    To some extent, because I see a banner. It's probably not a wrong path issue.
    However, on my main webpage I normally see updated data every minute: http://mark014.beep.pl

    The banner is not updated on a regular basis. At the moment, I see measurements from 15 minutes ago: http://mark014.beep.pl/pogoda.php. Strange thing. I did not have such a situation so far.
    It looks like the banner refreshed only every hour...

    Are you sure you don't have TWO realtime.txt ?

    http://mark014.beep.pl/realtime.txt is updating correctly, but as you say the banner seems to have a different 'period'.
    Why is 'realtime' an extrafile - I don't remember that, but I could be wrong :roll:

    Correct, Cumulus will upload at the realtime interval so long as you tick the option in settings, no need to add it as an extra file.

    Unless you want to upload at longer than the reltime interval I guess?

    I had a similar problem when I first started using the banner. It's possible you may have it too.

    It turned out to be a caching problem and to solve it, I added this to my .htaccess file

    Code: Select all

    <Files banner.php>
    FileETag None
    Header unset ETag
    Header set Cache-Control "max-age=0, no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate"
    Header set Pragma "no-cache"
    Header set Expires "Wed, 11 Jan 1984 05:00:00 GMT"
    </Files>

    Thanks mapantz - haven't seen that one before.

    Does that mean the rest of 'the site' has a cache value set somewhere by hosting admin ?

    No I want to upload the realtime file every 50 secs.

    Maybe I put the extrafile when I had previous problems with paths. But I deleted the option and now it works. Thank you for your help.
