Error initializing ChallengeClient module

6 November 2016, 12:04
I am running Hiawatha (10.4) on my Fritz!Box 7362SL. Now after updating the firmware from 6.30 to 6.50 Hiawatha shows me following message: "Error initializing ChallengeClient module."

Any ideas what could cause this kind of problem?
Is it possible to deactivate the ChallengeClient module with a parameter for testing?

hiawatha -m: "Enabled modules: ChallengeClient, FileHashes, TLS v2.3.0, ThreadPool".

If that module fails initialization, there is something with the random generator. Does the system have a /dev/random?

To disable the module, edit and comment the line for the ENABLE_CHALLENGE setting (line 31).

Yes, the system has "/dev/random" and I set it to r/w (chmod 777) like suggested in an other topic, but it didn't help.
So I disabled the ChallengeClient module in the binary now.
This time I get following errors: "Warning: error redirecting stdin" and "Warning: error redirecting stdout"
My log files are empty...something strange is going on

To me, this sounds like an upgrade that hasn't gone well...

Is it possible to run the webserver somehow as root since "ServerId" doesn't allow that?
This way I could check, if it's really a permission problem of the user...

No, Hiawatha does not allow it because of the risks involved.
