Re: stumbles in changing hosting

I think you mean indexing? That can be turned on or off for any directory on your site with the click of a button in cpanel. Right you are. File Manager|select the directory of interest|right-click|manage indices. I get a radio button choice of four possibilities, for which "standard indexing" make...

Re: stumbles in changing hosting

My remaining problem is that some non weather related files I've moved onto the new server don't show up to a browser the way they did on Steve's. I suspect this is some site configuration option, possibly related to the lack of an index.* file in the directories of interest. I learned that differe...

stumbles in changing hosting

This post is no substitute for the considerable support materials available. In particular, Steve's help and FAQ have good material on setting up a new web site. Moving from one hosting service to another is a special case of setting up a new site. This post concentrates on things that actually caus...

Moved my website to A2

This morning I completed the task of moving my Cumulus-generated website from being hosted by Steve Loft to being hosted by A2 hosting. I stumbled over a few things, and have one serious remaining unsolved problem--but that problem does not relate to weather. I intend to update this post with commen...

Suggested web site hosting offerings

In my early Cumulus years I just used my ISP's included web site hosting. Comcast dropped that included service some years ago, and I've been using Steve's offering since. It has been more reliable than Comcast was, so I'm sad that Steve is advising us to seek alternatives. I'm hoping that my fellow...

Maybe it was pulled for an hour?

This morning my Cumulus tray icon was blinking, and the error light got me to check. The log showed a continuous set of FTP timeout errors from 3:10 a.m. through 4:46 a.m., but none in the 2.5 hours since. Somehow I failed to spot the last page of posts in this thread before posting this one--I've e...

Re: Davis Weatherlink and Cumulus simultaneously

hi, but if i use always cumulus i lose the data when i use Weatherlink? Cumulus dowload the data from dataloggger? "Download" does not mean "erase". I use both Cumulus and Weatherlink. Day by day it is Cumulus, continuously running, keeping up to date itself, and transmitting my data to both my own...

Possibly time setting

In my case, I observed a substantial number of multiple hour dropouts. They tended to start at a consistent time in the middle of the night. I eventually learned that was the time that Cumulus updated the console clock. The VP2 console is something of a one thing at a time beast, and I believe it is...

Re: Cumulus startup anomalies on my suspect hardware

Whatever is at the heart of it, I'd appreciate any suggestions of anything I can try as other than trying Cumulus MX [Cork Harbour / UTC+1] NNNN++++ I shall comment here as thread starter. I found that in my case activation of the Cumulus function which adjusts console clock to agree with the PC wa...

Re: Solar Data and "Max" Values

There been some nice curves in this thread recently concentrating on the match between some models and actual observed intraday variation. However with a few years experience here in Albuquerque, I think the more important model tracking error for Cumulus is seasonal rather than intraday. For those ...

Re: Upgrading Vue ISS to Vantage PRO2 PLUS

If you are using Cumulus to make your own web site, the template modifications required to get solar and UV reporting the way you like are rather more than just a box tick. But getting a Wunderground report to include them is pretty much just a matter of finding the boxes, and perhaps later adjustin...

Scheduled task works for me

Until recently I had my Cumulus installation running on a Windows 7 machine, and used a scheduled task to start it up. A few weeks ago I moved Cumulus to a Windows 10 machine, but did not get around to implementing the scheduled task revision to startup Cumulus. Unfortunately, this meant that when I...

Re: MX better regarding Davis reception

very many people are using MX for their production system. It appears to be as reliable as Cumulus 1 ... The main decision is whether you are happy with the different architecture of MX, and whether you can live without those facilities in Cumulus 1 yet to be added to MX. That adjusts my understand...
