Heads up - flightradar24

Tue Feb 05, 2019 11:14 am

Hi all,

I have a Pi (Model 2B 4.1.7-v7+ #817) serving flightradar24. Just looked at my online stats and nothing showing for the last week and have been downgraded to 'Basic". I hardly ever interact with this Pi, it sits there and does all my temperature logging, dump1090, flightradar etc but it seems fr24 needs an apt update, Did this and now back online, serving and back as 'Business'.

Just a heads up, Andy.

Hi,

I noticed I had stopped feeding as well, a restart of the service fixed it for me though, I didnt notice any FR packages when I done an update, did you read this somewhere ?

Ta,

No, I was looking for something on fr24 and saw I was Basic. I rebooted the Pi a couple of times, the fr24feed (or whatever) service was running, seemingly happily. I also restarted the service. When I did the update I did see 3 lines relating to fr24 but did not make a note of them. On a further reboot all was working again. As I say I had not done an upgrade to this Pi for several months.

This was not a real problem, just to people know that they might not be feeding in to fr24 as expected.

No worries matey, thanks for the follow up..

I found it sometimes takes the fr24 feeder to, get up to speed, as it were, glad ya sorted anyway.
