    Discussion and questions about Cumulus weather station software version 1. This section and its subforums are the main place to get help with Cumulus. Anything which is not specific to the type of weather station goes in here; for anything specific to a type of weather station, please use the appropriate subforum. Use the 'website development' section for any questions relating to creating or running a web site for Cumulus data. Discussion of the stations themselves in these sections is fine.

    Hello,

    Very new to this.

    I am trying to use an Android app called 'Weather Station'. It is described as an Android app for Cumulus weather station software.

    I am stuck on the first page 'Set Location URL'. Does anyone know how I find this location please. Sorry if I am being dumb.

    Alan

    It is the location of your website where it will look to find the files it requires to produce the report i.e. http:/mywebsite.com/

    I am sure I am missing something obvious but I am very new to this. Where do I find the 'mywebsite' but of the URL? Is this something that is set up by Cumulus or Aercus or myself?

    If you didn't set up Cumulus to upload to a website with an address, then you won't be able to use the app until you do so.

    Ah thank you.

    I didn't know that.

    I have had a look at the help file
    s on how to create a website for the weather data and it looks quite complicated. But I will persevere.

    thanks again

    I think he's referring to this one:-

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... herstation

    I've got it running on my phone & quite like it, especially the widget on the front screen.

    As soon as I unlock my phone, I see something like this, without launching an app.

    I did have a few issues getting it going properly, but all resolved in another thread, including copies of realtime.xml & sunbird.txt in one of my post.

    Thanks Phil, I will give it a try tomorrow.
    Have to go up to the weather station and change the temp/hum that was burned to prices from a 250W FM transmitter :-(
    Have a nice weekend!

    Hi Gunnar.

    I had Pocket PWS http://android.teszdesign.hu/ running fine on a Samsung S3.

    I bought an S6 at Christmas and have only now tried to set up PWS but it wont work for me.

    I have the realtime txt and xml files in the correct server locations and can see them update.

    The both files have all the contents populated but the display remains 'blanked'

    I have also just tried to set it up on a Nexus 7 with the same result.

    So, sorry my friend, I cant help you at this moment.

    ps. just out of interest my URL is http://www/maghull-scene.co.uk/www/Cumulus/realtime.xml ( the www bit in the middle is good)

    Can anyone else get this data to read please?

    URL for ftp is ftp://maghullscene@maghull-scene.co.uk/ ... altime.xml

    Can u check and get back?

    the correct link is: http://www.maghull-scene.co.uk/Cumulus/realtime.xml

    putting http://www/ means a domain name of www its wrong and no point in even trying it.
