An error occurred while uploading your pfSense configuration to portal.pfsense



  • I've been seeing an error every time I make a change to my system.  I didn't see anything on a search.  Can you point me in the right direction?

    An error occurred while uploading your pfSense configuration to portal.pfsense.org

    Version 2.1 on Dell Edge 850, 4GB RAM, 64GB HDD, 2 CPU x2 core Xeon 3.0Ghz.



  • I guess you have the AutoConfigBackup package installed. Make sure:

    1. you have the correct username, password etc in the package settings
    2. your subscription is up-to-date
    3. pfSense has proper internet access out the default gateway


  • All checked and verified, but still getting the error.

    I looked in the log file just after sending and I see this:
    php: rc.interfaces_wan_configure: The command '/sbin/ifconfig 'em0' inet delete' returned exit code '1', the output was 'ifconfig: ioctl (SIOCDIFADDR): Can't assign requested address'



  • Hello,
    I'm having this same error occur so when I look at the backup log one is firing off every hour which seems to much.  I believe it has something to do with pfBlockerNG updating every hour.  Is there a way to eliminate pfBlockerNG update from firing off the auto config updater?
    thanks,
    Jim
