Webspace Change

Post by stephenmh » Wed 05 Dec 2018 2:26 pm

Hi All,

I have just changed my web space provider and pointed Cumulus MX on my Raspberry Pi to it.

Out of the 9 standard HTML files, Index.htm and a couple of others are uploading OK but others such as today.htm are not uploading. I enabled FTP logging, and the message for the failed files say 'No such file or directory'.

Does anyone have an idea what might be wrong?

Thanks in advance, Steve

I don't use RPi but expect the file processing and updates work the same as the PC/Windows version. Are your Web/FTP setting "include standard files" ticked or are they each added in as 'Extra web files' to be processed and uploaded? Do all the 9 standard file templates such as gaugesT.htm todayT.htm and trendsT.htm all exist in the web source folder?

Enjoy,
Paul

That is more likely to be an incorrect directory in the Webspace folder/Directory as per the wiki https://cumuluswiki.wxforum.net/a/Simple_Website_setup

It should be something like public_html or htdocs.

Thanks both. I have them set to upload to the public_html space which I think is correct?

I did some experimenting yesterday and found that it seems to work ok using active FTP mode.

The only issue now is that the guages sometime say offline and the NOAA files are not updating. I have the real-time settings at 120 seconds. I'll check the logs to see if there is a simple reason for it but wondering if there is any other setting or file I should check?

Thais again, Steve

Your http://www.wombourneweather.co.uk/realtime.txt
and http://www.wombourneweather.co.uk/realtimegauges.txt
are most often not being updated at 2 min (120 sec) interval and vary from 2 to 8 minutes so looks like some FTP issue.

Re NOAA, no data since 20181117
Your NOAAMO1218.txt is not where your November and earlier files are, and NOAAYR2018.txt does not include December. Check your Cumulus NOAA settings.

Enjoy,
Paul
