Saratoga - wxhistory error
« on: April 16, 2020, 05:27:31 AM »
Hi All,

Noticed that over the last month that i am missing complete data on my wxwuhistory.php page, not sure if it is just me who is seeing this issue currently (i know that WU data can be a bit flakey at times)
I checked the source data on the page and checked the following link (for data for my site)
Code: [Select]
https://www.wunderground.com/weatherstation/WXDailyHistory.asp?ID=ICOKERRY3&month=04&day=16&year=2020&format=1&graphspan=dayand the page fails to error 404 page not found

So assuming that my scripts are working correctly (i have kept them up to date to 9th April 2020) -- can i assume it is normal Wunderground data being its usual flakey self and have to wait for it to finally update

The WU script WXDailyHistory.asp does not exist anymore. 

WU stopped all CSV downloads from the "old' server and replaced that with an incompatible new API/JSON  solution.
Ken developed a MITM script to solve this problem as there are a lot of scripts affected by this.

The new MITM script and descriptions how it works a.s.o. is found here: https://github.com/ktrue/WU-History
Readme: https://github.com/ktrue/WU-History/blob/master/README.md

The graphs used on that page are also gone, there is no replacement for that available.

Thanks for responding, Wim.  I've updated the WU-History-inc.php V3.4f to remove the <img> link to the graphic charts as Wunderground is no longer generating those images.
