Decided to copy my old site for now.  It is a work in progress.

I did figure out:

1. how to FTP with WD.
2. How to get data from my Rainwise ip-100 to WD.

Going to add Fresh WDL tonight.

Have a rainwise cc-3000 on its way.

I have decided to wait on any major website changes and coding issues until Christmas. It's too difficult to do that and try to teach the same time.

I have the students submitting new website icons and logos.

And I would like to thank 92merc for the donation of a rain Gauge heater. I will get that installed in the next couple of weeks

I received my RW  cc-3000.

I purchased the RS-232 model-weary of the USB like davis.

I cannot get my computer or WD or pick up the data from the cc-3000.
I know all of the boxes are checked and the light is blinking saying it is getting data.

Anything I can do to the com port to fix this?
RW has a comport tester. https://rainwise.com/cc-3000-data-logger

Nothing is in the file that it makes. Has to be a com issue on the computer end. Looks like all drivers are up to date AFAIK.

did more work on my template website.

I finally read the directions on the WD plugins and added my testtag file.

Still more work to do

but    http://www.bsmweather.org/index2.php


Question. What is the intended difference between index.php and wxindex.php

So I was thinking--IP 100 from the computer or the ethernet from a small switch.

I think I need to remove both. Restart the computer with the cc-3000 to reset the com ports.
Does that sound like the issue?

No school Friday. Rain gauge heater should go in!!!!

From what I recall and according to the template install instructions it is a temporary index file while you are working to set up the template and not to interfere with your live index file.

When you've decided that the new site is to be made 'live', then use these steps to have it become the primary display.


Rename (on your local disk) wxindex.php to index.php


Enjoy,
Paul
