Texis installation issue

Post by jaiswal.priyanka1 »

While installing texis we are getting "No Vortex version in reply" error as below :

It looks like the web server is canonicalizing the hostname. Try giving "nycvspclc1s005" (no quotes) as the hostname when installing instead of "NYCVSPCLC1S005".

Hi Mark,

We have tried the solution given by you where we have used "nycvspclc1s005" instead of "NYCVSPCLC1S005" but still it is giving same error.

run Vortex for that URL. Try again.

Can you please suggest what we should try next.

Also check the webserver's error log to see if there's anything related.

Webserver's reply is same as shown in previous post. Also we have checked monitor.log, access_log and error_log but haven't found anything related to our issue.
Could you please suggest any other solution for the issue.

So you're saying that the webserver is sending a Location header that exactly matches the requested URL? That's a bug in the webserver or it's configuration as that would be an infinite loop.

Actually, it looks like the webserver is validly redirecting from http to https; we missed that at first. But the fetch agent used by the install script does not support https, so it failed.

You can try to replace the fetch agent with wget, which does support https. First verify you have wget:

wget -q -O - http://www.google.com/

should print the HTML of google.com. If you have wget, then edit the install script (make a backup first). Edit each line that is like this:

if "$BinDir/geturl" -t35 "$TryUrl" >"$TmpFile" 2>"$TmpFile2"; then

to this:

if wget --save-headers -O "$TmpFile" -o "$TmpFile2" "$TryUrl"; then

(there should be 3 lines). Then re-run the (modified) install script.
