Month/Year RAIN dates are incorrect

Post by K1JLC » Wed 25 Mar 2020 3:21 pm

I've had a Cumulus station running for several years successfully. I recently installed the CumulusMX 3.0.0 b3048. I copied the data folder and cumulus.ini file over from Cumulus version. It came up without a problem.
Now it incorrectly show month/year rain amount . It now displays the following:
Rain this Month 45.73,
Rain This Year 91.13

Can't figure out where to correct this. Any assistance would be appreciated.

If you upgrade to latest release (3070) then there are editors that will sort that out for you.

now when I select the Dayfile viewer I receive this error:
DataTables warning: table id=dayfile - Invalid JSON response. For more information about this error, please see http://datatables.net/tn/1

tried to follow the "please see" link but not understanding it. (I apologize for lack of dev knowledge) Aslo, thanks for your response earlier.

Not sure why you are looking at the dayfile as all the Editors are under the drop-down called Edit.

But assuming that all the other screens in the CumulusMX are working I think you may have a fault in the dayfile.

You can confirm this by looking at the latest .txt file in MXdiags. If a fault has been found it will tell you in there with line number where the fault occurred. You then need to use a good .txt editor like Notepad++ or my personal choice Notetab Pro ( https://www.notetab.com/notetab-pro ) and fix the problem. Do not use the standard .txt editors like Notepad as they have a nasty habit of doing other things to the file when you save it.

Obviously this has to be done with CumulsMX closed so once you have completed it load up CumulusMX and hopefully the error should have disappeared and you may also find your rainfall figures have miraculously fixed themselves as well.

Thanks for the information. Apparently it resolved itself overnight. Working on how to configure the daily/monthly/annual numbers. I have data from 2019 but have not added as yet. Thanks for your assistance David. (I like the upgraded Cumulus MX 3.4.6 b3070)
