Re: It would be nice to save the lightning data to a file

I also have a piece of Python code running on my Raspberry Pi, just after midnight, that gets the total lightning for the previous day and writes that to a second table (ESDaily) along with Max and Min values for the other extra sensors. Finally the Python code creates a .json file with the total d...

Don't install Cumulus on your desktop. This is mentioned in the Wiki. Best place is c:\CumulusMX

Re: migrating old data to cumulus MX

most every time I run the program it says Downloading Archive Data blah blah runs through - processed 0% to 100% TWICE That's normal. It's because downloading a lot of archive data can be slow and new archive data can be added/created while this is happening. The second request is made to pick up a...

Re: Using SFTP

If you've got full control of the server then you will be able to.

If it is your server, like you said in another topic, surely you can change the server config to accept the older protocols?

I thought you said in another post that passive works? I may be mistaken but I thought that was what I read.

Wait .... are you actually hosting the server? The file /etc/ssh/sshd_config is the SSH server config file, not the client.

Re: migrating old data to cumulus MX

Is your Cumulus logging interval the same as your VP logging interval? If they're different that usually generates a load of archive messages in the logs.

Re: WH1080 not communicating with CumulusMX on Linux Mint

Well, I might just give in to your arguments. :D I used lsusb myself and the weather station shows up, but there is no info about which file represents it in the /dev folder. Or how to refere to it in any other way. I would use udev to do this rather than changing perms manually on anything under /...

Re: WH1080 not communicating with CumulusMX on Linux Mint

First is the fact, that it needs to enter password everytime Cumulus starts. I know it should not get shut down often, but the computer is a temporarry solution, because it sometimes unexpectedly crashes. Even though that may be automated. Next is just giving superuser privileges to a program that ...

Re: Using SFTP

When using ftp via ssh outside the network and when i input the username and password i can access the cumulus files and when cumulus trys to upload it timed out errors. That's like comparing oranges and bananas, never mind apples. If you SFTP from outside your network to your Pi, you are initiatin...

Re: FTP issues

Passive mode is unsecure you gotta open a load of ports? Only on the server side (that's why some providers dislike it). They're both as secure/insecure as each other. In both cases, the data transferred between client and server is unencrypted and therefore able to be read by anybody with the know...
