My HTTP string has stopped working. Here is what it is reading in the Live Data tab:

HTTP Upload: 2018-09-09 09:11:22 Error: http://216.51.232.61/conds.php?d=09/09/ ... m,--,12:44,--,--,--: 2018-09-09 09:11:22 ERROR 404: Not Found. (no more tries)

Any idea what has happened? :roll:

Okay, I believe I know what the issue is. I have recently secured my website and the HTTP is not connecting to https. I have switched my DNS back to the non secure servers.

Is there any way I can make my meteobridge work through https?

the tiny HTTP server in the Meteobridge does not support HTTPS and given the limitations of the hardware (mainly storage space) I don't think this can be achieved on all platforms. When more requests on it come in, I will do some more observation. In general I try to avoid to have the various regular Meteobridge platforms to differ in function as this adds more to the hell of maintaining all these branches.

I'm running into a similar issue since Monday. What's different in my case is that my website configuration hasn't changed since June. And has been working flawlessly up until last Monday. There was a power outage that cuased by Meteobridge to restart. Which probably triggered its first update in a few months. It would be nice to have this fixed.

Not sure whether this is related, but since a couple of days my NANO can no longert post weather data to wetter.com, please see attached screenshot.

-->Meteobridge 3.7 (Sep 28 2018, build 1156), FW 1.0

There seems to be an issue at the wetter.com uploads. I had reports from other users as well. However, should be nothing special related to the NANO.

Thanks for your reply, looks like you are right. I sniffed the network traffic with the wetter.com upload server and it seems that it disconnects the session immediately after getting the http get request from the NANO. I sent them a mail, but no response yet.

Cheers, -pl

I am having the same issue as rmccullough - my configuration had been running until Monday. I am also running a website that utilizes HTTPS - which you've stated is not supported - although it must have been supported at one time. I appreciate the difficulty in supporting multiple releases and platforms and definitely appreciate the effort that's been put into the product. I would just like to appeal to you to prioritize supporting HTTPS with some supporting blogs: https://developers.google.com/web/funda ... /why-https. I think the device, in the future will be less usable if you don't support HTTPS. Just for fun - I also found a page here on the topic: https://stormpath.com/blog/why-http-is- ... than-https (it was written as an April fools joke...) Thanks for all your efforts.

HTTPS uploads are supported. Just the Meteobridge internal web server that presents you the admin interface does not support HTTPS.

My apologies - I misunderstood your previous post. So let me restate my issue - uploads to my Home Weather Station are now failing when I'm pointing to the https version of my site. I get the error message "Unable to establish SSL connection". It was working and then stopped after the update last Monday.

What is the URL you are using for upload? Does it start with "https" or "http"?

When you state "http://" and your web site automatically forwards to "https://" this issue will occur. When you say "https://" from the beginning it will work fine.

That was not the case in June when I originally set up my new website. Because that is exactly how I had it set up. So something definitely changed in the Meteobridge software between when I originally set up my website(June) and and when the Meteobridge restarted and updated on Sep 23/24.

Disabling the http to https redirection on my domain and removing changing https to http in Meteobridge did "fix" it for the time being.
