Images can be bypassed. Load them with PHP (will let you load http even on https) and then temporarily save them on your server as https. Works in 99% cases.

I do that but do not even temporaily save the image, i just use
Code: [Select]
header('Content-Type:'.$type);
readfile($file);

You should ask your provider for Lets Encrypt. Its free and works well for our purpose. I have runned it on my own server for months now.

One thing to remember when switch to HTTPS...Every content shown/used on the site (js, css, images etc) need to be in HTTPS, else it fails. Can sometimes be tricky with external content....

I know, the problem is that they dont want to make it free... obviously....

Thanks, Greg.  I'm starting to think the best step is to replace the entire unit.  I'll do what I can first to clean it, but I'm prepared to do a replacement.  Not sure if I want to replace it with another VUE, however.  Perhaps I should upgrade to a better unit -- assuming there are much more reliable ones.

Well, you've had this Vue for 6.7 years.

You could go for a VP2, and then you would have a second console (assuming your Vue console is actually OK).

I would go straight to event viewer and look at the Microsoft error logs for application and system. 

I suggested that earlier, but pcpowernet said:

Did not answer the questions since there is no useful information in the logs

GOOD MORNING

this for anyone who has not already setup the database i have created a two click solution (pretty standard stuff nothing extreme) no need to change or use if oyu are already up
and running .. *one note I should make updated with minor css fixes.the info folder replace two files inside , simply replace moondata.php sunindex.php

Revised 11 October 2017 two click solution

1. once you have added your database username and password to the easysetup panel shown below
2.for now just click save at the bottom we can go back and set all settings shortly
3.now run the file included in the download called createdb.php
4.this will create the database called  "weatherstation" it will also create the table for the template

ID time outsideTemp barometer raintoday UV windgustmph windSpeed radiation dewpoint rainrate direction date timestamp lightning

thats it ! it doesn't get any easier than this and shouldn't deter anyone who little or no experience of database use ! click and run the createdb.php after you have added your database username and password . screenshot of included pdf in download.

Brian,

I see you have been busy updating the template! Quick question. Are they any special instructions for updating? My database has been up and running. I assume all I need to do for updates is to just overwrite with the updated files and re-enter the information in the easyweathersetup. Same procedure that we used on the old template, prior to the SQL version.

Thanks,

CHuck

Wim PM'd me about this thread.  Some time back - I'm on GoDaddy - the NOAA swpc lookups would timeout in both my Saratoga and Leuven sites.  I spent a lot of time with their support about this with no help or resolution.  They flat out refused to escalate the problem,  It appears that NOAA has a number of servers that service the swpc requests,  They're all on different IP's.  When max connections are reached on a particular server, the next connection is routed to a server with a different IP address.

GoDaddy apparently caches the one IP address rather than dynamically looking up the swpc address.  Thus, the connection times out.

I'd hazard a guess that on their lookup servers they must have some sort of white list to indicate that a particular website should again look up the IP address rather than using the cached value.

They kept insisting that there must be something in the code - even with Wim's code check which is as straight forward as one can get.

Calling their tech support is basically a waste of time and energy.

Only if they open it up to non-Acurite systems!

Although I have three VUE consoles, all of my sensors are VP2. (I also have a number of VP2 consoles and Envoys) I am not totally familiar with VUE ISS hardware.
According to Scaled Instruments there was a change in the SIM at Rev G. You will need to confirm what level you have and what replacement hardware you need. Check with Ryan.

I see a flex cable which appears to go to the humidity sensor on one of the versions on his site.




I don't know if this is your version or if that also contains the temperature sensor (I think that it does).

The other version of the SIM doesn't have this flex cable and appears to have the sensor as part of the PCB.

From the cost of these (either one), it actually looks to be a bit cheaper just to get the entire VUE ISS on Scaled Instruments site. Rainmanweather is also a good supplier and has a competitive price. If I were in your situation, I would just get the entire replacement ISS.

thank heavens we have people like you here.



I'll second that. I'd be lost at times without the help.
