create the site Cumulusutils in LOCAL PAGE

Post by courtil »

Hello everyone,

I have been using the Cumulusutils script for some time with satisfaction.
I would now like to create the site in LOCAL PAGE as indicated in the documentation, but I cannot extract the data to launch this novelty ...
Here is the script used:
http: //localhost/Cumulusutils/cumulusutils.exe
that does not give anything, no index or any other file extracted using this command ...
Can you tell me a little more.
Thank you for your information
cordially

Unfortunately I won't be available today apart for some short notes. Probably tomorrow afternoon/evening.
Maybe some of the other users can respond?

Bonjour Michel,

First, like Laurent, I don't recall I said anything in the documentation about using cumulusutils on localhost.
CumulusUtils is designed to create a website (modules) and as such that website can be anywhere so it should be able to be on your localhost as well.

BUT:
  • That would require your localhost (which thus MUST be your Cumulus machine otherwise you cannot run CumulusUtils) to have a general webserver (e.g. Apache) installed. I don't know What machine you run but it could be done on an RPi and on a PC. You would have to dive into that.
  • And for the file transfers you would need FTP-server to be active (which at least on the RPi I believe is not standard) to accept the files. If this is not the case you would have to copy the files manually to your webserver destination directory (or activate the FTP).
  • Be aware that if you have no FTP-server operational, you have to set the DoUploadFTP parameter to FALSE. Run CumulusUtils in the Cumulus directory and look for the output in the utils directory.
That should be it and you no doubt will find the output files.

Can you share what you want to achieve with with CumulusUtils on localhost?

Hello everyone.

Thank you for your respective answers.

Installing my site locally allows me to make modifications or additions without making ftp access to my site:

https://lecourtilauxepines.eu/index.php

Especially since it is very long to access.

In LOCAL I simply transfer the UTILS directory created on CUMULUSMX to the site opened under localhost, it works well.

If the creation of the site from Cumulusutils.exe in LOCAL is not possible, give me the creation mode towards the remote site because I cannot manage to open Cumulusutils.exe in remote.

THANK YOU again for your answer Hans.
cordially
Michel says Courtil.

I'll PM you and we'll try in French. I do not fully understand what the problem is.

Bonjour à tous.

Merci pour vos réponses respectives.

L'installation de mon site localement me permet de faire des modifications ou des ajouts sans avoir accès ftp à mon site:

https://lecourtilauxepines.eu/index.php

D'autant plus qu'il est très long d'accès.

En LOCAL je transfère simplement le répertoire UTILS créé sur CUMULUSMX vers le site ouvert sous localhost, ça marche bien.

Si la création du site à partir de Cumulusutils.exe en LOCAL n'est pas possible, donnez-moi le mode de création vers le site distant car je n'arrive pas à ouvrir Cumulusutils.exe à distance.

MERCI encore pour votre réponse Hans.
Cordialement
Michel dit Courtil.

Re,

C'est ce passage là que je ne comprends pas:

**************************************************************************
The Website Generator
The Website commandline parameter activates the Website Generator and automatically implies all other modules. Only the System Info Page needs to be run separately if you wish to have updated data on the site. If you are happy with once per day information, there is no need to run additional modules. Just run cumulusutils with the Website argument once per day (more often is of course possible).
The Website Generator Installation
Unzip the distribution file in the utils directory under the CumulusMX directory, if that directory does not exist, create it (name must be in minuscules). Overwrite any existing file. If you are using Cumulus 1, continue in a similar way and create the utils subdirectory under the Cumulus 1 directory. In the following I will use the word Cumulus for both versions. Note that Cumulus 1 does not support the json data files for the Cumulus-graphs.
Move cumulusutils.exe to the Cumulus-directory.
First Time
If this is the first time you run cumulusutils, there is no ini file so, go to the Cumulus directory and run:
cumulusutils.exe Website

**********************************************************************
là est la clef de mon problème

Merci
