Re: am i missing somthing or what?

You don't need to rebuild the dayfile to correct the current number of days since it last rained, and rebuilding dayfile.txt definitely doesn't overwrite today.ini, so I have no idea what you're doing wrong. What do you mean by "this was back in my 2018"?

Re: am i missing somthing or what?

The current figure for the number of days since it last rained before today (consecutive dry days) is held in today.ini as I posted above.

Which figure exactly are you trying to alter?

ConsecutiveDryDays

I think you mean "Days since it last rained", not "Days since last dry day", unless you've had a completely different summer there to everyone else in Europe.

Re: Froggit WH3000SE

Not that I can think of. Even if there's a way of reading the data from a PC, it's not supported by Cumulus. The only way would be as described in the wiki for unsupported stations - if you can create data in the easyweather.dat format.

Re: Add Extra Temp Value to Interface Page

It's possible, but you'll need to do a bit of work, and it will require some javascript knowledge. If you look at extrasensors.js, you'll see that it gets the extra temperature data with a call to api/extra/temp.json - if you put http://localhost:8998/api/extra/temp.json into your browser (or use th...

Re: Froggit WH3000SE

From its appearance and description, almost certainly not compatible. Doesn't even seem to have PC connectivity?

Re: CumulusMX error

I can't see anything different between your run from last week and the runs from today, so I can't say why you can't see anything on the web interface. Different browser, perhaps? Are there any errors in the browser's developer console?

Re: Cumulus MX on Ubuntu 18.04

Have you actually installed the mono-complete package, as in the MX installation instructions? And step 2 on the page that you linked to, says that installing mono-complete should cover most cases of 'assembly not found' errors? If you have installed mono-complete, then I'm afraid I have no other su...

Re: today's rain: how to correct?

Actually, perhaps you could change it while Cumulus is running - if you could get your script to do the calls on the MX user interface which are invoked by the rain editor facility. If you want to try, you could look at the data exchange between the browser and MX using the developer console in the ...

Re: today's rain: how to correct?

You can't change it externally while Cumulus is running. And I don't know how you would work out what to change it to before Cumulus has run. The information is held in today.ini, so that's easy to change - the description of the file and how the rainfall counters work is in the wiki. Knowing what t...

Re: CumulusMX error

You seem to be concatenating the diags files into a single file, and they're in reverse chronological order or something. Makes them very difficult to look at! There only seem to be files from today. I wanted to look at older files and compare them with the recent ones, to see what has changed regar...

Re: CumulusMX error

Sorry, I can't extract the files from that archive on my PC. But from that message, it looks like your system settings have changed, i.e. you are now running under a different locale with different settings, so existing data formats aren't recognised.

If you zip up the MXdiags folder and attach it to a reply, I'll take a look.

Re: Google map message on website

Looks good from here. I noticed it was pointing to the wrong place (for me) before but didn't say anything as I thought you were still testing before putting in your actual location!
