EmonService: get input list failing, code: 301

Hi all,

Please may you assist me.

I have been successfully posting to the emoncms.org server for a while, but I would like to change this to send to my own server. I have tried to setup the IotaWatt to send to my server, of which I have a number of other devices successfully sending data to, but without success.

Here is the message log from last restart:

I have tried http:// and https://.
I have tried removing the user ID.

Any help will be much appreciated.

301 is a permanent redirect. That usually happens when a service requires https (port 443) and doesn’t respond to http (port 80). I know you say you tried both, but IoTaWatt ignores https specification and sends Emoncms transactions to port 80.

Is this something that can typically be resolved on the server side?

I believe it can only be resolved on the server side.

Please excuse my ignorance, but could you help me formulate the question/inquiry that I should put to my hosting provider in an attempt to resolve?

I can’t be completely sure this is a redirect to port 443, but that’s my best guess. I’m not a server expert. You probably are using apache on Linux? If so, there are other forum users with expertise in that environment and specifically maintaining eMoncms there. Can someone step up here and help?
