Webserver on Beaglebone Black Ted Sluis dump1090-mutability - no data on map


#1

Greetings all!

Having trouble getting the lighttpd webserver working on Beaglbone Black with Ted Sluis dump1090-mutability. Found here https://github.com/tedsluis/dump1090

Fresh SD card with Jessie downloaded from https://beagleboard.org/latest-images
OS installed and updated.

RTL-SDR installed and confirmed working.

Lighttpd installed.

Built in services that use port 8080 all stopped.

Lighttpd enabled, force-reload, confirmed running.

Dump1090 started, confirmed running, receive packets confirmed.

./dump1090 --net --write-json /run/dump1090-mutability --write-json-every 1

Page is successfully served at ip_address/dump1090/gmap.html.

Page can be modified with the config.js file. Title, marker, default center, zoom level.

Problem - Flight data never appears.

Fresh SD card with Stretch downloaded from same address as above.
OS installed and updated. Some additional fun with chromium.

RTL-SDR installed and confirmed working.

Lighttpd installed.

Built in services that use port 8080 all stopped. Some slight command differences required from Jessie.

Lighttpd enabled, force-reload, confirmed running.

Dump1090 started, confirmed running, receive packets confirmed.

./dump1090 --net --write-json /run/dump1090-mutability --write-json-every 1

Page is successfully served at ip_address/dump1090/gmap.html.

Page can be modified with the config.js file. Title, marker, default center, zoom level.

Problem - Flight data never appears here either.

What am I missing?

Your Problem resembles to these ones, worth having a look:

  1. When is STRETCH coming to PiAware SD card image version

  2. https://forum.flightradar24.com/threads/11137-How-to-Feed-Data-to-Multiple-Sites-A-Brief-Guide?p=92709&viewfull=1#post92709

Thanks for the reply.

RTL-SDR rules were present. Adding the rules was part of the installation process on the Beaglebone Black.

The fixes in the second link appear to be Raspberry Pi specific. The appear to be for situations with multiple feeds. I’m not seeing the data show up on my map, at all. If the data isn’t getting to where it needs to be, then multiple feed solutions probably won’t solve the underlying problem.

The radio is working. The data is being generated and processed. The webserver is working. The data is not yet getting the map.

What is the output of following commands?

  1. sudo systemctl status lighttpd -l

  2. sudo systemctl status dump1090-mutability -l
