Can't get server response

(alex) #1

I set a new instance of LTTool server local. I can visit localhost:8081/?language=en&text=my+text and get XML response correctly. But while I deploy the website of LT. The Index warning me that

"Error: Did not get XML response from service. Please try again in one minute."

I’ve already modified the proxy.php:
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_URL, “https://localhost”);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_PORT, 8081);

as well as include/header.php:
languagetool_rpc_url : “http://localhost/online-check/tiny_mce/plugins/atd-tinymce/server/proxy.php”,

By the way, the default request URL is :

I got this: Error: SSL certificate problem, verify that the CA cert is OK. Details: error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed
Then I try to set curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false); to ignore SSL verify, but it doesn’t work.

Does anyone help?
Beat Regards,

Have you tried using just HTTP instead of HTTPS? As long as the server process is running on localhost it shouldn’t be less secure.

Thanks dnaber, I change to http as you said. The website still warning "Error: Did not get XML response from service. Please try again in one minute."

But the server in CMD dialog echo : Check done: 272 chars, en-US, http://localhost/, handlers:1, queue:0,7 matches, 1648ms, agent:-, sent. It suppose means the server receive the request. But the website client still warming error Did not get XML response from service.

At last, after send request : http://localhost:8081/?language=en&text=my+text. The server console echo An error has occurred. Stacktrace follows: java.lang.ILLegalArgumentsException: Missing “text” parameter at org.languagetool.server.LanguageToolHttpHandler.handle(
I wonder how to fix it.

It seems the proxy doesn’t work. Can you try debugging with curl as documented on

You can ignore that on the first request.

To test proxy.php,
curl --data “language=en-US&text=My+texd” http://localhost/online-check/tiny_mce/plugins/atd-tinymce/server/proxy.php
echo: Error: couldn’t connect to host.

But I can visit the proxy.php, it shows Error: this proxy only supports POST requests

my PHP Version 5.2.6. and my proxy.php is this one you mentioned in other topics.

So you can access http://localhost/online-check/tiny_mce/plugins/atd-tinymce/server/proxy.php with a browser but not with curl? That’s strange, maybe try instead. You could also look for your web server logfile, it should contain the PHP errors, if any.

It works somehow, I didn’t modified the proxy.php nor languagetool_rpc_url neither. Just that good!
I’m really appreciate for your help, dnaber.

Best wish,
