Forecasts and METAR data will not load no matter what

Postby flyingvranch » Mon Sep 10, 2018 6:50 pm

I am setting up a new site. I have everything covered except that I cannot get the NWS point forecasts or any METAR data to load. I have tried several combos of web addresses in the settings and advforecast2 scripts but nothing will work.
For reference ; my website http://budbrinkley.com/Weather/index.php
Local Point forcast that I want to load https://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lat=30.707377500000064&lon=-95.54891219999996&unit=0&lg=english&FcstType=text&TextType=2
Local Metar- KUTS

Also the moon pahse does not work.
Any help would be very much appreciated!
Thanks!
Bud

do you have the correct Permissions on the web folders?

Please check this link out and test your PHP too.

http://saratoga-weather.org/scripts.php#PHPTest

your PHP version 5.3.29 is old too, can you update it?

PHP 5.3.29 is what I got when I did the test. I have no way of updating it.

Some of the scripts may fail with PHP less than 5.5 version.

A check-fetch-times.php?show=info on your site shows

Stream support for https is NOT available but REQUIRED.


You’ll need to update PHP to have the site fully operate.
