Re: Not Posting on Twitter

It doesn't create a file, it just stores the processed text internally.

Could perhaps be a permissions problem with the Cumulus folder(s).

Re: Weather Underground not updating

WU is saying this: 2018-08-15 19:00:00.904 WU Response: Unauthorized: unauthorized So you're probably supplying an incorrect password or station ID. Make sure you supply your station ID in upper case, and you have the password for your station rather than your WU login. 'Unusual' characters in the s...

Re: Rainfall error. Can't open Cumulus. Can't open Diags

I can't be of much help, I'm afraid, without anything to go on. What happens when you try to start it - any error messages anywhere? Are you sure it isn't already running? Have you tried rebooting your PC?

Re: Gaps in apps.weathercloud plots

Any errors when uploading to weathercloud should get logged to the diags file, and if you turn on debug logging, each update should get logged (unless I'm misremembering).

Re: Rainfall error. Can't open Cumulus. Can't open Diags

The files in the zip you've attached are all very old, so aren't any help. The best thing to do would be to delete all of those files and then start Cumulus. After it's been running for a while, zip up the diags folder and attach it to another post.

Re: Weather Underground not updating

Did you restart MX after enabling WU?

If that doesn't help, turn off rapid fire and turn on debug logging, so that the diags files will show something.

Re: Can CumulusMX catchup

I have changed to logging interval in CumulusMX to that of tha Davies Vantage station, and I have also looked through the FAQ but couldn't see where CumulusMX could be forced to read the Davies logger reading http://wiki.sandaysoft.com/a/FAQ#On_restarting_Cumulus.2C_it_did_not_successfully_read_all...

Re: Can CumulusMX catchup

Yes, it's described in the main Cumulus FAQ. One reason that it may not have been able to download the data would be if you have the Davis logger interval and the Cumulus logging interval set to different values. This is also described in the documentation.

Re: Can CumulusMX catchup

It certainly tries to. If WU won't accept the data at the time, that's a WU issue.

Re: Cumulus1 how to enter data

Have you supplied the FULL correct serial device name? Have you looked at the FAQ as I suggested, where you would see the following? "Serial device names on Linux are not COM0 etc as in Windows. You need to specify something like /dev/ttyUSB0 - do a dmesg at a command line prompt and look for t...

Re: Cumulus1 how to enter data

Serial port names on Linux do not look like 'COM0'. There is information in the MX FAQ about this.

Re: Cumulus1 how to enter data

Cumulus 1 only runs on Windows. Cumulus MX will run on Linux, with Mono installed.
