Blank webif

Hi all

I decided to look at the webif a few weeks ago to schedule something but I was greeted with a blank white page although there is HTML source.

I was completely baffled as it had worked just a few weeks before, so I decided I'd upgrade to the latest cfw but I still have the same issue.

Anybody else had this or any ideas on how I can get it working?

Thanks

It's not the custom firmware (loaded by the USB) that is the issue, it's the WebIF itself (which is a package like any other) or the support services which serve it up.

You will need to access the Humax by Telnet, then choose CLI from the Telnet menu and use an "opkg force-reinstall" command - I can't remember all the details but somebody will post soon or you can find them in the Wiki.

Here's the source... I'll try telnet to it, currently on my phone so will take a look on my PC.

Thanks for the rapid replies as usual, love the help on this forum :)

Code:

<div class=toolbarouter style="top: -40px">
  <div id=status class=toolbar>
    <span id=status_txt>
      Status...
    </span>
  </div>
</div>

<script type=text/javascript>
$(document).ready(function() {
	$('#status_txt').load('/cgi-bin/status.jim',
		function(rt,tt,xml) {
			if (rt.length)
				$('#status').slideDown();
		});
});
</script>

Hmm just tried using telnet to reinstall but no luck. I tried the command 'opkg install we if' as a last resort because none others seem to work(user error most likely as I've never used telnet before).

Anyway so that returned some errors about failing to open some files. It also said webif was up to date.

I can't work out the commands so sorry for the noobyness

Code:
humax# opkg --force-reinstall install webif

Edit: sorry, missed out "install"

Getting similar error as I did before without the --

Code:
humax# opkg --force-reinstall webif
opkg: unknown sub-command webif

It's strange because webif is listed when I do 'opkg list-installed'

I didn't really do much customising so maybe I could just force remove the firmware through telnet and reinstall it all fresh?

Edit:

Just ran this 'opkg install --force-reinstall webif' and got some errors

humax# opkg install --force-reinstall webif

Try:
Code:
humax# diag general
humax# ls -l /mod/var/opkg
and post the results.
Or perhaps you need to restart into maintenance mode (using tmenu) and run fix-disk.

I've now rerun the force reinstall and it's downloading the webif(but seems to be taking some time, it's been like 5 minutes already), hopefully all will be good when it's done.

I'm also getting this when I go to it in my browser.

Did you run fix-disk again to confirm the disk was totally fixed? Run it until it gives no errors.
I would then be tempted to do "diag setrma" and reboot and see where that gets you.

I didn't re run it but will do that now as I've already done an rma then put latest official firmware on then fresh custom firmware and it won't even list any packages now and the web if is completely gone to a page not found.

I've got telnet on my phone now so running it again to confirm there's no disk errors.

Thanks again for your help, I'll report back in morning as I am UK based.

Edit: Went pretty quick with no errors so tried to list packages again and it said
Code:
* rm_r: Failed to open dir : No such file or directory.

So I thought maybe it needs updating so ran 'opkg update'

Code:
wget: can't open '/Packages.gz': Read-only file system
Collected errors:
* opkg_download: Failed to download http://hummypkg.org.UK/hdrfoxt2/base/Packages.gz, wget returned 1
* rm_r: Failed to open dir : No such file or directory.

I'm really confused as surely what I've done is a fresh install?

If you're not already running the latest CF (currently 2.19), then upgrade to that version. Then run fix-disk in maintenance mode with the -l (lowercase L) option.

Ok so I tried to reset the firmware with setrma and then installed cfw again but it still says RMA on the panel.

So I thought sod it and pressed factory reset which seems to have done bugger all other than retune channels and alter the volume.

I've come to a dead end here, anyone able to suggest anything else? Maybe put some older stock firmware on it instead of the 1.03.06?
 

xyz321

Well-Known Member
You could run the 'resetrma' diagnostic from the telnet menu to remove the RMA indication then reinstall the packages from the webif.

Alternatively, install the official firmware then reinstall the custom firmware.

I'll try that resetrma tomorrow, as for installing packages, I can't even access the webif yet :/ I'll post an update again tomorrow.

Thanks for the help again :)
