Good to know you seem to have solved the problem yourself.
Thanks for the heads up on the issue with jobe2. I wasn't aware it wasn't working well. I just looked at it, and it seems some sites have been abusing the service. Also it hadn't been rebooted for over a year. So I've rebooted it and put in a firewall block on three IPs that were flooding it. It seems to be going ok again.
By the way, if you have any further issues with your local jobe server, you might want to consider jobeinabox. Once you've installed docker, you can run up a jobe server in one command.
