 +==== FTP Setup ====
 +
 +<WRAP alert  100%>​Here you find only basic information on the setup of VWS. Please study the documentation and /or ask your questions on the VWS specific parts of the forum.</​WRAP>​
 +
 +
 +Sequence of steps to follow:
 +  * use your ftp program to download the file **tags.vws.htx** from your website folder **weather28/​scriptsVW/​**
 +  * move this file to your VWS template folder on yor PC. Often this is **C:​\vws\root\**
 +  * Go in VWS to menu **__I__nternet** and then to **HTML Settings**
 +<WRAP tip>Here you set in the left colom which file must be converted by VWS. Converted means that all VWS tags (example: **^vhi007^**) are replaced by the real value, in this example it would be the maximum outside temperature of today.
 +
 +The file is saved at the location and with the name as specified by you in the right colom
 +</​WRAP>​
 +{{ :​vws_tags_upload.jpg?​nolink |}}
 +  * type 
 +    * left C:​\vws\root\**tags.vws.htx**
 +    * right  C:​\vws\root\**tagsVW.txt**
 +    * set the  **Update Timer** nearly at the bottom at 5 minutes
 +  * click the button upload **Files to Internet**
 +    * in the "​from"​ location you type the name of the converted file  C:​\vws\root\**tagsVW.txt**
 +    * in the right colom ?proceeded by some extra as /httpdocs/ ?  you type **/​weather28/​uploadVW/​**
 +    * Click on the "​calendar"​ icon where you set the uploadtime and frequency. In the example you see that TagsVW.txt is uploaed every 5 minutes.
 +
 +==== uploading the graphs ====
 +In the VWS menu go to **__M__odify Display** choice **Graph**. ​
 +The next box with a lot of selection possibillities is displayed. Adapt you VWS to generate at least the checked settings in this image.
 +{{ :​vws_graph_select.jpg?​nolink |}}
 +
 +==== VWS - WFLASH upload ====
 +If you alreaqdy use WeatherFlash (wflash) you can skip this part.
 +{{ :​vws_wflash.jpg?​nolink |}}
 +
 +In the VWS menu go to  **__I__nternet** choice **Weatherflash**
 +
 +User should be  **DEMO** ​ in capitals.
 +
 +Timer should be not to much less then 30 seconds. It is a waste of resources to set it much lower as you have to understand that the wflash files are uploaded 24/7, if there are visitors to your site or not.
 +
 +In the box **Active Server Page** check **Activate**
 +
 +Here you have to type the name of the script which is accepting the WFLASH uploads.\\ ​
 +The script is stored in weather28/​scriptsVW/​ with the name **submit.php**
 +
 +If your website name is %%www.yourwebsite.com%% you set this value to **%%www.yourwebsite.com/​weather28/​scriptsVW/​submit.php%%?​**
 +
 +Please do not forget the ? at the end, as in the examples. The wflash files will not be uploaded without that **?**
 +
 +Press **Close**
 +
 +==== Use of already available wflash files ====
 +If you are already uploading wflash files, you have to set the location of the files for the template scripts.
 +
 +Default the template scripts search for them in the upload folder **weather28/​uploadVW/​**.
 +
 +<​code>#​---------------------------------------------------------------------------
 +# IMPORTANT ​    will you be uploading to the default upload folder (uploadXX) where xx is the short code for your weather program
 +#​---------------------------------------------------------------------------
 +#
 +$SITE['​standard_upload'​]= true;
 +#       If you do not want or are not able to upload to the default folder set the correct upload folder here
 +#     
 +#​$SITE['​uploadDir'​] = '​../'; ​       // #####        example for upload to root
 +#​$SITE['​clientrawDir'​] = '​../';​
 +#​$SITE['​graphImageDir'​] = '​../';​
 +#​---------------------------------------------------------------------------</​code>​
 +Remove the comment mark at the line  **$SITE['​clientrawDir'​]** and point to your own loacation. The name clientrawDir is used for all realtime files, so also for WFLASH.
 +
 +The **../** should be included, as it signals that the remainder of the location starts in the root of the website.
 +IF the wflash files are located in %%www.yourwebsite.com/​wflash/​%% ​ you change that line to
 +<​code>​
 +$SITE['​clientrawDir'​] = '​../​wflash/';</​code>​
