Re: PHP Web 'viewer' for Cumulus NOAA Style reports

I've been working my way through the instructions kindly provided by beteljuice to get NOAA reports available on my website.

I've hit a brick wall and I'm sure it's path related but for the life of me I cannot see where the problem lies.

This is the error being reported on my server:-

[12-Dec-2011 20:01:36] PHP Warning: opendir(./NOAA-reports) [<a href='function.opendir'>function.opendir</a>]: failed to open dir: No such file or directory in /home/admin4/public_html/NOAA-reports/NOAA-reports.php on line 195

And here is the page I've created:- http://www.cheadlehulmeweather.co.uk/NOAA.php

Neither of the two reports (Dec or 2011) will display even though they exist in the NOAA-reports subfolder under my root public_html.

In public_html/NOAA-reports I have:-
NOAA-reports.php
noaarep.css
NOAAMO1211.txt
NOAAYR2011.txt

In public_html I have:-
NOAAT.php
NOAA.php
weatherstyle.css

Any help gratefully appreciated.
Cheers,
Ray, Cheshire.

I'd suggest you change the directory specification from

./NOAA-reports

to

./NOAA-reports/

and see if that fixes the issue.

Best regards,
Ken

Thanks Ken. I think that has fixed one problem but I appear to have another related to my location adapted for England.

The error log is now complaining about line 433:-

[12-Dec-2011 21:19:07] PHP Warning: preg_replace() [<a href='function.preg-replace'>function.preg-replace</a>]: Delimiter must not be alphanumeric or backslash in /home/admin4/public_html/NOAA-reports.php on line 433

That line is as follows:-
$rpt = preg_replace('State: Cheshire', 'County: Cheshire Country: UK', $rpt, 1);
Cheers,
Ray, Cheshire.

I reverted to the standard piece of code for the location and it seems to have fixed the problem.

http://www.cheadlehulmeweather.co.uk/NOAA.php

One last question. How do I generate files for all the months I have data for? Had a look in the Help but nothing jumped out at me.
Cheers,

Hi Ray,

The preg_replace would need to have a delimiter in the regex on the first argument like:

$rpt = preg_replace('/State: Cheshire/i', 'County: Cheshire Country: UK', $rpt, 1);

then it would execute correctly.

Best regards,
Ken

Glad the spec on the directory fixed the issue.

In the Cumulus, View, NOAA Monthly Report (and NOAA Yearly Report) there's an option at the bottom of the window to specify the Month/Year (or just Year) for the report. Select 'Update Report' then you can do a "Save" selecting ANSI file type.

Repeat for your missing reports, then manually upload the historical file(s) to your NOAA-reports/ directory.

Best regards,
Ken

Hi Ken,

Thanks for your help with both questions. Given the location code works I'll leave that alone for now.

Regarding choosing another month/year for NOAA data I don't see an option at the bottom of that window. I'm running Cumulus on a netbook with a 1024*600 resolution. Might that be the reason?

Steve, should I be able to see the option at the bottom of that window to generate data for another period?
Cheers,
Ray, Cheshire.

Probably, can you remote desktop into your netbook and specify a larger desktop size?

It is created when you launch NOAA.php. It should then be uploaded to the NOAA-Reports folder on your server.

That will display the climate reports but if you want a webpage with the same look and feel as your other pages that's where NOAA.php comes in. http://www.cheadlehulmeweather.co.uk/NOAA.php

I just took the vanilla NOAA-reports.php and uploaded it to my web-server.
And this is what I get: http://www.ibtest.dk/vejr/NOAA-reports.php
It doesn't look as nice as Beteljuice's sample display....
