[panomaki, Ushahidi] Hi there and thanks for inviting me to the chatroom ;-). I'm trying to get ushahidi to run on my testserver, but getting the infamous 'Sorry, something is wrong' error.
[panomaki, Ushahidi] Header information shows a 503 on the platform/api/v3/config/site URL.

[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] Hey @pantchox. No, swiftriver was not rewritten to Ushahidi v3. The project was sunset early last year.
[Angela Oduor Lungati, Ushahidi] You can access the open source code here: https://github.com/ushahidi/swiftriver and here: https://github.com/ushahidi/swiftriver-API

@Angela hi! so what is the difference, what are the tools that you use instead of swiftRiver, it has a nice concept for journalist room and collab

[panomaki, Ushahidi] Accessing the server locally gives the expected json response though.
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] Could you check that you can access /api/v3/config/site locally?

[panomaki, Ushahidi] yeah, using links in a terminal on localhost I can access $server/api/v3/config/site and get a json response.
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] Then where do you get the "Something went wrong" error?
[panomaki, Ushahidi] Accessing $clienturl.
[panomaki, Ushahidi] So, if I access http://ew.panomaki.com/ (where the client runs) I get the error. If I access ewserver.panomaki.com (where the platform runs), I get the json.

[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] so the JSON from the API looks ok. And running http://ew.panomaki.com does not give an error. I think I am missing something :-)
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] Do you get the error when you run http://ew.panomaki.com/ ?
[panomaki, Ushahidi] So if you run ew.panomaki.com from YOUR place you don't get an error? I get one, see the screenshot.
[panomaki, Ushahidi] This is weird. Just hit refresh and voila....
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] hmm...well the API looks like it's set up properly. I am not sure why you saw the error before.
