Php 8.1
« on: April 11, 2023, 09:54:20 AM »
Hi, my web host changed my php version to 8.1 last night and my dashboard is blank. I was wondering if anyone else had this issue and what can be done? I have done all the updates.
Thank you!

I switched to 8.1 and did all the updates and my site has been working fine, just for reference.

The older versions of AltAjaxDashboardConfig6.php had two 'naked' constants (which cause a PHP Fatal error in PHP8)

Change
Code: [Select]
$month = $today[month];
$day = $today[mday];
to
Code: [Select]
$month = $today["month"];
$day = $today["mday"];
to fix the issue.

The 4 other scripts in the alternative dashboard also need to be updated from the 6.95h distribution:
cloud-base.php
get-aqi-rss.php
heavens.php
raintodate.php
in addition to ajax-dashboard6.php itself.

Well, I did it, but now I'm getting some strange errors.
Thank you for any insight, I'm not sure where I went wrong here:

Now it is a WD setting that needs to be changed.  The testtags.php should not have units included with the weather variables.

Use the Weather-Display Control Panel,
Web Files/Web Page/Real Time FTP/WDL,
Custom Web Page Setup TAB

Untick: "Include the Units used"

Thank you, that fixed that problem. I wonder why that happened, I never touched WD before doing all of this.
I have the php 8.1 running now.
I have a couple more little issues if you might be able to advise me:
The SPC map doesnít show any more.
I canít seem to get the webcam picture to show like it used to where current conditions are.
The cloud level graphic says clientraw not available.
And there are some more php errors towards the bottom which are odd. (To me)
Thank you so much!

Suggest you double check lines 154 and 156 in cloud base.php that the paths are correct

For the messages at the bottom of the page, just set WXSIM to do a 5 day forecast instead of a 4 day forecast.

Nope, the url points to the correct destination.

Thank you, that worked.

Would you have any idea why the SPC map adds A strange url to the image? "https://www.joe4speed.com/ajax-dashboard6-V6.95h/https://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/activity_loop.gif" Maybe that's why it doesn't show any more? It seems to want to point a lot at folder ajax-dashboard6-V6.95h, but I never specified that folder for anything.

All of this stuff worked on the older version, all I did was coppy the different settings to the new version and things are strange.

So the cloud-base.php issue is the specification for the clientraw/clientrawextra as
Code: [Select]
$clientraw   = 'https://joe4speed.com/clientraw.txt';      // relative file address for WD clientraw.txt
#$clientraw   = 'https://saratoga-weather.org/weewx/clientraw.php';
$clientextra = 'https://www.joe4speed.com/clientrawextra.txt'; // relative file address for WD clientrawextra.txt
  that has to be FILE addresses, not URLs like
Code: [Select]
$clientraw   = './clientraw.txt';      // relative file address for WD clientraw.txt
#$clientraw   = 'https://saratoga-weather.org/weewx/clientraw.php';
$clientextra = './clientrawextra.txt'; // relative file address for WD clientrawextra.txt

For the SPC map display, change ajax-dashboard6.php from
Code: [Select]
<img src="../ajax-dashboard6-V6.95h/<?php echo $spc_img?>" alt="SPC Activity Map" to
Code: [Select]
<img src="<?php echo $spc_img?>" alt="SPC Activity Map"

So I originally had it set that way and it still didn't work. When I change it back, it shows the cloud graphic for a minute then changes back to clientraw not found. Refreshing the page loses it.

Can you tell why it wants to point everything to "ajax-dashboard6-V6.95h" folder? I had to create that folder to point all the graphics to, because the graphics wanted to go there instead of the root folder like before? This seems to be a big part of my problem is that the script wants to point to a folder that I never created instead of what was there before. The "Rain Today" rain graph points to that folder too, so the image doesn't show, and I never specified that. Is there a global setting somewhere that defaults to a "ajax-dashboard6-V6.95h" folder?

Settings.php has $SITE['imagesDir'] that points to where the images are.  Should contain ./ajax-images/ (which is correct).

Looking at your copy of ajax-dashboard6.php?sce=view shows 16 instances that has
Code: [Select]
../ajax-dashboard6-V6.95h/ in the <img src="... statements.  I suspect that a global replace you did at some time changed the
Code: [Select]
{$imagesDir} to the bogus value.
The best way to fix that is likely to use ajax-dashboard6.php from the 6.95h distribution.

I think these must be written this way originally since I never had that folder. I had to create it to move images to because they wanted to go to that folder after the switch.

I got the cloud graphic to work by changing:
Code: [Select]
<img src="../ajax-dashboard6-V6.95h/cloud-base.php?alt=<?php echo $cloudheightmeters?>m" alt="" title="<?php echo $cloudheightmeters?>m ASL" height="200" width="90" /></span>
to:
Code: [Select]
<img src="../cloud-base.php?alt=<?php echo $cloudheightmeters?>m" alt="" title="<?php echo $cloudheightmeters?>m ASL" height="200" width="90" /></span>

I'm really not sure where "ajax-dashboard6-V6.95h" came from, but thank you so much for helping me track all of this down. I do appreciate your time.

Hi the aqi is not being received hence the errors they usually disappear when your site can get the data this is a problem at the aqi end not your web site
Can you access the the lightning web site you cannot see on you page

The get-aqi-rss.php script doesn't have much in error checking built-in.  You do need to change
Code: [Select]
$urlRealtime = "http://feeds.enviroflash.info/rss/realtime/134.xml";  //San Jose, CA - Current Air Quality
to point to YOUR AQI source .. the default one is for San Jose, CA (mine).
You can suppress errors by adding
Code: [Select]
error_reporting(0); after that line in the script.  It seems your webserver had issues getting the data from feeds.enviroflash.info, but is showing data now.

Regarding wxajaxlight.php, there's likely an included script in the main-copy section that is blowing up with a Fatal PHP error.  Can't tell what that might be remotely.  Please attach the wxajaxlight.php page along with any include/require scripts in the main-copy section of the page, and I'll take a look.
