Re: time format

Cumulus MX data is forwards compatible with Cumulus 1, but not backwards compatible. If you want to port data from MX to 1.9.4 you will have some work to do. MX now uses ISO format for the dates in the ini files. You'll need to convert them all to the format shown that's understood by your system. I...

Re: Longest Dry Run curiosity

I'm pretty sure that the Cumulus default of 0.2mm corresponds to the official definition of a dry day as defined by the Met Office and/or the WMO, or at least it did at the time I wrote the code. See this page, for example: https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/climatechange/science/monitoring/ukcp09/availab...

Re: Accessing my C MX weather via WAN/internet

You can host your web site on your Pi, that isn't a problem (with the right security measures), but exposing the MX user interface to the world is not a good idea.

Re: Very strange rainfall figures

Looks like your rainfall counter increased suddenly, and then perhaps returned to normal. Cumulus tries to filter out such aberrances, but it depends on exactly what happened. There's information in the FAQ and wiki about correcting rainfall, which also applies to MX, except that MX doesn't have mos...

Re: Logging of custom HTTP

The 'minutes' and 'rollover' responses are logged to the diags file if you turn on debug logging.

I don't believe that's possible, given that the 'web server' built into MX is very simple.

Re: wmr 200 problem with datalogger

Trying to recover old logger data by changing the timestamp in today.ini is generally not useful for the WMR200 because of the way it works, there is no way to ask for specific data, it just sends what it has. A situation where this approach might be useful would be where the logger does have the da...

Re: Met Office WOW not working

WOW (and WU) create the IDs when you register your station. I can't remember how you find them if you don't know them (and the systems have probably changed considerably since I last used them).

Re: FTP problem

You're getting timeouts, that's all it's possible to say from the information available to Cumulus. Often, using active ftp mode when it's not required will cause this (because the packets can't get through the firewalls), but if you've tried unsetting that, I don't know what else to suggest.

Re: wmr 200 problem with datalogger

There's one diags file for each time you start Cumulus. It contains information about settings, what archive data was downloaded from the station, and other information useful for diagnosing problems.

Re: wmr 200 problem with datalogger

Yes - or clearing the logger might do it. Perhaps set the logging interval again (on the console).

Re: wmr 200 problem with datalogger

Your station isn't sending the required archive data when Cumulus starts up. You could try resetting it.

Re: wmr 200 problem with datalogger

If you zip up the diags folder and attach it to a reply in this thread, I'll take a look.
