Scripts not running correctly
« on: March 19, 2011, 06:07:48 PM »
I am running VWS, Vantage PRO2, trying to install and test WeatherFlash.  I've installed all the files per the instructions. My server is runng PHP 4.4.  I have the PHP4 scripts installed.

I can access the flash page and it loads and at the bottom of the page, the time is updating every two seconds so VWS is connected and i have confirmed that the /Data directory is getting the wflash.txt files. the permissions show up as 'rw-r--r--'.  The little lights to the left of the data/time show as 'red' and 'blank'.

I can log into the setup page using the default Ambient/User password.  However, none of the changes i make on that page set. I can neither reset the password or have any changes to the page (new gauges etc) stick.  When i "lock" , nothing gets saved and the original blank page then shows up.

I've read through all of the various posts and i don't see what's going on.  Can anyone please help? I've sent email to meteorologica but nothing back yet from them.

Try changing all permissions to 705 rwx---r-x  That is what I use and it works.

Good old trial and error....i changed all the permissions on the files in all the directories running WF to 0707 and that got it working.  As you said, it was a permission issue.  All working now.

Many thanks

Steve,

The only one that needs to be checked is the active server page box.  If you want to have the files saved on your hard drive then check the Local File Location.
