@fbartels, you are correct. I read that and used the app to start the Web Clipper service, but I was under the impression that I was starting the Web Clipper on the Joplin server. Instead, it starts up a service on the client or workstation running the Joplin app. I don't think the wording is as "direct" or clear as it could be. Thanks.
@fbartels@girish yes, just checked. This is a time drift issue. I looked at the changelog for Joplin server and they mention that there is a new feature to check for timedrift when the server starts. I added MAX_TIME_DRIFT=100 and the server started without any issues. Thank you everyone for help. Please close this issue!
