Message 40632 - Posted: 24 Jun 2010, 13:42:57 UTC

I have detached and attempted to reattach on one of my crunchers.

The Boinc part works OK, and then I get the following msg:
Fetching configuration file from http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/get_project_config.php
and then nothing: The project shows in projects but no account name, Team, or stats.

The MW folder is empty so nothing is downloading. I know of one other user with the same issue.
BOINC 6.10.57, on Win Vista 64.

Nope, nothing to do with that, this is a server problem... when SETI woke up I got attached without no problems... MW is the only one not responding :(

I was hoping the server was going slow, but here we are this morning:

25/06/2010 10:41:34 a.m. Milkyway@home update requested by user
25/06/2010 10:41:35 a.m. Milkyway@home Fetching scheduler list


And . . . .
. . . . . .. . . . .
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . nothing.

My other crunchers continue to operate normally, Boinc Manager is doing its part of the attach process, and, numerous people are having the same problem, so it seems to be a config problem at the MW server end.

Until the frontpage is restored to what it was before that design fiasco took place, you won't be able to attach again....

The frontpage/master url (index.php) is what the boinc client parses to get the scheduler url...


Here's a sample of a proper index.php

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"><html>
<head>
<title>Collatz Conjecture</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="white.css">
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="Collatz Conjecture RSS 2.0" href="http://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/rss_main.php">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="main.css" />
<link rel="icon" href="img/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
<!-- <scheduler>http://debian.thesonntags.com/collatz_cgi/cgi</scheduler> -->
<link rel="boinc_scheduler" href="http://debian.thesonntags.com/collatz_cgi/cgi">



here's a possible fix that might work(untested).

Shutdown boinc completely and open the file "master_milkyway.cs.rpi.edu_milkyway.xml" (boinc data directory) copy and paste


<!-- <scheduler>http://milkyway.rpi.edu/cgi/cgi</scheduler>-->
<link rel="boinc_scheduler" href="http://milkyway.rpi.edu/cgi/cgi">


between <head><title>MilkyWay@home</title> ....... <link rel=stylesheet type=text/css href=white.css>


It should look like this:

<head><title>MilkyWay@home</title><!-- <scheduler>http://milkyway.rpi.edu/cgi/cgi</scheduler>-->
<link rel="boinc_scheduler" href="http://milkyway.rpi.edu/cgi/cgi"><link rel=stylesheet type=text/css href=white.css>


save the file and restart boinc.

Tried Crunch3r's idea and it didn't work for me.

Changed the XML code as directed, restart Boinc and when I tell it to contact the MW server it goes to fetch the scheduler list and then resets to 24 hour delay.

Looking back at the edited XML file it has gone back to what it was before I changed it.

Sorry that it didn't work. Now it's up to the one who screwed up the front page in the first place to fix that mess ;)

I tried updating the index.php file with the fix (on the server). Maybe that will help.

Thanks Travis and Crunch3r.

Everything OK now.

So lets hope I don't have a power outage in the next ten days while I am away skiing.
