  • [BUG] FR24feed 1.0.24-7 - Config Save Changes issue

    It is becoming apparent that the latest version does not allow changes to be saved within the config web-page on some setups (Stretch upgraded, Buster - Pi24 appears un-effected at this time unless updated)

    To make changes to this version (until fixed) you will need to edit the config file manually

    sudo nano /etc/fr24feed.ini

    Thanks Oblivian for creating this thread.

    This is how I did it:
    (1) Opened file fr24feed.ini for editing
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/fr24feed.ini
    (2) After editing: Saved (Ctrl + o) and Closed file (Ctrl + x)

    (3) Finally restarted fr24feed
    Code:
    sudo systemctl restart fr24feed


    Contents of file fr24feed.ini
    (Replaced xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx by actual fr24 key)
    Using fr24feed-provided dump1090-mutability ver 1.14

    Pi24 image with receiver=dvbt
    Raspbian image with receiver=dvbt
    Using user-installed dump1090-mutability ver 1.15 or dump1090-fa

    Raspbian Image with receiver=beast-tcp
    receiver="dvbt"
    fr24key="xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
    bs="no"
    raw="no"
    logmode="1"

      Potentially another change in permissions. Or failure of the build in web portal

      Would need to compare the install script to see if there are any chmod/user adjustments from previous

        No, I dont think so. Tried both the following commands on 24feed ver 1.0.24-7, but no success

        Code:
        sudo mount -o remount,rw /
        
        sudo chmod 666 /etc/fr24feed.ini

        This is most likely cause.

        .

        Later Addition:
        I will try this command also when back home:
        Code:
        sudo chown fr24:fr24 /etc/fr24feed.ini

          -rw-rw-rw- 1 root root 198 Jul 8 2019 fr24feed.ini

          And so are all the directories and associated files installed. Seems the fr24 user that was once used may have been zapped and or had access revoked in favour of default system account?

          Install script:
          # Run the signup wizard
          if [ $AUTO_SIGNUP -eq 0 ]; then
          fr24feed --signup
          chmod a+rw /etc/fr24feed.ini

          Though that doesn't run when you apt-get update I wouldn't think

          And my install log doesn't reflect changes made yesterday

          Looking at processes, fr24feed is run as fr24..

          fr24 18925 3.2 1.2 170552 12072 ? Ssl Jan14 35:27 /usr/bin/fr24feed
