Propagation feature not working
« on: February 09, 2024, 01:37:55 PM »
The propagation feature on my wxradio page does not work,  I have tried the several fixes offered in this thread from last July to no avail:
https://www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic=45535

I reloaded the wxradio-V3.07 script including NWR-radios.js and refreshed the cache but no luck.  Any suggestions appreciated.  Thanks, Bill

It looks like you are missing the NWR-coverage.php script on your website -- it's returning a 404-Not Found.
That script provides the data used for the coverage and propagation displays in the map.

Thanks for taking a look, Ken. The NWR-coverage.php file actually is there along with the other radio files.  I tried deleting then reloading the file, but it still returns the 404-Not Found, as you have discovered.  However, the other NWR files do show properly when called for with no 404 error.  The radio page works properly but the NWR-coverage.php file acts as if it is not there.

Ok, you have a tough problem to solve.

Please install this update for the NWR-coverage.php -- it has additional diagnostic functions.
https://saratoga-weather.org/wxtemplates/USA/NWR-coverage.php?sce=view

Let me know when it's installed and I'll try additional debugging.

Thanks.. it's very strange.  What I'd expect to see with the debug enabled is
Code: [Select]
RADIO='WNG676'
NWRURL='https://www.weather.gov/source/nwr/shape/%s.zip'
URL='https://www.weather.gov/source/nwr/shape/WNG676.zip'
radioZIP='WNG676.zip'
 curl fetching 'https://www.weather.gov/source/nwr/shape/WNG676.zip'

but on your site, it shows

radioZIP='WNG676.zip'

Headers:

JSON error:

----------raw JSON string----------------

so it's missing all the curl statistics.

Can you check the error_log for the site and look for PHP errors for NWS-coverage.php script?

Also, add to the top of the NWR-coverage.php script (just after the opening <?
Code: [Select]
error_reporting(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors','1');

I made the addition to the top of the NWR-coverage.php script as you requested.  Then, in checking the error_log for the script, this is what came up:

error_reporting(E_ALL); ini_set('display_errors','1');
Warning: session_start(): Session cannot be started after headers have already been sent in /home/sartelleast/www/www/Settings.php on line 378

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/sartelleast/www/www/NWR-coverage.php:1) in /home/sartelleast/www/www/NWR-coverage.php on line 141

Ok, we're getting closer.

Put
Code: [Select]
error_reporting(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors','1');
  AFTER the opening <?php in the script.

Then, try changing your WD c:\wdisplay\webfiles\testtags.txt and delete the closing ?> line at the end.  There appears to be a space after that and it's causing headers to be emitted early.

If that doesn't fix the issue (but you should leave it that way anyway), then try changing NWS-coverage.php from
Code: [Select]
  $cacheFileDir = './';   // default cache file directory
to
Code: [Select]
  $cacheFileDir = './cache/';   // default cache file directory
and
Code: [Select]
if (isset($SITE['cacheFileDir']))    {$cacheFileDir = $SITE['cacheFileDir']; }
to
Code: [Select]
# if (isset($SITE['cacheFileDir']))    {$cacheFileDir = $SITE['cacheFileDir']; }
to comment out include of Settings.php althogether.

The testtags.php file on my site has this at the end:

// end of other addons
// end of testtags.txt/testtags.php
?>

Is this the ?> closing that I should delete?

I've updated the NWR-coverage,php with even more diagnostics.
Please download from here and upload to your site and let me know when it's available.

Thanks...

Ok, update it once more.

Also use your FTP program to change the permissions on NWR-radios-data.js to 755 so it can be written.  You have a very old version of that file
which is supposed to be updated by NWR-radios-data.php automatically, but somehow, it is not being updated.
After you change the permissions on NWR-radios-data.js, run NWR-radios-data.php?cache to manually update the cache.

I've updated the radio script set to V3.08 with those updates.

Download from the script page or GitHub.
I do urge all users of the wxradio.php script set to update .. it fixes an issue to get the current noaaweatherradio.org radios available file.
