This document is based on version 5.20.2 of WVIEW available when writing this WiKi part.
The manual for wview can be found at Manual PDF
This form has a separate area for WVIEW https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/wview
The website with abundant information can be found at http://www.wviewweather.com/
|WVIEW is installed in:||Linux|
|Files to be uploaded are stored then in:||network folder|
|Default upload folder on your webserver:|
|file to be used for||WVIEW name||where to find||template name||upload frequency|
|Today actual and history min max values||tagsWV.htx||scriptsWV/ folder||uploaded as tagsWV.htm||5 minutes|
|Yesterday values||n/a||cron-job||tasgsydayWV.txt||at 23:45|
|Realtime weather-data values||not available for WVIEW|
IN WVIEW there are larege amounts of graphs available. The templatew only needs a subset of them so you should check your /etc/wview/images.conf file if those graphs are generated. If you switch to using the template later you should set all other graphs to comment in the images.conf file.
These graphs are needed:
Here you find only basic information on the setup of WSWIN. Please study the documentation and /or ask your questions on the WSWIN specific parts of the forum.
Most of the weather-data comes from 1 file:
Edit your /etc/wview/html-templates.conf file and add 1 line below anywhere in that file:
If you don't edit the html-template file the new tagsWV.htx will never get processed!
After you restarted WVIEW will process this file and the result will be placed in same folder as your current wview files.
Only very basic information can be given here. Read the manual or ask your questions on the forum.
If you are already uploading some files to the same webserver as the Leuven-Template, you can set in your wsUserSettings.php file , the exact location were this file can be found.
There are no “yesterday' values registred by WVIEW. So to get those values a small script should be run every day around 23.45 but before 00:00
The easiest way to do that is to use cron http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cron
The job which must be run is www.yourwebsite.com/weather27/yesterday.php
The real linux way is to use the built in cron functions at at 45 23 * * * . Those Linux experts know what and how.
But as some of you bought “black-box” wview systems there are alternative ways of doing it without touching the linux system.
1. You can either use your providers facilities if the support specifying cronjobs
Or you could use your first = free cron job at https://www.cronjob.de/
