, although I’m uncertain what happened. Now I cannot obtain my IP though it worked with previous builds where a server address was requested (I just confirmed with the relay web server lesson). It continues to state “Connecting to WiFi..”.
(Also, I noticed the code shows #include “DHT.h” yet the instructions state to name it “DHT_sensor”. )
(Also, note here the first link to download the AsyncTCP library goes to github where I downloaded it, but the second reference to it auto downloads the ESPAsyncWebServer library.

(Also, how do you insert an image here? I tried various formats with the image tool without luck.)
Do you have an installation of Arduino in your computer or are you using a portable installation?
Ok, if you’re using the Arduino IDE actually installed in your computer (no the portable version), you just have the libraries installed at My Computer > User > your_user > Arduino > libraries. Before installing any library, double-check that the library is not already there with a slightly different folder name, for example…
