UK Met Office WOW / WOW-NL error 403
« on: January 30, 2019, 11:19:48 PM »
Hi,

My login is correct as I get green ticks but the Live data tab gives me the flooding error;

UK Met Office WOW / WOW-NL:   2019-01-30 23:16:53 ERROR 403: Forbidden. (unlimited more tries, netx in 150 secs)

Any ideas how to fix this?

how many retries do you have set?

What time period is set to upload with?

On the WOW info page (https://wow.metoffice.gov.uk/support/dataformats) the following is suggested:

It is recommended that the interval between automatic observations from your AWS is at least 5 minutes.

Retry forever???? I'm guessing wow is blocking you from constant retries.

Retry Forever, is not a good option.

For now since there is an apparent issues with retries I would be setting it to None.
