coldbox install via commandbox error - ForgeBox returned something other than JSON

I don’t believe that’s the actual URL being used. I think the original message simply had the plain text url, omitting the https, and one of our email clients automatically turned it into a link and defaulted the link to http.

Brad is correct,

What is posted is just an SSL certificate error message from Trend Micro. It is not the URL that is used by commandbox. It would have been https://www.forgebox.io. Anyway, it wouldn’t make sense to use http with port 443. As everyone knows 443 is the default SSL port.

Were you able to resolve this with your network administrators yet? I’m guessing they’re using some outdated software and/or outdated keystores to process SSL certs?

Thanks!

Brad,

Still no luck even after they’ve added an exception for that URL. Maybe there’s something else that is preventing access. I am getting an HTML 408 timeout error when issuing the 'install coldbox’ command.

I am still working with the network guys to resolve the issue. Will post update when successful. Thanks for the follow-up.

408 timeout? Hmm, that’s different from the other errors you posted. Can you copy/paste the full output of the console here?

Thanks!

Brad,

Here it is:

Installing package [forgebox:coldbox]
Verifying package ‘coldbox’ in ForgeBox, please wait…
Uh-oh, ForgeBox returned something other than JSON. Run “system-log | open” to see the full response.
GET https://www.forgebox.io/api/v1/entry/coldbox

408 Request Time-out

Can you run “system-log | open” as suggested in the error message and show me the response that ForgeBox (or your proxy) sent back? It will be the last thing logged at the bottom of the log file.

Thanks!
