PI-star web service disconnects

Post by La1roa »

My Pi-star version 4.1.4 disconnects from the MMDVM and cannot be connect unless by a reboot. Stopping/starting the service does not help.
The PI3 and the MMDVM still transmits calls from internett.
Does the setup have a timeout setting for this or is it a fault in the software?
I use a RPi 3 with a STM32-DVM MMDVM ..modem.

It does not ever timeout and quit operating on purpose, I have my hotspot on 24/7.

It sounds to me that you have a hardware problem.

check the logs and see what it reports.
If someones previous actions are any indication of their future actions, then I predict the deletion and removal of access will happen at any moment. 7-11-2020.

I will check the logs..
But if there is a hardware problem, why does the pistar version 3... work fine without this disconnection...
And when the web service is disconnected, i can operate the hotspot without problem.

I am having difficulty understanding what you are explaining.

Earlier you said it "disconnects from the MMDVM" and I'm confused if you are meaning the dashboard or the actual MMDVM hat. Are you now saying the dashboard is not accessible, but the hotspot operates?

If thats the case then backup the configuration, reimage the SD card with the latest version of Pi-Star and restore your backup configuration settings.

Sorry, if i didnt express myself properly.
But yes, the pi is working and the mmdvm must also be working since i can listen to and talk to people .
At the same time nothing pops up at the web interface, the listening indicator is blank (white),
The web page can be operated , it is not "frozen". The log does not show anything. I can update the config page
With a restart of services.
I can also go into the ssh and do an update, but still no calls will be listed at the web page.
After a reboot everything is ok for a day or so, then the web page will be offline again.

Ok. something is wrong with the web server, so reimage the SD card.

Today i downloaded a fresh image from pi-star.uk for the PI3. I flashed it onto a 15gB micro SD . It verified ok... .
But then a new problem came up..
After reentering all my config data and the connection to Bandmaste and the radio was ok i tried to update the pi-star software.
The update goes into a loop , which i had to kill . But still the hotspot is alive..
here is the copy of the SSH output........................

Use the older image. Pi-Star_RPi_V4.1.4_08-Feb-2021.zip

I'm testing the latest image right now.

I confirmed the issue with the latest update, for now use the slightly older one.

4.1.5 has been release with this issue pre-fixed.

For anyone who is seeing the update loop, just opening any Admin page or the config page will auto-fix the loop issue and get you back in action.
