Hello.  I'm trying to add my Davis Vantage Vue station to Wordpress but I'm getting the "Bad File Format" message.

My station is exporting realtime.txt via FTP every 15 minutes - format here:

16.06.19 15:20:38 17 81 13.7 8.4 4.8 260 0.00 5.20 1019.5 W 1 km/h C hPa mm --- --- 95.00 129.20 --- 18 61 17 --- 17 15:06 9 4:34 29.0 14:13 29.0 14:13 1019.6 14:50 1016.7 0:01 2.16 2.16 20.9 17 --- --- 0.00 --- --- 0.00 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

The file is held at /home/weather/realtime.txt and I'm adding this path to the WordPress plugin.

Can anyone help please?

Thanks

David

Hello David!

Sorry to hear that...

First of all, could you verify your path is correct. Try to do something like " cat /home/weather/realtime.txt" if you have command line access to your server. This error is mainly triggered when the file path is not correct.

If the file path is correct, could you verify if your file content match the standard format?

 

If you like Weather Station, please consider to make a review to help make it known. That would be the best way to thank me...

Hello David,

I have a vantage vue as well. My realtime-file is at https://www.hsvlimmen.nl/weer/hwactueel/hwactueel.txt and is reachable.

The path i use is /var/www/vhosts/hsvlimmen.nl/httpdocs/weer/hwactueel/hwactueel.txt

Yours should be different, but this is just te let you know as an example.

(I am testing so now and then, but it is not working at the moment. I guess that it has something to do with the date/time format.
My testpage is https://hsvlimmen.nl/?p=4264 )

Greetings,
Rob
