How do I get my wx data to upload to my website?
« on: December 21, 2018, 11:09:18 AM »
How do I get my data from my Weatherlink wx station software to upload to my website? I'm using a Davis Vantage Pro2 system with the Weatherlink module. I can see the data on the computer screen, but don't know what I should enter for the "local path" or "remote path" under the internet connections to get it to upload. I would also like to upload to my Wunderground account as well, but my personal website is the primary concern.

Hi Neighbour, well somewhat...

What is your website URL?  How familiar are you with this?  I presume you are not yet on weatherlink.com?

I don't run Weatherlink full time but do periodically  http://www.komokaweather.com/weatherlink/Current_Vantage_Pro.htm.  I can check my settings if you want.

We can call on the phone if that is helpful.

Enjoy,
Paul

What you see on the computer screen and a webpage type upload is really two different things. To upload to your website you really need to design/build a web page (Template) which can incorporate some of the Weatherlink built in functions/images/tags etc plus any addons much like Paul's example which is "traditional" Davis style at top and he has added some personal stuff down the bottom. A little HTML knowledge helps in the process.

Uploading to WU would be the easiest as all the interim requirements have been done for you. You could do this from either the WeatherLink software (PC) or WeatherLink.com but you don't mention if you are uploading to WL2.0 or not?

I have been helping the OP and he has now got his website back http://my.kwic.com/~drrex/davis/dale.html (actually found Weatherlink templates a lot easier to use  :) than when I started on it 10 years ago and abandoned at the time)
He is now also on free https://www.weatherlink.com/bulletin/1cb23d15-494f-4e73-847f-c1141662116a

He has a Weather Underground account https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=IONTARIO577 but have not yet been successful in getting data on it - now several days.  The upload is set in weatherlink.com using his ID IONTARIO577 and password and only 15 min interval option.  Weatherlink 6.0.3 has Weatherlink Network as On. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Paul
