Re: Suggested web site hosting offerings

One caution about hosting yourself on a home network -- the XAMPP/LAMP servers are good for development, but may not be sufficiently hardened against miscreants attempting to penetrate your local network. If you open a webserver to the internet, be assured it will be probed for vulnerabilities start...

Re: Forecasts and METAR data will not load no matter what

Some of the scripts may fail with PHP less than 5.5 version.

A check-fetch-times.php?show=info on your site shows

Stream support for https is NOT available but REQUIRED.


You’ll need to update PHP to have the site fully operate.

Re: End of Service for Wunderground API

Re WU-forecast.php, I don't know -- I'll send them a message regarding the API changes. If the suggested Weather.com API is expensive (for hobbyist accesses), then I'll just discontinue the WU-forecast.php script and find some other method to provide international forecasts for the World template.

Re: MeteoAdvisory

D'Oh.. I forgot to update get-meteoalarm-warning-inc.php to use cURL/https .. the old version was HTTP only.

Please try https://saratoga-weather.org/wxtemplate ... p?sce=view and let me know if that fixes the issue. If it does, I'll release for distribution.

buoy-data.php V1.19 released .. use curl/https for www.ndbc.noaa.gov data

Looks like http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov switched to mandatory https access, and the V1.18 script was http-only. The V1.19 script now uses curl for the access via https and has a couple of minor fixes for PHP7+ Download from the script page Thanks to Bob from http://www.ka5zci.com/ for the heads-up! Best...

Re: php error in logs

Don't sweat either of them.
You can always turn off Notice error notifications with a php.ini file change so they don't annoy you. Notice errata are not very important.. only Warning and above are important.
