Unable to upload images on fresh install


#1

I have a fresh install of ODM and WedODM on an Amazon AWS instance running Ubuntu 14.04. When I upload a test dataset from the wiki, it just sits there and never begins uploading. The project shows 0.0% and 0 bytes after leaving it do its thing after several minutes. I get no errors or messages.


#2

Uploading on Amazon AWS can be sometimes extremely slow. I have experienced it many times. Choose a region nearest to your location, uploading might be fast.

But the problem you mentioned happens to me when I deploy a node-odm on Amazon Cloud and add that node on my local machine to process the data. Nothing shows up while uploading but the upload takes place in background and the display comes when the processing starts.

May I know which instance you are using and what is the size of dataset.?


#3

Also, what browser are you using? Are there any errors in the web developer console?


#4

I am using Chrome, Piero.

I built the same server locally using a virtual installation of Ubuntu and setup ODM using docker, the same method I used with AWS and I have the same issue.


#5

From Chrome, press F12, navigate to the Console Tab. Reload the page, try to upload a dataset. Are there error messages? How about the Network tab? Do any of the network requests fail?


#6

Not sure if this is related, but its the only ‘error’ message I see.

modernizr-2.8.3.min.js:4 [Deprecation] Application Cache is deprecated in non-secure contexts, and will be restricted to secure contexts in M69, around September 2018. Please consider migrating your application to HTTPS, and eventually shifting over to Service Workers. See https://goo.gl/rStTGz for more details.

That error shouldn’t matter. You still haven’t answered us on:

  • which instance you are using and what is the size of dataset.?
  • How about the Network tab? Do any of the network requests fail?

I dont see anything in the network tab other than what I gave you. I am using the Ubuntu 16.04 Free Tier. I have also tried running the docker image on a local computer running in hyper-v with 4gb of ram and 30gb of hdd space, 6th gen i3 12gb of host ram.

dataset is ~160mb


#9

Can you share the URL and credentials for somebody to try to connect to WebODM and troubleshoot it?

A nano or micro instance is too small to run WebODM. You should have at least 2GB.


#10

Yea, I sent it to your meetup account

I got this working. I am working from a chromebook so I guess these arent compatible. I logged into a Windows 10 computer and the dataset went straight through.

I also managed to get my instance to auto scale using Amazon’s servers! :smile:
