Cumulus1 how to enter data

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.

Have you supplied the FULL correct serial device name? Have you looked at the FAQ as I suggested, where you would see the following?

"Serial device names on Linux are not COM0 etc as in Windows. You need to specify something like /dev/ttyUSB0 - do a dmesg at a command line prompt and look for the actual device name from your adapter. If dmesg says your cp210x converter (as on Davis stations) is attached to ttyUSB0, for example, you need to put /dev/ttyUSB0 for the serial port name in MX. "

I posted this earlier:

I have put USB0 as the Davies connection serial port name, but still no data. When I run the CumulusMX program it says :
Unable to connect to station Cumulus running at: http://*:8998/

Also as you suggested, I have now got /dev/ttyUSB0 and it is now connected.

Actually you are the first person to tell me that.
Thanks
