Yes, I am able top run easyweathersetup.php just fine, change passwords and variables. I can run menu.php and get back text. But index.php is error 500 and doesn't return anything to the browser.

might be worth checking phpinfo if you have one setup on the server . need to cross check if some options are enabled. dump a print screen of the what the phpinfo returns

create a file called phpinfo.php

code simply add and save then enter phpinfo.php in the browser

<?php

// weather34 simple standard Show all information //
phpinfo();

?>

Have you checked permissions and ownership?

Set all your file and folder permissions in you web root folder to recusive 775, ownership to your pi login name and group to www-data.

I use Webmin on my pi which makes all this very easy. It is an open source GUI web management tool similar to Control Panel which amongst othe things will help to set your permissions etc very easily. Find them at webmin.com

While I was never able to get the weather34 package running on my Raspberry which runs Weewx, I was able to modify Weewx and the Weather 34 files enough to create a new data source from US Geological site to get lake level data and then hijack the Rainfall screen and create 3 trend reports. Re-order the screen a bit and now I have this working at weather.jrdretreat.com. This is running on a micro EC2 instance now and pumping data up top the server using SFTP scripts.

hello

looks good for those wanting to shift things around manually its all in the updater.php :-)

anyway onwards to whats coming up something small but something significant and your server and host will love you to bits :-)

so the strive to make this visually good and an awesome user experience i re wrote last week and finished this week from the ground up in pure css no jquery ! two of the modules dependant on a large heavy jquery library with in the file combi.js . subsequently the combi.js is no longer required eliminating a hefty library to be used
thats a 800KB saving on page load see screenshot below. i will release this towards end of the month you can see it working at https://weather34.com

whilst it has some visual change but it still replicates a barometer and daylight information and again it is pure css !! no jquery so the main page loads up and only needs a 87kb part of jquery and the rest only gets called when needed.. thats a less than 260kb fully loaded page !!! yep less than 260kb.

most modules are now using only css ... wind direction,rainfall,temperature,barometer,daylight,moonphase,indoor + other top modules... brian

hello Vaggos

hopefully sometime next week i will release I just rewrote the menu(looks and functions almost identical to current) this evening so thats now also just pure css and less the 2kb !! overall a substantial page load and user experience gain ... to get any website at sub 500kb is impressive but to get it to sub 250kb shows you the power of css when you put your mind to it.. ..

no change to zamcron.php so you should be ok ... which offset do you use out of curiosity ? i use -10 and its spot on it oredicted gale force winds for today yesterday i was a bit skeptical and below and hold this afternoon the wind hit 64kmh ! it really is incredibly accurate at times.

Brian. It looks like you've been very busy of late. Well done, must say the optimizations you are doing are great. Can wait for this new one to do my own tests.

I've noticed my load times are approx 5.5-6 seconds when doing gtmetrix tests, the vast majotiry of which is the WU poll : wuupdate.php which can take approx 4.8-5.5 seconds to complete.

is there any code that could be used to check the date of the last poll and if it was within a certain time frame (maybe listed in settings1.txt 30-60 minutes perhaps) then the poll is ignored and read from the cached txt files? Just a thought.

Thanks again for the template updates!
Regards Simon
