FlightAware Discussions

Flight aware says I haven't checked in in 2 days even though i see a bunch of planes on my localhost

If i run sudo piaware-status, this is what I get:

PiAware master process (piaware) is running with pid 593.
PiAware ADS-B client (faup1090) is running with pid 773.
PiAware mlat client (fa-mlat-client) is not running.
Local ADS-B receiver (dump1090-mutabi) is running with pid 550.

dump1090-mutabi (pid 550) is listening for connections on port 30005.
faup1090 is connected to the ADS-B receiver.
piaware is connected to FlightAware.

dump1090 is producing data on localhost:30005.

Your feeder ID is f6281abf-UUID... (from /var/cache/piaware/feeder_id)

If I run tail -20 /tmp/piaware.out, I get this

May  6 18:53:58 <HOSTNAME> piaware[593]: 170976 msgs recv'd from dump1090-mutabi (607 in last 5m); 170943 msgs sent to FlightAware

My only suspicion for it not working is when I go to my user page at https://flightaware.com/adsb/stats/user/herereadthis, it lists my unique identifier as 3f0b768e-UUID… which is different than my Feeder ID.

Help me please?

Solved on my own. I had 2 sites and it was showing the inactive site by default. The first inactive site was from a bad install of dump1090.

The solution is here in case anyone else sees the same problem: For Beginners - How-to Remove Unused Site from Your Account basically you wait until the bad site is inactive for a long enough time, then you have the option to delete it.
