This is somewhat related to Bug #3973.

I have a system where the "password" for the Route53 DynamicDNS handler kept getting reset to something not-correct (I suspect LastPass was trying to be "helpful" and was changing it). There is no outwardly visible sign that this password wasn't working, until you click back to the dashboard and get the banner mentioning that there is a crash dump to view. I had to less /tmp/PHP_errors.log in order to figure out that not only was the IP not updating, there was a password problem. The GUI is displaying the IP in green as though everything is fine, when this isn't actually the case.

Please share the appropriate PHP messages in PHP_errors.log - if something ends up generating invalid PHP then that should at least be able to be easily fixed.

#2 Updated by Braden McGrath over 5 years ago

I have already submitted the error logs (multiple times) via the in-built mechanism, but I can re-create errors and grab the files and post here if that helps.

  • Affected Version changed from 2.2.4 to All

would need to know what IP you submitted it from (or at least the first couple octets) to identify the crash report.

#4 Updated by Braden McGrath over 5 years ago

70.60.165.x, I just submitted again.

When the password is incorrect (presumably similar error with a bad username?):

Alternatively, password is correct, but an error in the hostname, in this instance an extra period at the end: (making it a truly FQDN but apparently AWS doesn't like this)

If it would be helpful, I can probably get you guys a test "user" on our AWS so you can poke it. We only use AWS for DNS.
