Re: Connection issue

Easyweather (like Cumulus and most other software) will catch up with data it has missed while not running, so will appear up to date anyway. You could perhaps reboot your PC and run Cumulus before anything else, if you haven't already done that, to make sure EW isn't leaving something in a funny st...

Re: Connection issue

Cumulus is getting data from the station that it can't make any sense of. This can happen if you have other software connected at the same time as Cumulus, but you say that isn't the case. The only suggestion I can think of is that you try a full reset of the station (remove batteries and USB cable ...

Re: Connection issue

If you zip up the diags folder and attach it to a reply in this thread, I’ll take a look. Can you confirm that you don’t have any other software connected to the station at the same time that you are trying to connect using Cumulus?

Re: "dayfile.txt" is not updating

The diags file is unlikely to help, all Cumulus knows is that it can’t write to the file. A likely culprit is antivirus software or similar.

Re: Twitter problem with Cumulus v1.9.4 (1099)

Twitter changed their authentication method again, and Cumulus can no longer obtain the authentication tokens. Even if you copied the cumulus.ini file containing the tokens to the new PC, it is possible that they won’t work on that machine - I don’t know.

Can you run Weatherlink, and see if that can connect to the station?

Re: CumulusMX backend crashes if weather station's USB is unplugged

It’s unlikely that I’ll ever do any changes to the MX user interface. One of the reasons for doing it the way it’s done (using HTML and JavaScript) is that it can be modified and tailored without any changes from me. I will however look at adding items to the API if they are not already there, to fa...

Re: FTP upload error

You are using http://www.wansteadweather.co.uk for the ftp (host) server name, which does not resolve to the ip address in your provider’s information. They have told you to use ftp.wansteadweather.co.uk, which does resolve to that address. I don’t know whether http://www.wansteadweather.co.uk shoul...

Re: CumulusMX error

I can’t look at your diags files myself at the moment (away from home in the motorhome). But you can easily look yourself and see if there is an error message at the appropriate time. I suspect that MX isn’t actually involved and your problem is in your system somewhere. The file you mention is your...

Re: Cumulus connecting to remote site on the internet?

If you have uploads to those sites configured, then those are the most likely candidates (in particular WU and WOW). Uploads to WU, PWS, and WOW all use port 80. The obvious way to find out is to turn off uploads to those sites one at a time.

Sorry, no idea unless there is something relevant in the MXdiags file at that time.

Re: Add Extra Temp Value to Interface Page

Shouldn’t need to do that conversion, as it can be used in json format in this case. It’s simply the call to get the data using the URL that’s needed, and I just can’t remember how it’s done - probably uses ajax.
