Did the UV Index Forecast script stop working for anyone else?

Yep.. they switched to all https access.  I've updated the get-UV-forecast-inc.php to V1.09.

Use the update tool for Base-*, Plugin-*, 12-Feb-2021
After installation run wxuvforecast.php?force=1 to refresh the cache

Standalone: download from the script page

Thanks to @lddaly for the heads-up about the change at temis.nl

Ken is this not suppose to be get-UV-forecast-inc.php?force=1 ?

I've tried both but I only get a 0 byte uv-forecast.txt file created.

if I goto https://www.temis.nl/uvradiation/nrt/uvindex.php?lon=-5.671925&lat=54.634059

there is some data.  its like the data is not being saved to my web server. permissions however are fine.

It appears to be an issue with your webserver and DNS resolution.  Running view-source on wxuvforecast.php?force=1 on your site shows

thanks for the tip.  strange thing is I can browse to https://www.temis.nl/  but I cannot ping it due to DNS ? tried to refresh on webserver and my own PC, no joy.

ran a few dns lookups on other websites and they are reporting:

Code: [Select]
Checking Domain Name
Domain Name: temis.nl
Top Level Domain: NL (Netherlands)

DNS Lookup
No entry found
Reverse DNS entry: not found

maybe the dns for them is having issues.  i'll give it a few days.  my webserver is set to 1.1.1.1 8.8.8.8 and opendns servers.  no other issues with any other sites so guessing this is a nds routing issue to me and few other websites

It sounds like you're running your own VPS webserver...

If you SSH to your server, you can do nslookup and also see what /etc/resolv.conf are showing.

Here's my results
Code: [Select]
# nslookup www.temis.nl
Server:         208.67.222.222
Address:        208.67.222.222#53

Non-authoritative answer:
www.temis.nl    canonical name = temis.pmc.knmi.cloud.
Name:   temis.pmc.knmi.cloud
Address: 34.248.63.123
Name:   temis.pmc.knmi.cloud
Address: 52.214.85.242
Name:   temis.pmc.knmi.cloud
Address: 63.32.9.176

# cat /etc/resolv.conf
; generated by /usr/sbin/dhclient-script
#nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 208.67.222.222
nameserver 1.1.1.1
nameserver 212.227.123.16
nameserver 212.227.123.17
#
If you have a caching DNS on your server, then try restarting it.  If your upstream nameserver entries point to your hosters caching DNS servers, put the common external ones like I did before them in /etc/resolv.conf

I've found that the default DNS servers with hosters tend to have more resolution issues than the well-known public DNS resolvers.

Good morning, Does the UV page not show the UV forecast any longer? Mine is only showing the table...

i have been testing the alt dashboard and at night the UV forecast values are far too high https://www.hc-iom.co.uk/WD-AJAX1/index.php if i go into https://www.hc-iom.co.uk/WD-AJAX1/wxuvforecast.php i see the same if i force it to clear cache it corrects for a while the normal dashboard has the correct values every time https://www.hc-iom.co.uk/WD-AJAX/index.php  https://www.hc-iom.co.uk/WD-AJAX/wxuvforecast.php setting are the same in both
i also notice the tide info on the alt dashboard is not correct but if i refresh the page it corrects
sorry if this is not explained very well

have done some searching in the forum and the heaven.php was found to be causing a different problem for 1 user, so i looked at the settings in the file and found they were wrong so corrected and tested and the uv forecast was correct in both versions and the tide seams ok as well
the only ref to the heaven.php was in the README-alt-dashboard-695.txt but does not mention that the settings need changing to your location in it, so the txt may need a mod
i found a couple of alt-dashboard sites that were doing the same thing probably for the same reason forum users KK7X and tshattuck
