RealmStatus: No Status

Postby heath » Wed Dec 13, 2006 5:24 pm

***edited to fix path to realmstatus.php***

Hello all,

I installed WoWRoster the other day in order to display the realm status and population on my guild's home page.

However, it doesn't appear that RealmStatus is able to receive the pertinent information that it needs. I think this may be due to a blocked port on my webhosts side.

What happens is that the page loads just fine except for the realm status module (I'm using Joomla). That section will take a long time to load up and when if finally does there is either no image or it displays a question mark for the realm status and 'no status' for the population.

When I first made the module, instead of having my site in the URL I had another guilds address and it worked just fine then. As soon as I put in my own address it started having these issues.

Is there a port that I need to have my host open up to allow this to work? The reason I ask is that I also installed another module to display the status of my TeamSpeak server but something appears to be blocking it as well (I already confirmed with my TS host that everything is fine on their end).

All the relevant info I can think of:
site: http://ibeapirate.com
path to roster: /roster
WoWRoster version: 1.7.1
host: BlueHost
OS: linux
TS host: pure-voice
Joomla version 1.0.11
MySQL version:4.1.21
module:
Code: Select all
<div class="moduletable"><h3>Realm Stat</h3><div style="text-align: center"><br /><img src="http://www.ibeapirate.com/roster/realmstatus.php" alt="Realm Stat" width="87" height="30" /> </div></div>


Thanks in advance.

Thanks for pointing that out. ***embarassed***

I've changed it to point to the actual location: http://www.ibeapirate.com/roster/realmstatus.php

The problem still remains.

OK. This is my first install. I just installed WoWRoster to get the RealmStatus. so, If I upgrade to the 1.7.2 beta it should work? what ports do I need to open to make it work?

I dunno if it is specific ports, but I can tell you that it uses the php function
curl
or if that fails
file_get_contents

It fetches the data with an ordinary HTTP (port 80) connection to the realmstatus URL listed in your config. I can't imagine a hosting provider blocking outbound web requests, because too many applications scrape data from external web pages, but sometimes you run into an ignorant hosting provider.

I just diff'd realmstatus.php between 1.7.1 and 1.7.2b1 and there are a few differences in the parsing routines, but I didn't take time to see if they were relevant. Did Blizzard change the format of the XML with the 2.0 patch? They don't have a version number in either their XML or XSL file.

I just fetched the XML from the supplied URL in your config:

http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/realmstatus/status.xml

The record for Windrunner looks like this:

<r n="Windrunner" t="1" s="1" l="2"/>
