SSH extension for VSCode

I was succesfully using SSH extension in VSCode to code in julia on a remote machine, but it broke down without any obvious reason. When I start start the VScode and connect to the server, everything loads as usual, but julia does not start and it says

“Could not start the Julia language server. Make sure the configuration setting julia.executablePath points to the Julia binary.”

The julia executable path is set on the local machine and it works. Is there a way to set it for the remote machine? Julia is installed there and runs from the command line with no problems.
Thanks for any advice.

Look for the command “Open Remote Settings” and you can set a julia.executablePath which applies only to that remote.

Thank you, it works now. Just out of curiosity, do you have any idea why it worked without setting it before and now it stopped?

No idea, maybe the local executablepath happened to also be correct for the remote machine previously, but then something there changed?

There was an update to the Julia extension a few weeks back which changed how the binary path is resolved, so maybe you hadn’t updated the extension on the remote in a while and only ran into the issue after the update?
