Site Status Values

The last_refresh_status field can have the following values:

acceptedThe site provided a valid list, which your server is now using.
same_sequenceThe site provided a list with the same sequence number as your existing list, so your server continued using its existing list.
unsupported_versionThe site provided a list, but your server does not support the list format version number in the list. You might need to update rippled to a newer software version.
untrustedThe site provided a list from the site that is signed by a cryptographic key pair your server is not configured to trust. You may want to check for typos in your validators.txt file and check to see if the list publisher changed their cryptographic keys.
staleThe site provided a list with a lower sequence number than the list your server is already using.
invalidThe site provided a list or signature that was not validly formed.
