Note: I just read a bit more about error 302 and it looks like it might be a redirection problem. I'll look into it. Maybe it's a bug the webmaster didn't plan on 'introducing'. So far I've been scraping from his requested URL (which isn't the public-facing URL.)

I agree with most of what you said. Lestrades is generally better with a few nuances:
* Steam bundle pages sometimes contain games that are not linked to the steam version
* Search sometimes gets confused with certain characters and it is impossible to find them. I have to use barter and link to here. Sometimes it actually tikes a bit long and becomes frustrating (although rarely).
Don't worry, I understand you don't have time to make the changes.
Features here are certainly better here, than even the steam website. Incredible on how much money they have, and certain basic features are still poor compared to the rest.

Since Barter has the user base, they can copy features from here to grow even further. It is unfair, but that's how the world works. That is why having monopolies is really bad. Companies buying/destroying smaller companies, and becoming bigger and bigger. Of course I am exaggerating here, but without some kind of incentive users don't do shit to change their habits. This happens to every individual in any part of life. Change is hard :/
In terms of community, I don't see a problem having theirs on Steam, but would be nice to have a more broader approach to support other platforms.

If I were to choose which one I'd want, I'd choose Lestrades, because it makes my life so much easier. I'm sure the issues above could be resolved swiftly.
Besides the user base from Barter would move here, as there is no other option.

As for the last point, I stopped using google long time ago when I saw they hide links on purpose, and I'm not talking just about piracy, or porn, whatever, but things that are related to freedom of speech, specially if it is something bad about them. Thus I use duckduckgo.
But in order for people to find this website, unfortunately it will have to be found by google. It seems you are in need of some SEO.

This is a point for another discussion, but people should understand that Google and certain other companies have too much power over the internet and the user.

Okay guys, you can delete the thread over at the BVG Steam community!
The problem was with a configuration issue on this server!
I'm working on a fix.
Re: Issue(s)
« Reply #243,  »
The problem should be fixed, although it's a temporary one. @Akylen please don't forget to delete your thread!
I apologize about this issue. @devotee was supposed to fix all configuration issues with the server, but this one clearly is problematic. I'm a bit tired of it, honestly...

Done. I don't know how to close it, so I deleted it :/

Does anybody has the problem can't sync the newly added Origin's titles from the Wishlist on Steam?
Right now, I have 6 titles can't add into the Lestrade's Wishlist and when I sync the Wishlist from Barter.vg it shows no problem though I have that 6 titles on it.

The 6 titles are:
Mirror's Edge Catalyst
Need for Speed
Need for Speed Heat
Need for Speed Rivals
Burnout Paradise Remastered
Crysis 3

[EDIT]: Problem solved somehow now.

My fix for Barter issues was only partial; I made it more solid a few days after. I don't know if it impacted you.

And here we are again, the SSL certificates expired... I'm really sick of it.
I'll probably move to a new server soon. I'll have to see. Meh. This isn't what I need right now, the extra workload...

Lets Encrypt made it so easy, I am not sure why the problem still persists. It is quite easy to setup ;)

I haven't touched anything on the server so if something suddenly stopped working, it's not because an issue with it.

It seems that the certificate is renewed correctly but the apache daemon is not restarted when the certificate is renewed. However, there's a logrotate task every night that should restart the apache process when rotating the logs. Manually restarting apache does the trick, waiting for the next logrotate should also work but I haven't checked it.

I would really like to upgrade the server to the latest Debian release but you should expect some downtime with it. I'm also not sure it it's worth waiting for the next Debian release (I don't really know if it's going to be released, according to the Debian version history it should be sometime in 2021).

I'm all for a server update. Feel free.
Maybe it'll finally fix all the SSL problems. As I mentioned earlier, even cURL no longer works in the current setup when SSL is explicitly enabled. I've had to rely on file_get_contents instead, Which is less secure. (Although in my case, I'm only retrieving public data and not disclosing any sensitive information during the handshake, so it's not a problem per se, just something I'd rather not do as a proper web developer.)

curl should work in those cases with the '--insecure' flag

Well, I don't know, it's not working for me when disabling secure flags. Also, your flag format is for a command line call, I'm using PHP functions for that. ;)

curl is working with SSL sites system-wide using the command line executable, maybe it's the php5-curl package that needs an upgrade so the certificates included are up to date.

I think you can pass options to curl in php using curl_setopt. According to this it would be:

Code: [Select]
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);

What's the error you're getting when using curl in php? This might also work.

I tried using false earlier, but it failed to work as well. (I also tried variations involving VERIFYHOST and FORBID_REUSE.)
Maybe now it'd work because you renewed the certificate, but I'm not sure I'll take any chances. ;)
