Then, you have now all Cumulus weather infos ready to be send to your web site to form a fonctional and dynamic pesonal weather site. If you don't need optional pages, your installation ends here!
Like mentioned up here, installation of this management console for your weather station need a little more configuration into Cumulus. Find here steps to follow :
That's the file that has to be processed by Cumulus to give you all status of your weather site.
Like you have allways copied that file earlier, the only other thing to do is to tell Cumulus to recognize this page as a file to be processed at the same time as the other weather pages of your site.
That will bring you to the transfer and transformations configuration screen:
Be sure that the cases "Include Standard Files" and "Include Standard Images" are ticked like our sample.
To process our page, Cumulus need 4 informations :
Then, in our sample : (bold indicate essential parameter)
You simply have to replace access path to file system.htm, on your Pc ("C:" in our example), then in your website ("Public_html" in our sample)
Finally, you just have to select cases "Process?" and "Ftp?" ... to let the fun begin!
Your new Console will be added to your Website at the next Cumulus automatic upload process.
At last, we have 2 other optional pages that need extra care (infos.htm and webcam.htm).
For these pages, you have to tell Cumulus to process it as like system.htm page here.
But if you want to save on download time or amount of upload, you could only process (and ftp) it only one time... because these pages just need header uodate!
Et Voilà !
(If you don't want to wait next upload process, launch a manual upload with option "Web Update" into Cumulus "File" menu)
