What is Chef::HTTP?


#1

All,

I am trying to use a cookbook which uses Chef::HTTP. Chef doesn’t seem to
like it, and I can’t find any documentation on it. What could it be?

Thanks,
Douglas

I explained to you on IRC that it was added in a later version of Chef. Please don’t ask people to do your job for you in checking which version of Chef you are running. Cross posting questions because you don’t want to do any leg work is not cool.

Noah,

I upgraded to a later (latest) version of Chef.

(bitcasa-prod) dhcp-244-167:~ chef-client --version
Chef: 11.10.4

The problem persisted. I explain to you in IRC that I was still seeing the
error, and I don’t believe I saw a reply. If I did, sorry.

I also asked for guidance on a pointer to the relevant documentation. I
really do not appreciate your negative attitude.

Chef::HTTP is an internal Chef class. It is definitely present in Chef
11.10.4. Without posting the full text of the error, though, there’s
no way to guess what cookbook you’re using or what could possibly be
wrong.
