Opened my site today and found that it no longer existed. Tried removing the "s" from the http:// and that was simply too easy. "The interweb is never rong!" Tried using a different machine. My site is still in the vast bit bucket... Came here and found there was the infamous broken image icon instead of my carefully created and wonderous WC Banner. [blush]

Called support ("Chat" method is obviously not working). Explained the problem, again and after several minutes of 'conversation' I was asked to wait a few moments to see if I could pass the Musak test.

Not having anything else to do, I downloaded my .htaccess file. Sure enough, at the end of that files were the extra lines that lead to the httpS actions:
Code: [Select]
# Always use https for secure connections
# Replace 'www.example.com' with your domain name
# (as it appears on your SSL certificate)
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://mid-southweather.com/$1 [R=301,L]
I had already commented those exact lines that "support" had added last week! I did it again and things are back to normal. If these lines are added again, without notification, much less my approval, I will simple move to another host. Not being 'politically correct', but I think the root of the problem is a language barrier. [banghead]

Dear WeatherCat observers of the seasons turning,

Amazingly, we have picked up 2.64" (67.1mm) of rain since the 15th of May.  That's a lot of late season moisture occurring after the grasses had turned to seed.  Out of curiosity I took a photo at about the same place I took the photo of the grasses starting to turn.  Here is that earlier photo taken on May 1st:



Here is the photo taken this morning:



There are some obvious changes as a result of the storms.  Some of the grasses were blown down by the wind.  I'm curious to see if the moisture will start the decomposition process that we normally only see in late autumn.  If it does that might mitigate some of the fire concerns.

I'll take another photo in a few weeks.  Stay tuned!

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

My apologies for my unfriendliness, sdmike!
Welcome AboaRd, sdmike!

Mr. Crossly, your point about 'station(s)' is does explain things better than the linked page.

OTOH...

downloaded temperatures are in Kelvin!
Not sure what you mean. [blush] The "Measurements" section offers temps as floating point numbers with "temp - real number [°C]; air temperature" as the default and "tempf - real number [°F];... (alternative to temp)". Of course, these are "upload" formats, not what might be "downloaded" from Windy. ???

Perhaps things are still in flux? Pressure now allows different formats: Pascal, milibar, hectoPascal and inches/Hg One must use the correct "Key" for the key/value pair. It looks like they are serious about making it easy to report from anywhere on Earth!

Dear sdmike, Mark, and WeatherCat station consultants,

Long time listener, first-time caller.  ;)

I see that in your signature you are looking to replace an ailing Davis Vantage Pro-1 station.  How anxious are you to replace this station?  We definitely can offer you some advice with respect to that.  Are you aware that Davis stations are heavily discounted by some retailers?

Thanks for being part of our community!  :)

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

I’m sure I caused most of the problems by “jumping in” to quickly. [banghead]

That’s actually the source the hosting company uses. What they do for free is the renewal process. I’m sure I caused most of the problems by “jumping in” to quickly. [banghead]

The "stations" section will actually create a new station if required, so best to leave it out. Just use the "station:0"  (or 1,2,3 etc) in the observation. Note the units and field names have to match. Initially the pressure was in inHg or Pascals*! They have since added hPa as an option ;)
I took a different route, and removed the complication of using a JSON body by just specifying the data directly in the URL.

*(and downloaded temperatures are in Kelvin!)

Glad you are back to 'normal', xair! Just want to mention that you can do a free Lets'sEncrypt SSL zertificate via Free SSL Zertifikate Wizard on your own without your hosting provider. So do I every three months. Although I think you already know...
