Strange - my metar displays are also down on the east coast of Scotland, ie for EGPD with "unable to load EGPD data RC=" but the metar displays at Lochaber Weather on the west coast of Scotland and ConligWX in Ireland are working.

It looks like a problem with DNS on your webserver.  The get-metar-conditions-inc.php script is at the current version.

Doing a view-source on wxmetar.php?debug=y&force=1 to force a cache reload and diagnostic output shows

Contact your webhoster tech support regarding DNS lookup for tgftp.nws.noaa.gov on your webserver.

Thanks Ken - it seems to have resolved itself before I could contact my webhost....but at least I know what to do if the identical problem reappears.
