Re: Not uploading HTML files

Now that you have active mode turned off, can you delete the ftplog.txt file, and then leave Cumulus until after another update attempt, and then zip up and attach the ftplog.txt file here, please?

Re: SQL set up parse error

I have only done this for one user, some time ago, but I think I need to create the database before you can do anything. If you send me a private message with your requirements, I'll set it up for you. I won't be able to do it until Monday, probably.

Re: Not uploading HTML files

You've turned on active ftp mode - have you tried the default, passive mode, with active mode turned off?

Re: Consistent Daily Connection Exception

Have I misunderstood something here? Is Cumulus connected to the Vue via Meteobridge? I don't know what that "logger" trace is, but is it showing that Meteobridge is losing the connection to the Vue? If Cumulus is indeed connected via Meteobridge, then it follows that Cumulus will also los...

Re: FTP issue.

I think a few others have seen this. I think that what happens is that when certain types of problem occur with ftp connections, new connections are established, but the old ones are still there, yet to be fully disconnected (which presumably happens after a period has passed). Because of the way th...

Re: Consistent Daily Connection Exception

If it starts happening again, I think the best way to determine what's going on would be to capture a TCP/IP trace at around that time, using something like Wireshark.

Re: CUTags.php not updating

Assuming that the realtime.txt file you refer to is the standard Cumulus realtime.txt, then you don't need that as an extra file, you just enable the appropriate realtime settings. I don't know what Cumulusrealtime.txt is, it's not a standard Cumulus file.

Re: Consistent Daily Connection Exception

Yes, the units are in seconds. If you're not uploading to weatherlink.com, you should leave the setting at zero. I did wonder whether it was a daily time check which was causing the disconnect - this the console itself doing that, you mean? Does the logger/console have a setting to get the time from...

Re: Consistent Daily Connection Exception

Something (possibly the logger itself) is causing the connection to Cumulus to be closed. Do you have the logger uploading to weatherlink.com? If so, you could try turning that off to see if the problem goes away, or experiment with increasing the 'disconnect period' setting.

That's useful, thanks. I did wonder if the problem was specific to certain systems (I think two people have reported the same problem).

Re: Cumulus Toolbox - upload problem

I don't know what settings Toolbox takes from the Cumulus.ini file (but apparently it takes the login details) but assuming it doesn't use any path information, then www/Dayfiledata/dayfile.txt would be the correct remote path. I can see an upload for that file once a day for the last four days, wit...

Re: Cumulus not Connecting.

Presumably you have a USB logger? As it appears to be timing related (sometimes it works, sometimes not, if I understand correctly?) then perhaps the SiLabs drivers haven't finished initialising the virtual port when Cumulus tries to connect, on those occasions when it doesn't work. Can you introduc...

The [Station] section, as mentioned in the FAQ and my earlier reply.

There's a description of the Cumulus.ini file, including its format, in the wiki - http://wiki.sandaysoft.com/a/Cumulus.ini

Re: WU update: An error occurred while sending the request

I would expect that if the system is returning an error, then it hasn't been able to send the request, but that apparently isn't the case. I don't know why restarting Cumulus should cause the problem to go away - perhaps something to do with the messages apparently being spurious.
