Thank you.
That is indeed a build just before the update of the internal web server was commited.
I need some time to investigate what's going on - stay tuned...

I was able to reproduce this on W32.
I have reverted the offending commit, let's try the next nightly.

Excellent! I look forward to the next nightly for testing.

I suppose this means you have to re-define your previous goal. I want to wish you the best of luck in that endeavor.

Thanks again,
Ray

I'm looking forward to test the PHI on a new windows nightly build, but it appears just the Windows part of the build server can't be reached and the winNightlies are no longer building.

Phi works fine in Firefox on the same iMac running FG. Very cool, Torsten! On my iPad, though, it loads the basic Phi page in Safari, but without tabs. Well, one tab graphic with no label, everything below that is blank.

EDIT: Hmm. Now it works fine on iPad. Nevermind... :)

i've seen this a few times over here in my firefox on linux on the same workstation as fgfs is running... i generally just refresh and it seems to recover and come on up... i do access fgfs from another workstation at times when i'm showing someone else the map and the simulator view (wish that would update more often then once every 5 seconds) but i don't recall if this partial loading has been seen from there... if it has, i've just done the reload thing and it has worked...

speaking of using other workstations and having others being able to watch, how do we prevent them from changing anything via the interface?

This sometimes happens right after startup of flightgear when the server did not respond fast enough for the browser to load all dependencies.
The reason is, that the httpd is still linked into the main loop. This will eventually change in the future.

There should be an input field "refresh every xxx seconds". Minimum value is 1 (one). What you get is an image from the screenshot server, so this introduces some load for fgfs. If you are on a fast multicore machine, it's probably not an issue.

Currently, there is no real good way to do so. I have a rough implementation of a read-only server granting write-access only to authenticated sessions. But to implement security seriously, at least SSL and some username/password based authentication should be working. I hope to have this in a usable state during the next release cycle (3.7).

PHI's Back.

Working as good as it did.

Still don't get properties listing, but I'm happy with the map and metar to be honest. :)
Thanks for your attention Torsten!

i kinda thought it might be something like that... something where the sim was in the middle of doing something when the request came in and it just never got back to the request...

i'll check this again... the last times i've tried setting this to one, it always reverted to five...

can't wait! have been thinking about some ways of doing this but not sure how well they'd work... one being to add command line options for controller user name and password... using ssl for the connection required... anyone without the name and password is a read-only no matter if they are ssl or not... less chance of interception over ssl and the only way then would be if they were stored on the sim machine somewhere but that would be a sim operator problem (eg: stored in fgfsrc or startup script file)...

BTW: i've got some other things related to phi (flight history and route path when crossing international date line, still getting direct line from origin to current location at certain times [washed up on beach in pontoon craft, sim paused, a few others]) for you but i guess i should get them into the tracker instead of trying to relate them here...

Looks like your httpd is not running at all.
Please double-check: do you have --httpd=8080 on your command line?
Check: /sim/http/running must be 'true'
Confirm by looking at your fgfs.log: anything like "starting mongoose..." in there?

misconfiguration seems to be a recurring issue, you could add a fgSetBool("/sim/httpd",isRunning) flag and display this in the help/about dialog for easier troubleshooting.
Please don't send support requests by PM, instead post your questions on the forum so that all users can contribute and benefit
Thanks & all the best,

let's also remember that any port, other than one already in use, can be used... i picked up 5500 for the sim's html server port from FGRun and that's what i've been using... i may have typoed it as 5050 but it is and has been 5500 since i first ran fgfs 3.4 from the ppa...
