Unable to access Farm

Post by bill-lancaster » Wednesday 03rd March 2021 1:16pm

The Gambas One Farm has been blank for me for a while.
Just had a look at the gambas farm via the intro form in the Gambas ide.
I get the message shown in the attached screenshot
Any ideas what's going on?

This is not your error. I can't access the Farm either. This has happened a few times recently. I think they must be having a server issue of some sort. The Gambas One Farm gets all its data from the official Farm so if one is down then both are.

I got me suspicions about this.
I suspect hacking.

If at first you don't succeed , try it differently.

btw: what bugs me about the bug tracker, is that it the login is insecure: http not https

Well, who is the manager of that website?

CHARLIE , you broke it !!! LOl :lol:

It seems that Gambas.one is being blamed for this issue. I have replied to a message on the Gambas Mailing list: -

Hi Benoît,

I am the manager for this site and we are looking in to this. We are taking down this feature until the situation can be clarified. It seems strange that we have had this connection for a long time without issue, however I do not wish to cause any inconvenience.

I will update you further when I have established what is causing this.

Regards,

Charlie Ogier


I have emailed One.Com, the host of this site, requesting details regarding these accusations. I await a reply. In the meantime connections to the Gambas server have been disabled.

EDIT
I have received this: -

Hi Admin,

Thank you for contacting one.com.

We have received your message and we aim to get back to you within 24 hours.

If you need immediate assistance, you can also reach us 24/7 via live chat.

Best regards,

Lets hope you can trace the problem down.

Maybe someone is trying to make a custom gambas farm app that uses gambas one instead of the farm?
Or something?
Maybe a Captcha or some other kind of bot blocker may help?
or an IP tracker, i dunno

I think you must accept the blame, not yourself personally but the gambas one farm searcher, I would imagine it is well worked out as gambas.one/gambasfarm and not a guessed accusation. just accept with understanding.
Just double check it's not your code but external access or put something in to log stuff.
Hopefully One.com will get back you you and provide the same kind of details used to trace the farm issue here.

Well done for getting on it though , I feel for you m8, you can fix this I'm sure.

Best
