 Hi,

its been a long time since I have been on here as VWS has been plodding along nicely with WU working fine.

But ftp'ing has become a problem again. We have Image Salsa working fine still and am wondering whether to use that to send the jpegs.

I feel like a change of software might be on the cards, but very reluctant after 15 years of good service.

looking at the server, some of the VWS files have 0 bytes, so I wonder what the cause of that could be?

Also it seems to keep saying "downloading metar data" each time I log onto it, I wonder if I need to clear out the database, there is tons of (unused) stuff on there after all these years

David,
 I use VWS and have been for centuries ( least it feels that long)... Those jpegs with zero length may be jpegs that you no longer have on your main VWS form/screen and are no longer updated...

I ran vWS for 7 years, but eventually switched to Meteotemplate. I have to Davis Vantage Pro 2s at different locations. Each are connected to a Raspberry PI computer. They have become maintenance free stations now. I wouldn’t ever go back to VWS.

Thanks for replies,

make sure you have a column set in windows folder option to show modified time/date stamp
otherwise its showing create time (very first create time)

Thanks for all the replies, I am trying Weatherlink as a temporary fix till I get time to spend on Reconfiguring VWS.

It has run for 4 days without a hitch.

it is working through a screen grabbing system we have on image salsa, a good system, but far too complicated:

I use FLING to upload all the VWS data... I do not use any VWS imagery, or the VWS site templates... instead drive the data to the Sawratoga Templates... .. but years ago began using FLING to take the FTP load from VWS.. using this method allows the data on site to be 'virtual' real time, or as rapidly as t parameters update between VUE and VWS.,.,. I only use Weatherlink for VUE configuratio9n and initiasl calibgration,... other config and calibrations done through VWS  Weather Cam still uploads and live stream done through Webcam 7 Pro ... on some installs,(Win 10???)   Fling can abuse the Paging file size, and stop working, so I make it a point to restart FLING once in awhile to clear that.... need to check for another Fling update I suppose... :oops: ... also, if you check my site, you'll see some things aren't working or aren't working correctly, as I attempt to upgrade and revamp some stuff, and overcome some hardware issues over the last couple of months... arrrrgh... getting too old for this...
