Registration Wizard Error: HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently.

 

When using the Registration Wizard, the error appears: HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently.

Products Affected: Biotas, LOAS


Cause: This is caused by our servers now requiring full security protocols for all connections.

History: Some older software products do not have the ability to use a secure connection. To support seamless, direct and within product registration for these products, some gateways were allowed to access our severs without a secure connection. This was changed in 2023. Now all incoming connections must use a secure connection. Using the registration or remote database connection features in these products to ecostats.com servers therefore no longer function directly and will return a 301 error code (this code provides the new secure link, but these products can not use this link).

Solution: To register your copy of these products all users from now on must use the web browser option. To aid in registration with a web browser, do note that the browser used may be on any device, including a cell phone.
