CumulusMX not connecting to WH1080, help needed

Post by jnstllng » Sat 01 Dec 2018 8:01 pm

I am a bit lost and just tried for two hours to fix my problem without success.
For almost two years I have a FineOffset WH1080 on my RasPi 3 running fine. Today the GUI crashed and I needed to restart after four month for the first time. That happened also in the past, but after restarting the Pi, I was able to start everything fast and easy.

The station is found by 'lsusb' as in the past and reports the same as before:

Code: Select all

Bus 001 Device 005: ID 1941:8021 Dream Link WH1080 Weather Station / USB Missile Launcher
Starting/restarting CumulusMX with the nice start/stop script throws no error, but nothing updated. When I open a brwoser on my Pi and point at http://localhost:8998/index.html, no data show up. :-(

Starting CumulusMX with 'sudo mono CumulusMX.exe' gives me the following which I do not understand:

Code: Select all

Current culture: German (Germany)
Serial: 74FECEABEB2DA94ECB5EBA0CD11A7137
Cumulus MX v.3.0.0 build 3043
[ERROR] FATAL UNHANDLED EXCEPTION: System.DivideByZeroException: Division by zero
  at CumulusMX.Cumulus.ReadIniFile () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 
  at CumulusMX.Cumulus..ctor (Int32 HTTPport, Int32 WSport) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 
  at CumulusMX.Program.Main (System.String[] args) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 
I am a bit frustrated since everything is set up correctly and was running well all the time.
Can somebody give me hint what's going on?

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.

Thanks for the hint, but this did not fix the problem.
I also tried a complete reinstallation of everything without success.
Even though I love Cumulus, I now converted to weewx which worked right out of the box... :-/

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

The Mono version was the same as before with 4.0.5
No issues before. I really had no idea.
Cumulus is still on my Pi. Maybe I will try again on the weekend.
