Re: Sunshine hours

I find the same in the UK, *generally* in Winter the skies are clearer (when its not cloudy! :roll: ) and I up the transmission factor, in summer the air is more murky and transmission factor comes down. Really it should be set on a day-by-day basis depending on atmospheric conditions, but we aren't...

Re: Sunshine hours

The best place to start with your tuning is the solar graph in MX - on a nice cloudless day compare the theoretical and actual curves. You then need to change the Transmission Factor (if using the RS calculation) or Turbidity value (if using the Bras calculation) to get the values around midday to m...

Re: MX build 3044 - twitter uploads

You can always create your own Twitter file. Just have Cumulus process a text file with some tags in it. Of course you wouldn't have the custom interval, but that can be solved via an external task or by having Cumulus call a script at each update interval that only tweets at set intervals. Guess I'...

Re: MX build 3044 - twitter uploads

Ah, yes. I added URL encoding to b3044 because MX itself sends the text as a URL and some people had issues with extended characters causing messages to not be sent. Sorry I couldn't test this as I fall into the large group of people who cannot use the MX twitter feature anymore :( If you need the T...

Re: Cumulus MX Announcements and Download - PLEASE READ FIRST

A toe in the water! :lol: This is a test of my build process and understanding of parts of the code as much as anything. Full credit to Steve for making his source code available. I will be making the updated source available - probably on Githhub - when I've worked out some details. I've uploaded b...

Re: New Cumulus Home

Until you log in you are an anonymous user so the forum doesn't know which messages you have read and which you haven't. Once logged in it does know, and maybe trying to fetch some enormous list of unread from the DB?

Re: New Cumulus Home

Good tip - maybe other people with the "slow" problem could click "Mark all read" from the "unread" list, or "Mark forums read" from the main index.

Re: CumulusMX not connecting to WH1080, help needed

Fair enough, but one last question as I'd like to understand the problem... Had mono been updated since you last started MX?

Re: CumulusMX MySQL DB

Ah, so you will have to use your host name rather than localhost. Same as FTP.
You may find that you also have to add your home IP to the allowed remote access list on the DB.

Re: CumulusMX MySQL DB

Localhost will resolve to 127.0.0.1 so that is nothing to worry about.

Is CMX actually running on the same server as the database?

Re: CumulusMX not connecting to WH1080, help needed

I'd have a look at your Cumulus.ini file, it may be corrupt. Save it and try using one from a recent backup in the backup folder.

Re: CumulusMX MySQL DB

Yes, that should work - you will need to run each pf the "create tables" buttons after saving the new table names. What I would do though (if you want to preserve your Cumulus 1 data into MX) is to "copy" your existing tables including the data to the new table names. Then all you need to do is amen...
