    Webserver File Location

    I was looking to add a simple html file in the webserver root for the fr24feed so that I can monitor the status on an uptime site. Can anyone tell me where the html files for the fr24feed (localhost:8754) server are stored? I can find the files for the dump1090 (localhost:8080).

    Thanks!

    It's probably written server side?

    He means the one included within the app to host the config pages

    From what I can tell Kris, its coded into the binary. Called on launch. So not a standalone port other than the logfiles in /var/log/fr24feed.log

    That's what I said/meant Oblivian - It's written on the fly server side - like server side asp etc.
    The thing is, what (as far as I can tell) is he wants to check things with a web page?
    well that's what localhost:8754 does!
    If he wants to check remote of the network, then he has to do other stuff to get his internet IP address of course...

    Nothing server side. (Which in this case would infer to most users as being on fr24s servers)

    A traditional web server Consists of a hosting portal, similar to tinyhttp or Apache. And web pages for the client to load. Like index.html. those are found in directories on the host As with dump1090s files in our own cases.

    But in the case of fr24feed, I suspect these are written to ram and hosted only when the application is running. Have to use the word server cautiously (if not mentioning local) when were referring to something that does contact a central server. Ala fr24s CDN

    I do know what a traditional server is & does, so please spare me the lecture ;-)
    I was just explaining why krisb wont find any html code, there is a way to suss out what is happening, but I think this may only confuse things at the moment!

    Not sure what the OP is looking for but if you haven't heard of VRS, that is a nice server app:

    Look at the plugins like "database writer"

    He wants to monitor that fr24feed is running, and restart it if it is not.

    The method he hoped to do this by, was checking the index.HTML the local webserver creates when running is still active. If not, restart.

    But it's not a separate service/application writing/reading files like httpd(aemon) to be able to do so.

    Thanks for the information about the "server". I was hoping it was more like the dump1090 web server/service, where I could add files. I will have to dig a little deeper into the fr24feed to see how that works someday, my curiosity has me wondering how they serve those at run time, there would have to be code somewhere that could be modified, unless it is compiled... Which may be the case.

    Thanks again!
