Saratoga Template and conds.php for Meteobridge
« on: May 17, 2020, 01:06:37 PM »
Ken.

I have been looking at the conds.php file and came across this line:

Code: [Select]
$cacheFileDir = './';                     // default cache file directory
$cacheName = "MBconditions.txt";           // locally cached conditions string from Meteobridge

when does this file get created? I dont seem to have this on my site so I am not sure if I have an issue or not?

Peek down a few more lines of code.

Code: [Select]
// overrides from Settings.php if available
global $SITE;
if(isset($SITE['cacheFileDir']))     { $cacheFileDir = $SITE['cacheFileDir']; }
$outFileName = $cacheFileDir.$cacheName;
if(isset($SITE['realtimefile']))     { $outFileName = $SITE['realtimefile']; }

If you have "realtimefile" set in the $SITE array (in Settings-weather.php), the "MBconditions.txt" file name never gets used.

The conds.php script should be invoked by HTTP 'download' in Meteobridge

See: 5. Setup of optional AJAX updates using HTTP upload in https://saratoga-weather.org/wxtemplates/setup-Meteobridge.php

By doing this, you'll have MBrealtime.txt and MBrealtimegauges.txt created and updated for you.  No need to change settings in the script.. it will put the files at the document root/current directory in your website.
