10.7.12 Check the Web Server Hook on the Target system

The Web Server hook has already been configured by the previous step. The following instructions are about checking that it has succeeded.

1.  The Hub should be up and running. It uses port 8101. Go to your browser and enter the URL localhost:8101. A page similar to the following should be displayed (which you may notice used port 8088 rather than 8101).
The Treeish column should show the current branch - origin/master in this example and the url to post to is provided. This url needs to be copied to the GitHub web hook to be used in the step: 10.7.14 Connect the GitHub Repository to the Target system.

2.  Run the Smoke Test and look at the log. Make sure it has no errors, for example this error indicates that the SSH key cannot be found:

Host key verification failed.

fatal: Could not read from remote repository.


Please make sure you have the correct access rights

and the repository exists.

     If git fetch worked from the command line then the reason it failed could be due to the HOME environment variable being incorrect.
