Cannot Create Menus

i installed commcare on my ubuntu server,
i feel like this issue is connected to formplayer, which i installed as the following

1- create the file submodules/touchforms-src/touchforms/backend/
URL_ROOT = ‘http://localhost:8000/a/{{DOMAIN}}’

2- copy scripts/get_webhost and append to root/etc/hosts

3- added FORMPLAYER_URL = ‘http://localhost:8010’ and BASE_ADDRESS = ‘webhost:8000’

so after i press make a new version on the applications page

Cannot Create Menus
Details: Unable to validate the forms due to a server error. Please try again later.

and on my server:

Hi Anas

We are in the process of removing touchforms so the instructions in the readme are a little out of date (though I’ve just updated them) but it looks like you’ve got it mostly right.

I’m a little confused since you have port 8010 specified in the FORMPLAYER_URL but the error is complaining about a connection to port 8080 which is the default port in Are you sure your localsettings file is being picked up correctly?

Hello Simon,

first of all thanks for your reply i really appreciate it.

so just a quick review of the what the changes i made really look like,

URL_ROOT = ‘http://localhost:8000/a/{{DOMAIN}}’

etc/hosts 	localhost	HCDC-16

CONTAINER=$(docker container ls | awk '/formplayer/ { print $1 }')
docker exec $CONTAINER sh -c 'cat /etc/hosts | grep webhost'

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1     localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters

##### FORM PLAYER ######

FORMPLAYER_URL = 'http://localhost:8010'
BASE_ADDRESS = 'webhost:8000'

I’m not really sure how to check if my is picked up correctly to be honst

Hi Anas

You misunderstood the instructions and have copied the contents of scripts/get_webhost into your /etc/hosts file.

Rather you should run that script and copy the output into /etc/hosts which should look something like the following: dockerhost webhost
