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.

Hosting @ Dreamhost

Post by Staffanstorp » Sat 01 Dec 2018 10:45 am

Hi, after the final reminder from Steve, I started to setup a new hosted site at dreamhost.com as suggested. I have followed all the instructions on the wiki. However, I'm not able to get Cumulus to establish the FTP connection to upload files to dreamhost. When doing a webupdate, the popup window keeps saying: Connect Timeout
Checking in the ftplog, the timeout is followed by : FTPRequestDone ftpConnectAsync Errcode = 426 and FTP Connect Error, Error code = 426

I have no problems connecting to dreamhost via filezilla so the credentials are verified.

Some thoughts of what could be the problem (and where the instructions are not fully clear,) are:
1) The initial upload of the Cumulus files to dreamhost may have to be stored in a separate folder on dreamhost? In the picture https://cumuluswiki.wxforum.net/a/File:SiteBefore.png it seems as the files should be transfered to the root but doesn't dreamhost require it to be underneath the user name? In any case, what should be written in the field Directory (if any) on the Internet settings?

2) Could it be related to that dreamhost requires SFTP/port 22 and that the Cumulus application does not support this?

Any tips are highly appreciated as my site is down
/Magnus

Cumulus does not support SFTP. See the wiki https://cumuluswiki.wxforum.net/a/FAQ#H ... FTPS.29.3F

Thanks, that did the trick. Still have some issues with only text being shown but I will investigate this.

Again, thanks!

Usually if you only see text you have not done this step correctly https://cumuluswiki.wxforum.net/a/Simpl ... ulus_1.x.y
