testtags.php upload problem
« on: February 08, 2017, 07:45:29 PM »
I am in the process of switching from VWS to Weather Dispaly and using the Saratoga Templates. I am just in the beginning stages and have downloaded the texttags.txt file and have followed the instructions to create the texttags.php file and upload instructions.

The texttags.php file is created and updated, but does not appear to upload to my site. I have been able to upload clientraw.txt , et al with no issues.

My uploads go to a sub-directory called weather2 and the clientraw files are going there no problem and I do have the steel gauges working.

Looking for suggestions to upload the texttags.php file and where to troubleshoot.

Thank you,

John

if you are using the customise internet and file creation setup
then make sure to also set to upload the needed file there...switch on and set the times to upload (and check the remote file name is correct there)
there is a youtube video on how to use the customise internet and file creation setup

also check what shows in the ftplogfull.txt file
one other thing to check is to make sure the main switch is on the connections setup in the ftp/internet setup and you have set there to use WD ftpupd.exe (default setting)

OK, it appears the instructions are older than the version of WD that I have. I set that up per the video. It only works if I say update now. It will not auto update, I have it set for 5 min updates

The only thing showing in ftplogfull.txt file is an upload of my zone forecast. I think that means download from NOAA, but I am not sure. I did not set up an upload that I know of for the zone forecast.

This software is well above my paygrade, but working through it!!

Thanks for the suggestions

Hi
is the switch on in the upload times and times set to upload?
and did you check the main internet switch?
you could always email/PM me your settings files worse comes to worse and I can check them

I now have my testtags.php file uploading every 10 minutes. When I manually uploaded the file, I was able to view the file on my website, but when it is automatically uploading I now just get a blank page.

Is there some type of permission I need to change?
