Can't access web if

I cannot access the webif. and i have tried my best to find an answer on these pages before asking for help...
My HDR has Software version 1.03.12, and the CF 3.10

I have a internet connection and can use putty to access the telnet menu on the Humax. I have tried various things in there, including upgrade, fixweb etc as well as in the CLI the: opkg install webif --force-reinstall
[is it normal that i have to put in the 4 digit PIN to access the telnet menu? - might it be that?]

... but still, in IE or Firefox, if i put the IP address in. i just cannot get the webif to work:

"Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at 192.168.1.4.​

The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web."

i hope it is an obvious, simple thing i have missed.... ??

Yes. No.

Sounds like the web server is not running. What does "service" report at a telnet prompt? Use the "cli" option to get to the command line.

Try "service start lighttpd" followed by "service" again.

Hi. Here's that done..

To return to the menu, type: exit

humax# service start lighttpd
Starting lighttpd...
/mod/sbin/lighttpd: can't load library 'libpcre.so.1'
Done.
humax# service

Name Installed Autostart Running
---- --------- --------- -------
cifs No No No
lighttpd Yes Yes No
nfs No No No
samba No No No

Syntax:
service start <service>
service stop <service>
service auto <service> (toggles autostart)

...and i have decrypted my first recordings. so thank you very much for all your help.

out of interest, is there an obvious reason why there was a problem?

thanks.

I've no idea. Might be worth running fix-disk from maintenance mode in case a crash has upset your filesystems a bit.

If you get two crashes in quick succession it may lead to some of the packages stored in the flash memory to be disabled. As you mentioned crashes, I would suggest running the 'fix-flash-packages' diagnostic (webif >diagnostics or telnet). It only takes a couple of minutes to run.

Hi

I've had a similar issue each time I upgrade packages webif stopped recently, seems lighttpd service stopped, starting it got me back in without a reboot.

Ran fix-flash-packages from cli, results came back with 1 error
