Show cause in logs.

It would be really nice if we could see the cause of the problem in SER log. For example:

"no engines matches"... ok but what is the cause?

I can see that some steps already got this, but not all.


  • +1 to this. There can be additional log file option which would parse all errors in details 
  • No engines matches is bigger than this. There is a lot of issue that can cause this. Sometimes proxy wont download html (empty response) , sometimes engine logic can be really complex. Other time, while importing lists from verified site list, SER cannot identify the engine beacuse its not the link that SER started with.

    hmm I can try to add some more data but if it does not match, then usually because of "page must have" and giving the exact reason here would be too much data.
  • Maybe we can trim that to X chars?

    From what i experience now, is "no form at all" when using proxies. Can we have proxy added in log to check if the issue is caused by blocked ip etc?
  • SvenSven
    yes, lets collect entries here where you would like to have more information...please copy/paste the exact line so I can quickly update.

    1) add http status codes to log <- really good for debugging
    2) matches engine, no engine matches <- why no match ?
    3) login successful, submission successful, registration successful, 
    4) wrong engine detected

    already working (showing cause):

    1) submission failed, login failed, registration failed

    other things noticed, less important:

    1) SER shows "domain change" when redirects from www to non www and vice versa
    2) shouldnt that be in one log entry?

     [!] 01/93 No unused E-Mail found
    [-] 01/93 form filling aborted http://....
  • wrong engine detected (CAUSE1|CAUSE2) - https://...

    Two causes are shown, but only one is present on the website.
  • SvenSven
    changed it in next update...however for some situations you will see still both causes when this is not found so you know that none matched.
  • Hmmm... that sounds... weird :dizzy:
  • SvenSven
    well if you have a "page must have=cause1|cause2" and none of them matches to continue, you want to know them all as you can not show just one of them.

    Ok, bad from my side. Its different with wrong engine detected (here 2 causes are shown where only one should)

    page must have=!cause1|!cause2

    Negative match
  • SvenSven
    yes, that should be better in current update.
  • I am running newest update and i have to say no :(
  • SvenSven
    post a sample line where you don't like the extra info ;) There are so many lines that it's hard to update each and every part in the program with new debug data.
  • Yep sorry
