WebInspect Rest API not working - Not able to create scans


I am trying to start scans via webinspect API on the development server (using curl commands), but it seems to error out. I get message "An error has occured."

Few points:

1. The webinspect API is a licensed version (10.40) for some websites like zero.webappsecurity.com.

2. SQL server version is 2008.

3. I have attached a log file also with the debug information.

4. Is there some prerequisites for the settings file. I started a basic scan using the GUI and then saved it and used the same settings file for the api. Is that the right way?

4. Here is my curl command:

curl -d "settingsName=Default&overrides={\"ScanName\":\"testing11\",\"StartUrl\":\"http://zero.webappsecurity.com:80\",\"CrawlAuditMode\":\"CrawlAndAudit\",\"StartOption\":\"Url\",\"A... "http://<hostname>/webinspect/scanner/"

Any help is appreciated.
