Cause of HTTP Error 404

Asked by Jon Doblados on 2008-11-05

Hi,

I ran rescuetime_linux_uploader from the CLI,
put in the needed credentials, and it starts tracking
my active windows. But when the time comes to
post updates, it spews out this message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
HTTPError: HTTP Error 404: Not Found
Connection is down. Pretending we succeeded in logging in.
Uploading data...

Is it possible that a URL in the code is no longer
being used by rescuetime?

Thanks for your inputs.

Jon

Its a hard coded call to https://api.rescuetime.com/ on line 529 in uploader.py

that url gives a 404.

According to Joe Hruska, that base url is depreciated but they'll look into putting something in place.

Thanks for noting that! Do you feel up to writing a patch?

Well, it'd be something like the following for uploader.py , it wouldn't actually log in but test that the site is there. The site still reports that they haven't gotten an update from me, but the script says I logged in successfully. So perhaps something is still up.

529c529
< request = urllib2.Request('https://api.rescuetime.com/')
---
> request = urllib2.Request(RESCUETIME_API_URL + "handshake")

Any progress on this? https://api.rescuetime.com/ still seems to be down.

Patch applied. Hope this works!

Can you help with this problem?
