Oh, at the time of the post it was disabled. That's what annoys me, WU disables it and enables, when I email them, they talk about the temperatures being too high or something while they aren't actually. There are worser stations out there, but at the moment there's one that's disabled still I think. This is all automatic I guess, or maybe I should just live with it :lol:

Hi Mick
In Cumulus Internet settings; tick the catch up box for the sites you send data to, this will update the sites with recent data if you have had cumulus switched off for a while, but in the situation where it has failed to upload for whatever reason, it won’t work, so… what I do is:

Close Cumulus, go to the C:\cumulus\backup folder and select a backup folder which precedes the point in time where the data stopped uploading; copy all the files from that folder into the Cumulus\Data folder, over writing all (you could back them up first just in case there’s a problem) then re-start Cumulus.

It will take quite a long time to download all the data from the console, the further back it time you go the longer it will take.
Once downloaded you will see the catch up indicator flashing this also takes for ever.

One important thing to remember is to Un tick the catch up for PWS before you close Cumulus otherwise it will scramble your data on the PWS site, re tick it after catch up has finished.

If running 24/7 it’s a good idea to re start Cumulus once a week so that you never have to download more than a weeks worth of data, and don’t forget you can only retrieve what is stored in the console.


I tried this method to upload data from one week of downtime but it didn't work for me. Checked the dayfile and i have no entries for 6 days hence no uploads to Wunderground. I'm wondering am i doing something wrong. I copied a data backup from Jan 5th about one hour before my PC crashed. I replaced the files from that folder and placed them in the data folder and let Cumulus do its thing but still no updates. Any help would be appreciated.

Mick

It would take a very long time to do 8 days worth of WU uploads - did you leave it long enough? Or are you saying that Cumulus itself didn't get the missing data - that you ended up with six days missing from dayfile.txt after you started it?

You shouldn't have needed to use any backup files; as I told you in the other thread, Cumulus would just have carried on from where it had got to before your PC crashed without any intervention, assuming the data was available in the station. If you zip up the diags folder and attach it, I'll take a look, but it would probably be better to start a new thread.

So the heat is back and I'm suffering from WU again, my station has been banned off the maps (again?!) just because the NE winds have warmed up my station for 3ºC compared to what it was, and because a station in the mount nearby, badly located, is 5 degrees below me... It's really aggrivating really, wish there was a way to convince them it's right.

Luckily I also got my own website and the station on PWSWeather.

Weatherunderground was purchased by Weather Channel not too long ago.

That said lately their moon phase's reporting is a bit off.

Pete, I just checked my pages ('[link removed]') on Weather Underground including the '[link removed]' page and the moon information is accurate.

Might there be something wrong with the script you are using to download the data from Weather Underground... :(

Please, do not start anything with that statement - rumours already abound in other forums based on unfounded rumours - true, the Weather Channel Companies (TWCC) have purchased Weather Underground, but no one, not even Alan Steremberg, the president of Weather Underground, have been let go - it is just operations as usual for all the employees of Weather Underground - the Weather Channel needs the employees of Weather Underground a lot more than the employees of Weather Underground need the Weather Channel. :roll:

Yup; issues relate to API/XML feeds.

Hi,

Hopefully it was just a hiccup. Are you using the Planner feature at the same time you're looking at Astronomy data? There seems to be a bug with Planner and Astronomy at the same time which gives bad moon information.

Thanks,
Customer Service

Ticket Details
===================
Ticket ID: KWV-XXXXXX
Category: API/XML Feeds


My post/weathercam upload is related to a problem ticket. The overlay text is part one of my jest relating to an MTR for the above ticket number.

I have never had nor have any intentions to starting any rumors.

The aquisition of WUN and issue relating to the API/XML feeds is just plan fact; no malfeasance intended.
