APWeb no data is being received from the Ardupilot

Hi
I tried building this https://github.com/ArduPilot/APWeb in Ubuntu xenial running in WSL (windows sub system of linux windows 10 ) successfully.
its runs without error with below command

sudo ./web_server -p 80 -s /dev/ttyS3 -b 115200

But the web interface is not fetching any data.

Please let me know what I am missing

I am double sure about the com ports.

Thanks

Are you sure of the baud rate? Can you connect mavproxy to the same port
and get data? How about screen(1)?

Also, https://github.com/ArduPilot/APWeb/pull/8 will probably make
things work much better for you - and I’d appreciate independant testing
of that PR!

Hi Peterbarker,
Thanks for a quick reply. Also you have put in lot of efforts into that branch.
I tried using your branch now. One thing I noted was returning response.

"http://127.0.0.1/ajax/sysinfo.json" { "uptime": 0, "free_mem_dma": 0, "free_mem_kernel": 0, "fc_mavlink_count": 0, "fc_mavlink_baudrate": 115200 }

baud rates are ok as it works with the same with pymavlink, mission planner and q ground control.

Also I tried some debugging with some printf and I found code is not crossing this line
https://github.com/ArduPilot/APWeb/blob/master/web_server.c#L560
and when I print the buffer I get some sequences of question mark characters().

Also Note that my hardware is APM 2.5 with ArduCopter V3.2.1 (36b405fb) firmware
Free RAM: 1999
Fw Ver: 120

Good stuff.

I assume, then the read() call is returning bytes?

The line you’ve highlighted will return true if a packet has been found in
the input stream. Pretty much the only thing that could be wrong in that
case would be a serial settings mismatch - perhaps we’re not setting the
serial port up correctly.

Can you run “stty </dev/ttyS3” after (successfully) running MAVProxy on
the port, and again after (presumably unsuccessfully…) running APWeb on
the port, please?

Peter

Wish Every one a Happy New Year

@peterbarker
I tried out this one

just updating baud rates to 115200 to the command they had in above link.
And it worked magically.

I guess it was a port that was not configured correctly.

Thanks a lot for your Help.

PS: your modification branch does work real good I would say it can be merged.
