httpd_start and spiffs

Postby Przemek » Fri Jan 11, 2019 10:15 pm

I am trying to add spiffs functionality to http_server/simple example. For some reason adding spiffs initialization into server start routine breaks the code and it no longer responds to requests from browser, so if I type xx.xx.xx.xx/hello into browser bar I get timeout. The code is shown below. It is literally http_server example code with few lines from spiffs example inserted (plus relevant #include, not shown here)
If I added the spiffs initialization earlier, at the beginning of the function, the example runs correctly. Just this particular order is problematic. Program displays the message "Registering URI handlers" and the returned value is not-NULL so it is not early return from the function. The partition table is set up, spiffs partition is uploaded and files can be read.

I probably shall place spiff initialization even earlier, before initializing wifi in app_main, but since I noticed there is a problem here, can someone explain to me what are hidden interactions between spiffs and httpd and what can go wrong ?
Thanks in advance.

More info:

Setting log level to DEBUG or VERBOSE, globally or locally on httpd_main.c removes the issue.
It looks like a potential bug report.

That's how log looks like on DEBUG level - that's CORRECT operation:
  1. I (8258) event: sta ip: 192.168.89.101, mask: 255.255.255.0, gw: 192.168.89.1

Initializing the storage before the http server also make it works for me
