HipChat WebApp not working 2.0.7 (2016.11.08.200718) or later


I created a new AMI with HipChat 2.1 build 2.1.0, but I wasn't able to connect at all to this instance. So, I decided to upgrade from HipChat Server 2.0 build 1.4.0 to HipChat Server 2.0 build 2.0.7. 

admin@hipchat:~$ hipchat upgrade -u -f

I'm able to connect with the client app (Mac OS and Windows 8), but the WebClient will not load at all. :sad:

Hi Rene,

Was is just DNS then?

Looks like. The strange thing is I didn't change DNS settings while upgrading HipChat. I will have a look next time.
