Wxstatus.php
« on: March 26, 2021, 09:48:28 AM »
Hi guys. I updated my NexStorm to the new version that just came out and on the WxStatus.php page, the ďNexStorm data fileĒ doesnít update any more.
Can anyone advise me where this file is and how to update it? My NexStorm is updating to the site just fine. https://www.joe4speed.com/wxstatus.php
Thank you!

The file it's looking for is ./nexstorm_arc.dat -- I'm not running NexStorm anymore now that StrikeStar has shut down, so I don't remember where in the config for NexStorm is the setting to produce/upload that file.  Check around in the NexStorm options.

Thank you, Ken. Poking around in the options, I canít find anything that remains unchecked.
Iíll send this info to Relko and see if anything has changed.
Thank you for your help!

Relko got back to me and said that file had become obsolete some years ago. And was taken out of the new release.
Another member offered a workaround which seems like a good option.

Thanks again. :)

You can just delete the nexstorm_arc.dat from your website, and the wxstatus.php will stop checking it :)
