Running WeeWX in a container on a QNAP NAS
« on: September 20, 2022, 08:49:38 AM »
Has any of you figured out how to run WeeWX in a container?
My attempts ended with Python errors etc. and I finally gave up. 

Why container? Because if I run a virtual (Ubuntu) image on my NAS, it wont be restarted on reboot but running containers are.

Thanks.

It has been done with Docker.  I'm pretty sure that there is info on the weewx-users Google Group.....

I do not have Google account and do not plan to get one. So, this is useless.

I used a Python image (Docker) and added what was missing.
Maybe I should go with full Ubuntu image instead.

yes, I got it running in an Ubuntu 18.4 docker container on my QNAP TS-453A
was some work but I finally succeeded - used the setup.py method for weewx

I have a TVS-472XT. I'll see if setup.py makes any difference. I think I have kind of a permission issues with writing logs etc.

at the container and OS end a few things need to be considered ...
here is what I did:
- the container has to be set into "host" mode in the advanced settings for network - not "NAT", which is the default setting - otherwise you cannot reach it from another device in the same network
- a webserver needs to be installed on ubuntu - I chose apache2
- the listening port of the webserver has to be changed from 80 to something else (I chose 8000) - otherwise you cannot get the skin either as you will compete with the NAS webserver on port 80
- a symbolic link needs to be created from /var/www/html/weewx to /home/weewx/public_html - otherwise you only get the webserver default page
- I also installed rsyslog - it's not installed with ubuntu by default - but with rsyslog you find your system log including the weewx messages in /var/log/syslog
- I chose the "old" weewx starting procedure with /etc/init.d/weewx  (see weewx documentation)
- after some customizing in skin.conf and weewx.conf - mainly for labels and for extra sensors - the Seasons skin is displayed perfectly

if you want to see the result: http://meshka.eu/weewx2

meanwhile I've learnt a bit more about Docker containers and how to share - directly or indirectly - NAS shared folders with the container
so once I find the time, I will set up a new container which incorporates all these things and migrate my weewx installation into the new container

I made a new Docker container as you have to setup the shared folders of your NAS which you want to share with the container during creation - afterwards you can't change it anymore.
That I forgot/didn't understand when setting up the first container.
Maybe you can tweak it somehow deep in the internals, but that's not my thing.
You can circumvent the missing shares with some tricky scp command, but that's not very convenient to do.

Everything perfect as far as I can see - it was quite some manual installation of tools etc. as the ubuntu image available in the Container Store is much less "equipped" than a Raspian or Debian which comes e.g. with a RasPi.
Both containers now run as factual mirrors. And weewx runs flawlessly for the Seasons skin. A newly added WN35 (Leaf wetness) appeared right after installation in the Seasons skin.
That's for the Ecowitt Gateway driver (aka GW1000 driver).

I added a few service starts at reboot into the crontab (rsyslog, apache2, weewx - in this sequence - as they are not automatically started - there may be better ways to do that, but it works  ;))

I found out why weewx crashes. It seems it cant function without rsyslog.
Ubuntu container has no rsyslog installed. I had to install it and start rsyslogd manually.
So, I got weewx running. At least I can see it's logging but wont update the webpage.
Weather is absolute crap - cold and rainy, so maybe I'll spend some time figuring this out.

yes, as you may have read in my earlier post, there is no rsyslog in the ubuntu container so I had to install it; then weewx started running  8-)
regarding the webpage (you mean the [e.g. Seasons] skin I guess)
a) you need to have a webserver installed (apache2, nginx, ...)
b) you need to put the HTML_root in weewx.conf to /var/www/html/weewx, where the subdirectory weewx might first need to be created:
mkdir /var/www/html/weewx
and in weewx.conf
[StdReport]
HTML_ROOT = /var/www/html/weewx

then you should be able to see the updated skin pages via IP-address:your-selected-port/weewx
e.g. 192.168.1.99:8000/weewx

but, you need to have changed the listening port for your container webserver from 80 to 8000 (and restart the webserver)
in apache2 this done in 000-default.conf (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default.conf) first line
and in /etc/apache2/ports.conf - replace entry Listen 80 by Listen 8000

you cannot use port 80 in the container as it holds the same IP address and 80 conflicts with the webserver of your NAS - therefore you have to run/let listen the container webserver at another port - I chose 8000 - that's what I used in the examples

if in spite of all this you don't get updated pages (and weewx doesn't show the archiving of the data in the syslog), then probably your weewx driver/extension for your weather station console doesn't provide loop data. Or you haven't switched from Simulator to your station driver yet.

From weewx.conf
Code: [Select]
# Root directory of the weewx data file hierarchy for this station
WEEWX_ROOT = /home/weewx

...

[StdReport]

    # Where the generated reports should go, relative to WEEWX_ROOT
    HTML_ROOT = public_html

Files should show up in /home/weewex/public_html/ but there is nothing there.

Web server is not the issue. It runs finer and I can configure it to read those files from anywhere.

Yes, "Using GW1000 driver version 0.5.0b5 (user.gw1000)"

> station_type = ? in weewx.conf in the [Station] stanza ?

station_type = GW1000

> and what does the stanza station_type points to look like ?

Code: [Select]
[GW1000]
    # This section is for the Ecowitt Gateway driver.

    # How often to poll the API, default is every 20 seconds:
    poll_interval = 10

    # The driver to use:

    port = 45000

> is Seasons activated in the [StdReport] stanza ?

Yes

> what does the [StdReport] stanza look like ?

Code: [Select]
[StdReport]

    # Where the skins reside, relative to WEEWX_ROOT
    SKIN_ROOT = skins

    # Where the generated reports should go, relative to WEEWX_ROOT
    HTML_ROOT = public_html

    # Uncomment and change to override logging for reports
    # log_success = True

    # The database binding indicates which data should be used in reports.
    data_binding = wx_binding

    # Each of the following subsections defines a report that will be run.
    # See the customizing guide to change the units, plot types and line
    # colors, modify the fonts, display additional sensor data, and other
    # customizations. Many of those changes can be made here by overriding
    # parameters, or by modifying templates within the skin itself.

1. is weewx running ?
service weewx status
what does it write into the syslog ?
2. what does the weewx startup in syslog look like ? (debug = 1 in weewx.conf)
until first archive cycle (if this ever happens) - syslog for 5- 10 minutes from weewx startup.
3. you can run the Ecowitt Gateway driver (GW1000) stand-alone from the console.
Does it provide readings ?

and https://pastebin.com/YtRyNtSB

> until first archive cycle (if this ever happens) - syslog for 5- 10 minutes from weewx startup.

See the previous pastebin link. It's the same.

Does it provide readings ?

Yes, as I have told you before, this is all OK

This is what I have been going on about.

Files should show up in /home/weewex/public_html/ but there is nothing there.

I give up. It has become a total waste of my time. I can run this on a VM, if I have to and if I miss few hours of data when NAS is down or I forget to restart the VM, it wont change anything.

Only reason why I wanted to run it in a Docker container, is because containers are started automatically when NAS reboots.

Thanks for your time.
Cheers!

come on - shit happens ...
I can send you the standard Seasons skin directory content in a ZIP attached  8-)
Just copy it/unpack it into /home/weewx/skins/Seasons and it should work

Because it runs perfectly - my 1st install didn't work out either - needed a 2nd one  ;)

It seems that the installation process wants to use "tools" that are not available in container environment and craps out without continuing.

For example : nvoke-rc.d: could not determine current runlevel

It's kinda bizarre because much more complicated software can be installed and used. Who ever wrote this installation script for deb, did not bother to test it properly or was just lazy.
