I did try to install software but I am always getting the 404 error

It should work as the post above me mentioned.
If it doesnt try the beta from here:
http://www.networkedmediatank.com/showth...?tid=27251

If that doesn't work as well try the FAQ from the first post.

I'll test out rebooting my PCH tonight to see how it affects my cron job.

I tried a reboot and it does in fact remove the cron entry. Is this also a known issue/design? I thought CSI (appinit) would automatically redo the cron entry upon reboot?

--
Also - just as a heads up, I tried running the appinit.cgi command from a PHP application and while appears to successfully run, some of the core functionality doesn't appear to work -- such as the updating / adding of cron entries.

Example:
PHP Code:
unset($output); // clear the array in case we've already used it
$status NULL// clear the status in case we've used it
exec("/share/Apps/AppInit/appinit.cgi rescan NewzBook"$output$status); // run the command and get the screen output and status
echo "The command returned a status of $status <br/>"// this outputs 0 (it successfully ran)
echo "<pre>".implode("<br/>"$output)."</pre>"// this shows the output below 

The output from the appinit rescan command from PHP is:
Code:
Found hardware type: Syabas A/B type


Application Initializer version 1.12
---------------------------------------
Checking for new version: up to date
Checking Application Initializer profile: Valid
Rescanning NewzBook: Done

The thing is, if I do a crontab -l just after a reboot, then run the debug page which includes the appinit rescan command, then run the crontab -l command again the cron entry never gets added. (fyi crontab results in a exit code of 127 from php -- which typically indicates the command cannot be found)

However, if I run the appinit rescan command from the shell (telnet), it does update the cron entry.

RE: [CSI] Community Software Installer 2.5.0 (Win/Linux/OSX/Web/NMT)
For the time being, I have created a basic script which will check for my cron entry (using the AppInit style comment at the end) and will add the entry if it doesn't exist. I'm running this as the daemon script so after reboot it will automatically try to check if the cron entry exists and add it if it doesn't.

I've included the script contents below in case anyone else will find it helpful:
Code:
#!/bin/sh

case "$1" in
  start)
    if crontab -l | grep -q "#APPINIT_NewzBook#";
    then
      echo "It looks like the NewzBook entry already exists."
      exit 0
    else
      echo "The NewzBook entry doesn't appear to exist in cron. We will attempt to add it."
      
      #Getting the current cron entries and putting them in a temporary file
      crontab -l > /tmp/cronentries.a
      
      #Adding our NewzBook entry to the temporary file...
      echo "*/30 * * * * /share/Apps/NewzBook//crontab.sh #APPINIT_NewzBook#" >> /tmp/cronentries.a
      
      #Replacing the old cron entries with the contents of the temporary file...
      crontab /tmp/cronentries.a
      
      #Removing the temporary file...
      rm -f /tmp/cronentries.a
      
      if crontab -l | grep -q "#APPINIT_NewzBook#";
      then
        echo "NewzBook has been successfully added as a cron entry!";
        exit 0
      else
        echo "ERROR: Newzbook could not be added as a cron entry.";
        exit 1
      fi
    fi
    ;;
  *)
    echo "Usage: $0 {start|stop}"
    exit 1
esac

exit 0

Just save the file as whatever you want to call it in the root of your application directory (and makes sure it is executable and has unix line endings). In my case I called it cronchecker.sh. Then in the appinfo.json, I have:
Code:
{
    appinfo_format="1",
    name="NewzBook",
    version="1.2.4beta",
    enabled="1",
    daemon_script="cronchecker.sh",
    crontab="*/30 * * * * #PATH#/crontab.sh",
    //setup_script="setup.sh",
    //gayaui_path="#PATH#/webui",
    webui_path="#PATH#/webui"
}

I'll have a look at it. Some user reported this before.
I cannot reproduce it.

It all boils down to when the crontab is created. It seems that the NMT is overwriting my changed again during boot.
I'll have a look at it again and try to figure out a better way of integrating the crontab lines. (or better time)

@LaySoft : this not a question for the Community Installer but rather the individual app.
And the answer already exist in other threads. Here's one thread that appeared in my search, there might be better/other ways in other threads:

I was just about to ask the same thing! I have installed the CSI Gaya app for the C200. I found that in Web Services. But then I installed a theme (indiana jones) and then Extended Gaya, Llink, DownloadManager and Litepodder. But I cant see them anywhere.

RE: [CSI] Community Software Installer 2.5.0 (Win/Linux/OSX/Web/NMT)
Extended Gaya should appear among the web services (press Sources button twice)
llink shows up among the network shares (it's a technicality, since it streams to itself, sort of Wink )
Themes are, AFAIK, not available to the C200 yet. That would be A/B only.
Download Manager is also, AFAIK, A/B only, so far.
Litepodder; I don't think it has a UI; instead you have to edit the config file to add podcasts/RSS feeds, and then they should appear in /share/Video/something

I think you might have configured the CSI wrongly as well or are using the currently stable one.

Please use the beta version of CSI from here:
http://www.networkedmediatank.com/showth...?tid=27251
Also make sure you have configured CSI to C200 hardware type.

I've contacted the site hosting provider, again.
Sorry for the inconvenience, I'll post again when the issue is solved.
I'll go look for a new hosting provider soon, the current one does have it's glitches now and then.
