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.

Re: Cumulus1 how to enter data

You can edit the data files, the formats are in the help and the wiki. There are also facilities in Cumulus 1 for generating the daily summaries in dayfile.txt and the all-time records, once you have entered data into the monthly log files.

Re: Cumulus MX on OSX issues

I suspect that Safari has helpfully unzipped the file for you. So you need to navigate to that folder in the terminal. Might be better to move it rather than leave it on the desktop.

Re: CumulusMX error

Something has happened on your system, Cumulus thinks you only started using it today. You have no data logs. I'm afraid I can't say more than that.

Re: CumulusMX error

If you zip up the mx diags folder and attach it, I'll take a look. There may be something in there which helps.

Re: CumulusMX error

Is it possible that your system settings have changed? In particular something like the decimal separator?

Re: Need to identify web template in use

Forgive me for asking what seems to me to be an obvious question, but why do the owners of the web site not know what they are using on their web site?

Re: Notice for those using MX and making some MySQL changes

It's because it initialises the objects for the 'custom' sql operations without checking that 'enabled' is set, which it does for the 'non custom' ones. I'm not sure why I didn't put the check in, but presumably the component code throws an exception if an invalid port number is supplied.

Re: Cumulus MX on OSX issues

You have to unzip the file, and you have to change to the directory containing the unzipped contents (using the cd command), otherwise the system has no idea where to find the Cumulus executable.

Re: Cumulus MX on OSX issues

This isn't a Cumulus issue, this is presumably a lack of experience on your part with using a terminal window? I'm afraid I can't be a lot of help as it's a long time since I owned a Mac and I can't remember exactly what I did. First of all, where did you put the CumulusMXDist3043.zip file, and how ...

Re: Problems

Yes, the connection between Cumulus and the Davis logger is being lost for some reason. Unfortunately, MX does not currently recover from this.

Re: Problems

The connection to the station is being disconnected (for whatever reason), and MX does not currently cater for this. You say this happens when you close down, but there's no indication in the log that you had initiated a close down?

Re: Rain discrepancy in log and uploads

Probably too late now (so you'll need to edit dayfile.txt if you didn't correct the figure yesterday), but you should set it to the correct value for today, and then restart after the next log entry has been written. Cumulus will then recalculate the annual total. It doesn't matter that the station ...
