Message 5575 - Posted: 8 Jul 2015, 17:14:57 UTC

Hello all,

I receive the following error when I try to add the project to my BOINC client:

"Project not found. The URL you supplied is not that of BOINC-based project. Please check the URL and try again".

Has anyone experienced this? I was able to attached it a couple of months ago, but stopped contributing so wanted to re-attach this project.

Thank you

I have actually found out the solution for anyone that is having the same issue.

When joining from the boinc project page if you have this url:

http://csgrid.org

It will give you the error I mentioned above. Copy and paste this url instead and it should work.

http://volunteer.cs.und.edu/csg/


If found that URL from the Project list avaliable on BOINC:

https://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Project_list#Citizen_Science_Grid

You should connect to:

http://csgrid.org/csg/

As per the instructions here:

http://csgrid.org/csg/instructions.php

Maybe I should have this featured more prominently somewhere.

Your instructions were both promenent and clear.
I think the problem comes from the BOINC manager.
When you use it to pick a new project to attach to,
Citizens Science Grid is listed as: "http://csgrid.org"



It needs to be altered in the BOINC Program.
That's a shot of 7.4.42 x64 (the newest.)
It may be hard to get done since there seems to be nobody at the helm there lately.
You might have to make the change and submit it yourselves,

Oh no. I just posted to the BOINC mailing lists so maybe it will reach someone there.

That clears it up. I guess I should have went and looked at the instruction page :(

It seemed however that both of those links have worked and now I am crunching work units.

Thank you for your clarification.

Sorry about that! Hopefully they'll fix the BOINC manager link.
