Message 58597 - Posted: 12 Aug 2018, 8:54:27 UTC
Last modified: 12 Aug 2018, 8:56:26 UTC

I've just noticed this message that has appeared today:

climateprediction.net: Notice from BOINC
This project is using an old URL. When convenient, remove the project, then add https://climateprediction.net/
12/08/2018 19:59:08

I currently have 12 tasks running and 12 waiting including some of the long pnw ones.

I've opted for no new tasks and suspended the waiting tasks. In 3-4 days all the current task will be completed. Any issues to watch for in removing and then reattaching the project? I'll update BOINC at the same time.

Shouldn't be any issues about this now. (There could have been during the time that everything was running on a backup server. Interestingly, the autoattach wizard on BOINC sill comes up with the http url rather than the https one.

With that sorted out, my guess is that Andy might take a well earned rest once he has finished sorting out the credits!

Now done this with some issues.

1. Updated BOINC to latest version. (installed as a service as normal)
2. Removed current CPDN project from BOINC Manager using the BOINC Remove button.
3. Added https CPDN project as requested. Agreed with Dave's observations as in the quote below. Someone needs to get the address corrected ASAP.
Shouldn't be any issues about this now. ...... Interestingly, the autoattach wizard on BOINC sill comes up with the http url rather than the https one.

4. When restarting, I notice that there were no tasks available in BOINC Manager. A quick look at my task listing on the web showed that all the tasks I had put in suspension were listed as abandoned. A look at the project data directory showed no tasks. I suspect that when I removed the Project from BOINC Manager, it emptied the project data on my PC.
5. Eventually a few new tasks started to trickle through.


I note that the latest BOINC Manager no longer has links to the Forum or User data. It just has a link to the CPDN Home page.

Running native Linux at the moment and that certainly has the links. Pretty sure the windows client I have to run under WINE does too.

All links are there on my Windows BOINC 7.12.1 Client. Running Windows 10, 64-bit, latest production version 17134.228

All the links now seem to have loaded on my Boinc Manager as well. Perhaps some of the info hadn't been fully downloaded. Who knows. The PC hasn't been restarted or anything. Sheez!

The message:
climateprediction.net: Notice from BOINC
This project is using an old URL. When convenient, remove the project, then add https://climateprediction.net/

is still around.

I had detached and re-attached (MANUALLY since the LATEST BOINC still has it as http) using https://climateprediction.net/

Received 1 task each for the 2 PC's re-attached and are crunching away OK.
* BOINC 7.14.2 x64 / Win 7 PRO/x-64 & Win 8.1/x-64. *

I know the message is "cosmetic" in nature. Decided to let the project know it still is around in case they forgot about the error message.

Hi all....I'm still getting this notice error message as well on multiple machines. Is the error message valid? Do I really need to do something, or is the problem an installation/data problem with BOINC?

The "old URL" message should go away after reattaching to the project.

I set the CPDN project on my machines that get that message to "no new tasks", then finish the existing models, then remove the project (to clear out any detritus from crashed models) and finally reattach using the HTTPS address rather than the HTTP address (which I think was the one offered by BOINC Manager - I probably upgraded BOINC Manager as well). The message should then go away: at least, it did on my machines.

OK, I'll let Andy know. But he may be away for a while yet.

************************************

But the VERY important part about this is: DON'T change the URL while you have tasks/models running/waiting to run, on that computer. Or you'll lose them!!!

A random thought:
Would those getting this message please look at the url for every page that they use, including all bookmarks. See if they all start with https.
And the page for each computer.

When I check properties for CPDN in BOINC, all computers which are getting this notice are using http not https. I've removed CPDN from one computer and added the project back, and CPDN installs correctly using https...and I no longer get the notice/error message.

That was the reason for my post...I was really asking if the error message is correct and if we really do need to reinstall the project using the https link. I assume this is required and the notice/error message is valid.

I use https for all CPDN web pages in web browsers with NO ERROR MESSAGE and as previously noted in this thread project was detached / exited BOINC / re-attached using HTTPS on my 2 PC's.

MAIN web page requested as https://climateprediction.net loads to that page.
Forum, server stats and account pages go to https://www.cpdn.org/cpdnboinc/ .

That is strange. Once it's changed, you shouldn't get the message.
I'm out of ideas about this.

But the message will remain on the server somewhere for all of those who haven't changed over.
