What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

From the /import web page, accessed through "Add an application" link in the "Edit profile" page, my projects can not be imported and the error message is not clear:

  1. Go to http://careers.stackoverflow.com/import/project/65831
  2. Type https://www.civiclinks.it/en/
  3. Click "Get project"
  4. The "Sorry, we could not retrieve that URL for some reason." error message appears.

The same behaviour appears using these links:

Might the HEAD request be failing (meta.stackexchange.com/questions/132026/…)? –  Bart Aug 21 '12 at 8:45
    
Using web-sniffer.net it appears to reply with a 200 (on HTTPS). HTTP replies with a 301/Moved permanently, but it seems correct. –  Michele Di Cosmo Aug 21 '12 at 8:50
    
These URLs redirect to https:// equivalents, perhaps you should try the 302 endpoint instead? If that does work (e.g.https://www.civiclinks.it/en/) then Careers 2.0 should be updated to follow 30x redirects properly. If that doesn't work, perhaps Careers 2.0 doesn't handle (some?) SSL sites. –  Martijn Pieters Aug 21 '12 at 8:54
    
@MartijnPieters All the above mentioned endpoints have been tried and noone works (i.e. HTTP and HTTPS, returning redirect and OK answers). –  Michele Di Cosmo Aug 21 '12 at 9:10

Well, since your SSL cert is a DigiCert issue, it looks like Careers 2.0 either cannot handle HTTPS sites at all, or doesn't handle Transfer-Encoding: chunked; I don't see anything wrong with your sites in any case. –  Martijn Pieters Aug 21 '12 at 9:24

Happened to me with importing articles a while back: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/125403/…. They managed to fix it at the time though. Could it be the same issue here? –  Tudor Aug 21 '12 at 12:18
    
@Tudor behavior seems compatible with the one of your issue: it gets a while for the error message to appear. however, HTTPS returns a 200, not a redirect, so I don't know what happens under the hood on the careers website. –  Michele Di Cosmo Aug 21 '12 at 12:51
    
@Sid: I went ahead and put a bounty to get things moving. Hopefully a mod/staff will see it now and attempt a fix. –  Tudor Aug 23 '12 at 15:19
    
@Tudor: Hey, thank you so much! –  Michele Di Cosmo Aug 24 '12 at 15:40

This works now, and probably has for some time. Likely related to the HEAD issue listed in the comments (we switched back to a GET).
