I was curious if it might be possible to read data from a 2nd testtags file? I am hosting a school website in a sub directory of my website. That station has soil and leaf monitoring sensors and would like to display the soil data on my daculaweather site.

I'm thinking there is no way without some creative script to pull the specific data from the 2nd testtags file, but just thought I'd ask. :-)

It's going to be a problem while you use the same testtags.txt template since the variable names are all the same, and the last testtags.php include() will overwrite all the prior ones.

One approach is to add a smaller testtags.txt template to the other system, delete all the variables you don't want, and rename the ones you do want (if they interfere with existing variable names) -- then the new-named variables would be available without interference.
