Hi,

I've just noticed that my NOAA report on my website has not moved on to November.
i.e. not showing any data nor giving me the (NOV) month button at the top to click on.

can someone confirm if Cumulus generates and uploads the new month automatically
or do I need to generate each new month myself?

If Cumulus does not automatically generate and upload, will this be added into a
future Cumulus update?

It is a feature built into 1.9.2 (which I note you are using) and the parameters are under Configuration on the Cumulus control panel "NOAA Setup". I can confirm that mine is working automatically and generates the reports correctly.

Perhaps you had an ftp problem on the first upload after midnight. Did the report get created in the reports folder on your PC?

hmm,

I have just looked in my C:\Cumulus\Reports folder and can see that there is a txt file.
NOAAM01111.txt <--- which is the November report file, so it is logging it ok.

It looks like the files didnt get copied onto my server?

Could someone confirm what settings I need to have selected to have this
done automatically, just so I can check I have it all set up OK.

The only thing I can think off why it is not on my server is perhaps my internet connection
was down, when Cumulus went to upload the files and therefore they did not get coppied?


These are my settings on Cumulus;

Your settings look fine and if during October it was updating daily then you have them set right. Like Steve mentions, your FTP may have misfunctioned when the auto FTP was attempted.

Yup I guess it must have been a problem with the FTP upload.

I have manually copied them over to my server so hopefully
it will work ok from now on.

Thanks

I just dropped the script on my web server, I had to comment out the setting of the TZ variable (line 159) as the server did not like that, but I get a couple of errors which seem to relate to the non-existent (yet) December 11 report...?

Notice: Undefined index: NOAAMO1211.txt in C:\xampp\htdocs\weather\NOAA-reports.php on line 301
Notice: Undefined offset: 13 in C:\xampp\htdocs\weather\NOAA-reports.php on line 325

I think it's because your error reporting is at twitch level (insisting variables are declared up front and not dynamically)

Try this please:
NOAA-reports.zip

I don't understand why your TZ failed - works on PHP 4.5 up :?

Edit: I see that you've edited out //putenv("TZ=$ourTZ");
Does it work if you use 'old' style declaration ?

Hi beteljuice, just the same with that version :(
Notice that if you select a year, then an additional error is displayed

Changing line 302 to:

Code: Select all

if (array_key_exists($testfile, $filesfound)) {

fixes that problem, trying to figure out which index is going out of bounds at line 326...

Edit: Got it, in the month for loop $m is incremented before the range check, so when the loop exits $m=13
change line 326 to:

Code: Select all

if($y != $first_year) { $nav_build[$y]['months'][$m-1] .= "<br />\n";}
and that fixes it.

And finally changed 367-371 to:

Code: Select all

         if (array_key_exists($testfile, $filesfound)) {
            $advisory = "<br /><b>Report for $yr ";
            if ($mo) {$advisory .= $months[$mo];}
            $advisory .= "</b>\n";
            $rpt = implode("",file("$NOAAdir/$testfile"));

Oh, and the putenv error? I run in Safe Mode, so
In Safe Mode, the user may only alter environment variables whose names begin with the prefixes supplied by this directive. By default, users will only be able to set environment variables that begin with PHP_

Cheers Mark, I'll check that out and update later.

Never used array_key_exists, I'll have to look it up :?

I hadn't either, but looking up on how to trap 'does not exist' errors found it, you cannot pass the missing array member to any of the normal error checking routines because it doesn't exist so the act of passing it causes an error - doh!
