advanced question...
« on: May 05, 2018, 04:51:12 PM »
I have a wireless davis vantage pro2 plus connected to a windows laptop running weather display and wxsim...I run my own network if you will and have a Mac mini server running some services on my network for all my devices, etc...

my question is, can meteotemplate run on a local web server and function the way it does on a remote server? what would one need to do to make this happen? I am pretty technical, so I feel it should be able to.

I know I can have weather display upload to my local server. I do have a web address that already points to my server externally, and run my own local firewall, dns and web server. anyways, like I said, I feel this is possible but not exactly sure what I would need to make it happen.

The best one to ask that question is jachymcz@gmail.com or try the website http://www.meteotemplate.com/web/index.php

I know he visits here sometimes, but i understand he has taken on a new job title and for the moment is in to that pretty heavy.

He usually responds very quickly and he is the developer.

Hope that helps

Yes, it will function while running locally. I am using a RapsberryPi with Apache. It is running 2 different meteotemplate releases. Create a meteotemplate directory where your web server software can access it. Then install your meteotemplate in that directory. On the RPi Apache by default looks in /var/www/html. One of my releases is in /var/www/html/meteo and the other is /var/www/html/meteo13.

They are accessed on the local network by http://"local server ip"/meteo  and http://"local server ip"/meteo13. Neither is accessible outside my local network.
