BlinkStick appears offline in Dashboard, but online in My BlinkSticks?


#1

Not sure if there’s an issue with the web API service? Also, my phone (through HTTP Shortcuts, an Android app), won’t be able to sent a request unless I tell it to accept any certificate when querying https://blinkstick.com/d/{publicid}/{color}.json with the following error

Online failed: java.security.cert.CertPathValidatorException: Trust anchor for certification path not found.

Also, when set to accept any cert, I’ll get a status code 500 from time to time,

Also, friendly reminder that the security certificate for blinkstick.com is expiring in two days :wink:.

Thanks for letting me know! Will sort out the issue with the API in a bit. Our server died yesterday so we had to do a server move very quickly :slight_smile:

Thanks for looking into it :smiley:

Ok, certificate is sorted out now so you shouldn’t be getting those errors any more. It’s now valid for another 3 years :smile:

500 error code was due to me pushing updates to the server. You may get this occasionally as I tweak bits here and there.

I also sorted out a few issues with online/offline status detection. This has been changed to be more efficient on the server. The site is now fully dockerized, yay!

Planning a bunch of updates for the site so if you have any requests just let me know :wink:
