I am unable to test the result in Chrome despite the following configuration.
options=’–load-extension="%WPTDIR%\extension" --user-data-dir="%PROFILE%" --new-window --no-proxy-server --no-first-run --no-default-browser-check --enable-experimental-extension-apis’
;For SSL support in chrome, enable the downloading of debug symbols
exe=“C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe”
options=’-profile “%PROFILE%” -no-remote’
;use current account=1
- In the user data i have mentioned the wpt_server, wpt_location and wpt_key accordingly
But each time i execute the tests, IE launches by default and not chrome
I am using the ec2 public instance as test agent
I also installed this package: http://www.webpagetest.org/installers/browsers/chrome.dat
I am against the wall now. Read most of the older threads in this forum to identify a solution but couldn’t succeed. Could someone give me pointers to get out of this situation…
Your locations.ini should look like this:
label=“AWS Ireland IE 9”
urlblast.ini is only used for IE. If you don’t want IE testing at all then it can be a bit simpler but Chrome and Firefox both share the same location and it’s implicitly the location in user data with a _wptdriver appended.
btw, you shouldn’t have to touch the AMI and put any location information in there. It’s all configured through user data
I see Chrome launching now. Appending “_wptdriver” did the trick !! Specifying location in the wptdriver and utlblast was something i was experimenting, having read through other posts i deleted them earlier.
But i now i have a new challenge. Chrome launches and then crashes immediately.
I got an error which says: “Could not load extension from C:\webpagetest\extension”.
I later read instructions from this URL: http://developer.chrome.com/extensions/manifestVersion and added “manifest”: 2 in manifest.json under C:\webpagetest\extension\manifest.json.
I also replaced the content in manifest.json on the test agent from this URL:
Still no luck. The browser keeps crashing.
It sounds like you are running really old agent code. The agents auto-update from the server so you should just have the newest agent updates in work/update on your server: https://sites.google.com/a/webpagetest.org/docs/private-instances#TOC-Updating-Test-Agents
What version of the server software are you using? 2.13 is the current release and should have already had new-enough updates in place that you wouldn’t be seeing the issues that you are: https://github.com/WPO-Foundation/webpagetest/releases
After the update Chrome works. Thanks Patrick !!
