My deluge-console is suddenly giving me this error

Failed to connect to 127.0.0.1:58846 with reason: Connection refused 

why is this error.I have done nothing and the GUI deluge runs fine.Its the problem in console only? Why localhost is refusing connection and how do I connect to daemon? I have tried the command

connect 127.0.0.1 58846

but it doesnt seems to work.

The most common reason is because you are running deluged as a different user to the one you are running deluge-console with.

From the Deluge wiki:

If you are running deluged under another user you will need to temporarily login as that user to enable deluge-console to access that daemon's config:

su --shell /bin/bash --login deluge
