Configuring the WS1001 AMBIENT Clones tested with latest firmware version 2.3.7 (March 2017)

1. ALL files required to use the WS1001 hardware are included
2. In the folder weatherstation you will find a file called server.ini
3. Edit server.ini in a plain text editor example below and change www.yourserver.com to your url of template so it would read www.yoururl.com.com
4. It will look like this see also screenshot

[Menu]
default=www.yoururl.com
web=2
web1=www.wunderground.com
web2=www.yoururl.com

[www.wunderground.com]
Server=yoururl.com
ServerType=php
ServerPort=80
UploadType=Customize
ReadOnly=true

[www.yoururl.com]
Server=www.yoururl.com
ServerType=php
ServerPort=80
UploadType=Customize
ReadOnly=true

5. edit and save server.ini
6. connect WS1001 to a windows based machine via a mini USB connector lead
if the WS1001 is connected you will see it available in file explorer as a NAND device simply copy the file over but remember to save the original server.ini on your WS1001 un edited somewhere
7. reboot WS1001 and wait 60 seconds it should now be sending data to your server if you added the correct url .

Remember the big advantage of a WS1001 is? it does not require a PC to be running 24/7 to send data to internet,it is not dependant on third party software

@WS1001, :-)

HTTPS 5 good reasons weather34info it is important

1. Browsers will or have already began starting to flag non-https websites as ‘not secure’
2. If you want SEO performance and ranking then just switch to HTTPS today ignore the sceptics..
3. Your visitors or users deserve the security
4. In the near future you will find that some powerful HTML5 features,such as geolocation,
will be unavailable without a secure connection.
5. AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) the ever growing demand for fast mobile friendly sites without HTTPS your website gets flagged non mobile friendly

So if you have not yet added HTTPS to your website, it could be only a matter of time before you have little choice in the matter and choose to ignore you will get left behind.
Think Secure Think Trusted Think Safe

Choose Web Hosting

Web Hosting like everything these days "you get what you pay for". It is worth paying a little bit more for many reasons, like all hobbies or your interests the enthusiasm can grow and demand some reliability,performance as you get more curious or enthusiastic.

weather34 is not affiliated to any software or hosting company and does not profit or make any gains . https://weather34.com resides on a server hosted by ICDSOFT for experience,performance,support and reliability,nothing else.

Reliable Web Hosting is as important as the accuracy of your weather station ,a $30 a year package is just not going to be good enough as you look to expand and use the knowledge you learn or have. $60 to $99 is a good budget per year and you should easily find a suitable host for your weather station or other personal projects etc..But remember to do a bit of homework often you will see $1 dollar a month promotions look ahead,read the small print and see the catch a year later will have a totally different price for the same ..its called marketing for new customers.
Please understand and do some research what shared hosting really means and why it can have a serious performance issue for you ,different host impose limitations,restrictions due to shared hosting capabilities..
