My station report on the mesomap has been stuck on the same data for more than two hours, yet clientraw.txt is updating my website every few seconds. If I go to it is showing the file time as 0828 or 0837 -changes each time I click on the file - (over two hours ago) which is presumably what is showing on the mesomap. The clientraw.txt file time on the iPage server is right up to date. Can't figure this out. Huh Must be something to do with my hosting change from e-rice to iPage?? I have caching turned off at the iPage control panel.

Aargh! Now the mesomap data is suddenly up to date (at 1115) but clicking on the clientraw.txt link above it still shows 0828......

Thanks for the reply, Martin.  It's working okay at the moment - there were some considerable gaps yesterday and it was odd how for 4 hours after I turned the computer on this morning it was showing information from when my overnight shutdown took place at 0030.

When I checked it this evening it was working fine.  Grin

What can sometimes happen is that the SCWN, UKWN or EWN servers try to fetch your clientraw file at the same time as it's being uploaded/overwritten on your server, so the request for the file is denied because it's not available. The network servers will only try once every 5 minutes to fetch the clientraw file so the station may show as "offline" during that time because the network server hasn't found new data. If you check back 5 or 10 minutes later you should find that data is showing again because there has been a fresh update.

WU and WOW use different data to that in the clientraw file and both have the data "pushed" to them, so shouldn't be effected and your own site will have priority over the use of the clientraw so you won't seen any effect either.  Wink

In the past I've noticed that sometimes my station shows offline on SCWN very occasionally even though clientraw is up and running.  However today, even though my website has been running okay continuously, on SCWN my station reports have been online and offline several times - and this is the same on UKWN and EWN.

Clientraw has been running faultlessly here on my website.  Could this be something to do with having been forced to change website hosts due to the sudden disappearance of E-Rice?  I'm now with iPage.  Clientraw is published to the root directory of my site on iPage and that is where all my files are.

Edit:..I turn my computer off overnight and today when I ran WD etc my station data on SCWN, UKWN and EWN is showing last night's information rather than initially showing 'offline' Huh.  I also upload to Weather Underground and that is uploading okay.

Edit again -... and now at 1220 all is working okay! Very confused!

Edit again....and by 1335 old information is being shown.  It's as though my clientraw.txt is only being updated occasionally.  SCWN, UKWN and EWN are the only sites affected.  My website, WU and WOW all are receiving clientraw okay.  The latter three of course all have the file uploaded by WD whereas the former three all - I think - pull the data themselves.

My site is

I hope it is the problem, i can't go replacing plugs on the end of the cable for ever  Angry, there are other things I would like to do but if there's still a problem I can't see things going any further  Sad

would it be fair to assume that this is the problem
It might be the problem but at the very least it won't be helping (& will probably only get worse over time), so best either way to fix it so there's one less unknown in the system.

As it was calm I checked where the cable goes though the gable end of the house and the photo shows where it's been rubbinig on a stone, it's down to the metal in one part, would it be fair to assume that this is the problem, although it's only one wire and it's not broken, however it would be earthing I'm sure.
edit, was trying to get the photo in here  Sad
