Ken's NA and US past 2 hour strikes maps aren't getting any data for some reason.  I also use these scripts and have the same problem.

I'm curious as to what's going on with this!

See this thread: https://www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic=31584.0
The upshot is that the data source was moved from lightningmaps.org to blitzortung.org.

Thanks, Greg, but the relevant configuration in 'BO-mapgen.inc' is already set to
Code: [Select]
$mainURL = 'data.blitzortung.org';
and it's still not receiving data.

There has been a server IP change recently, and I wonder if it hasn't propagated through the DNS servers yet.

Is this the actual animate.txt file that you are using? This seems to be the default and HDIR is not pointing to your own server directory... (assuming that you are not "kunden")

Quote
#!/bin/bash
# generic bash script for gen-BO-maps.php.  K. True - saratoga-weather.org
# Version 1.00 - 18-Apr-2015 - initial release
#
# --- begin settings
# set HDIR to full file path to BOmaps directory on your website
HDIR=/kunden/homepages/9/d141952417/htdocs/wx/BOmaps

# set PHPcmd to full path to PHP V5+ on your host
PHPcmd=/usr/bin/php

# --- end settings
#
cd $HDIR
$PHPcmd -q gen-BO-maps.php > status.txt 2>&1
#

Maybe your animate.txt got overwritten during an update?

I suspect that server changes, possibly including a modified data format, are responsible for our current difficulties.

In trying to reference specific posts on the forum I came up with no way to do so.  There are references to a changed IP address as well as a new data format, but they have to be chased down rather than linked to.  Why don't they allow links individual posts?

https://dnschecker.org/#A/data.blitzortung.org reports all green check marks, so DNS is OK.

My http://miraculon.net/BOmaps/cache/gen-BO-maps-log.txt is reporting a bunch of [0] => HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized errors.

Greg H.

p.s. I tried entering the http://user:pass-omitted@data.blitzortung.org/Data_3/Protected/Strikes/2018/07/16/11/10.json.gz directly into the browser URL bar and I get apparent login failures with that.
(yes, I did change the user:pass-omitted to the correct entries)

I suggest changing to data2.blitzortung.org from data.blitzortung.org for the lightning data .. the data server seems to be overloaded at this time.

Thanks, Ken!  I see you have data available again, so I just made the change you suggested.
