My testtags.php file keeps getting corrupted
« on: January 04, 2011, 07:31:43 PM »
I've been running my web site built from the Carter Lake / Saratoga templates for about 6 months now.
The templates have been great and allowed me to get a nice site up with only a little programming experience.
I'm driving the content from Weather Display V10.37Q.

After the first of the year my site is now becoming corrupted.
I've traced the problem to my testtags.php file.

I push the original file up to my website and everything works fine at first.
After a couple minutes my site goes down (almost) with garbage on the screen.
Scrolling to the bottom of the page most of the page is there but of course isn't being updated etc.

I had been messing with some of the settings in Weather Display (still trying to figure out some of the functions) and I'm not sure if this somehow effected the management of the testtags file.

Any ideas on what could be going on?

My site is at www.sandownweather.com

Thanks in advance!

Ok, that is very strange.  It seems that WD is currently uploading a GIF file and calling it testtags.php and that is what is making your site unusable.  I attached a capture of the WD file (the daily min/max image file).

I suggest you attach a copy of your FTP log from the latest session so we can see what was happening.

Best regards,

Thanks Ken!
I think we're on to something!
This is very strange...as the files begin uploading they are being renamed!
Many of the file are shifted by one... :???:
So it seems to be something within WD that is causing it. I can't imagine how it could be doing this...

Any idea how WD does this mapping?

Here's an excerpt from my FTP log (full log is attached)

Well, that will do it  :shock:  #-o

This looks like a job for Brian to sort out.. I suggest you use http://www.weather-watch.com/smf/index.php/board,4.0.html and post what you'd shown in your last post in a new topic there .. I'm sure he can sort it out for you.

Best regards,
