Pagekite site setup issues

Post by WanderingTree46 »

Hi everyone, I have tried following the documentation on ubos.net to get pagekite setup. I have a sitename picked out and I am currently within my trial period with Pagekite. When I get to the point where I am trying to set the site up on my UBOS box, ubos-admin createsite kicks back the error,

"ERROR: There is already a site with hostname * (any), so no other site can be created."

I haven't been able to figure this out yet.

If anyone can give me help so that I can get UBOS setup with Pagekite, I would really appreciate it.

Thank you

That's most likely because you already have a site on your UBOS device, such as when you have bought a UBOSbox from Indie Computing that auto-installs Nextcloud.

Code: Select all

ubos-admin listsites
will show you the site(s) you already have.

In other words, skip the "createsite" step.

ubos-admin listsites gives

nextcloud (17 accessories)

How do I then create a kite through PageKite to direct towards an already existing site, nextcloud? this is the piece I am missing.

Thank you.

Thank you for your help, j12t!

I was able to get the kite setup but I am getting a "Temporarily Unavailable"
ABCDEFG.pagekite.me is unreachable at the moment.
- Your pagekite.py may need to upgraded
-computer off
-computer disconnected from internet
-pagekite may not be running

I have verified that the status is active for my pagekite.

How do I check the config to make sure the "secret" is correct just to verify that it is? What else should I look at?

Thanks again.

Pagekite may need a while to propagate, between DNS and their server provisioning. A few hours is not unusual, and it may be longer.

Is it working now?

If not, what does "sudo ubos-admin status-pagekite" say?

status: active
active kites: abcdefg.pagekite.me
enabled kites: abcdefg.pagekite.me

when trying to access the site, it still gives the temporarily unavailable pop-up.

Pagekite support hasn't been able to help.
