A true Realtime Interval

I was wondering if it is possible to create an option to have a true realtime interval. ie Cumulus uploads are triggered only when Cumulus detects an update from my Fine Offset PWS and not on a time interval. This would eliminate a lot of duplicate realtime.txt uploads (at most 3 FTP's are identical...

Re: Cumulus RealTimeLog Rotate Script (PHP)

Yes it is obfuscated and the actual path is good. I am just not sure of the use of "-q", "-code=", and if am missing anything.

Re: Need help with a php script

Hi Ray, It is odd to read about putting some code/script above the highest directory Its working fine above the root directory. I have it up there because I need to avoid bots hitting the file ( robots.txt is only obeyed by legit bots! ) and triggering it thus messing up the days. I have a cron job ...

Re: Need help with a php script

And thank you too beteljuice, I am still going to work on your script. It helps me learn from the experience. Right now it is trying to explode the literal term "rain.log" and "realtime.txt" and injecting the literal word "Array" into rain.log. I tried $rawdata = explode ( ' ', $raw[0] ); and $raind...

Re: Need help with a php script

Thanks Ray, Actually in work right out of the box! I will go threw it to see what else the file is trying to do unneeded. I had to add $HOME = "/home/path/to/log/and/txt/"; chdir($HOME); so I could move the php above public_html. I want to trigger it once a day by a cron job, not by every Tom, Dick ...

Wow, I missed the ; too. Now it gets as far as dumping the log then it is looking for a parameter.

Re: Need help with a php script

Its long but heres part of it. It is based on TNET's realtimelog.php $DATA = preg_split('/ +/', $rawdata[0]); $fp = fopen( $SITE['datafile'] , 'a' ); if ($fp) { $info = ""; $first = 1; foreach($DATA as $key) { $info .= " "; $info .= $key; } fwrite($fp, $info . "\n" ) ; fclose($fp); }

Each day the daily rain is being pulled from realtime.txt at 11:59pm with a cron job and added to the end of my rain.log so I can get ...
