Re: meterN 1.0

Hi JM,

Yes, that fixes the issue ( don't quite understand how or why ... )

As always, many thanks for your work on 123Solar/meterN and for the rapid responses to issues.

Re: meterN 1.0

Hi JM, I am afraid my PHP skills are very limited, but the following link http://docs.php.net/manual/en/types.comparisons.php seems to confirm that 'isset()' returns true for an empty string, so yes I think it is a genuine bug. Now to another issue - meterN 1.2 displays a long list of unused live va...

Re: 123solar 1.8

Yep, I found that too ..... So far as I can tell all directories in the hierarchy have excecute permission for all users ( including http which is the user 123solar runs under ..) All nodes except /srv are owned by http /srv has excecute permissions for any user [-@pw-archpi ~]$ ls -l / | grep srv d...

Re: 123solar 1.8

The command shown in the Communications Test response was 'timeout --kill-after=15s 10s /usr/local/bin/sbfspot.3/SBFspot ...

Re: meterN 1.0

Hi, Just upgraded to metern 1.2.1 and I am experiencing exactly the same symptoms as described by Edoardo in the past few posts .... Checked mN_LIVEMEMORY.json and this contains valid values for 'Electricity Consumption' and 'Solar Production' live meters. This file disappears when metern is stopped...

Re: Unable to run Upgrade

Hi,
It turns out that the problem was due to an old php.ini file.

Earlier versions of php had open_basedir set by default, and in my case this excluded access to /tmp.
php 7 and later leaves open_basedir unset by default.

I can now run the updater for both metern and for 123solar ....
Thanks ...

Re: Unable to run Upgrade

Yes, I am aware of the https change and have done the change for previous upgrades.

The upgrade process successfully detects the available new release and fails as described when attempting to start the actual upgrade.

Unable to run Upgrade

Hi jeanmarc I am currently unable to run the Upgrade process either for meterN or for 123solar. In both cases, it reaches the _INSTALL/updater.php page which simply displays 'ERROR' Looking at updater.php, I modified the ERROR message to display CURDIR and SRVDIR. It seems that the Session variables...
