Re: Problemwith View first unread post Cumulus Realtime.txt Dashboard Template

Thanks, Brian, one more question when you have a moment. I have edited "webcamsmall.php" (see below) hoping to link to my webcam but without success. ******************************************** <style> .webcam{ -webkit-border-radius:4px; -moz-border-radius:4px; -o-border-radius:4px; -ms-b...

Re: Problemwith View first unread post Cumulus Realtime.txt Dashboard Template

Brian thanks for solving my problem via your own website. Just re-read my very confusing post title!!!! Basically, I couldn't get CUMULUS Dashboard CU-X7 to read my 'realtime.txt' file. Brian quickly noted it was an issue with my server not reading the paths correctly. Very quick and effective suppo...

Problemwith View first unread post Cumulus Realtime.txt Dashboard Template

I've downloaded and installed Cumulus Realtime.txt Dashboard Template to try. I think I've followed all the instructions and I double checked I'm pointing it the setup to the active realtime.txt file in Cumulus. The dashboard has installed but in it failing to read the data fro realtime.txt. Any sug...

Re: Cumulus will not start......................

Silly me. I've had it running for nearly two weeks faultlessly. It completely slipped my mind to start as Administrator! Yes, that was the reason Steve!

Updating from Cumulus 1 to CumulusMX

After months of my favourite weather station software getting less and less reliable and not finding an answer, I decided it was time to leave Cumulus 1.9 & take the plunge with MX or find something else. Well, it has been an up and down week as I move the data from June 2009 to MX followed by r...

Re: Interface does not update.

Solved it. I was using "localhost:8998" till things went wrong. I have changed "localhost" to the computer's IP address. And data appears on the screen.

Interface does not update.

I'm restating my problem as I thought the issue was affecting my data collection and my website when I posted this morning. In fact, Cumulus continues to run successfully collecting data from my weather station and uploading to my website. However, the interface on my computer is not displaying info...

Re: Upgraded to CumulusMX and banner has stopped showing

Just set "$SITE['usettf'] = "yes"; # Set to No to use default fonts" to "no" and they are back!

Upgraded to CumulusMX and banner has stopped showing

As you can see below I use 'Banner' as a signature with Cumulus. I've just upgraded to CumulusMX and moved "banner.php" into my weather main directory but it does not appear to be reading the "realtime.txt" All I'm getting is a blank box that links to the revised website.

Re: Cumulus 1 Freezes - revisited!

Thanks for the responses and the advice. Unfortunately most of your suggestions I seem to have tried with no success. However, CumulusMX soldiers on and has now been running over 48 hours without a hitch, so it look like that is the way to go. a steep learning curve I fear! I've just replaced my web...

Cumulus 1 Freezes - revisited!

Here I am again with my old chestnut. Cumulus 1 on a Windows 10 machine keeps freezing. It all seems to have start months ago. I seem to have tried everything - at least I think I have. It is intermittent but the longest it manages to run without crashing is about 6 hours. Often I re-starting five o...

Re: Cumulus ! Freezing - revisited

.................. and, of course, the file ends when Cumulus 'freezes'! I must admit it has been worse since I change to the Oregan weather station, and we seem to have eliminated the PC end (apart from settings maybe), so I suppose the next things to look at has to be the USB connection. I'll see ...
