A very nice chap has managed to design some open-source that can be installed on linux. The software is meant to provide graphing facilities, data logging and website display of this data.
Here's the link:
I am wanting to setup this software so that I can log data from my weather station, produce graphs and put them on a webage which i can view at and away from home.
My first porblem - I am a complete Newbie/Idiot when it comes to Linux! I dont have a clue how to install software or anything, im guessing its not as easy as Windows (which i am very familiar with
If anyone can advise me on, firstly what Linux Distro to use, how to get the software working and how to put the info onto a webpage.
Just to help things along - In the readme that comes with the package you are told you need the following:
- a linux server connected via rs232 to the weather station
- an internet connection and a way to connect to the linux
server from the internet. unless you have a static ip
a service like dyndns will be necessary.
- the linux server must have apache running.
- gnuplot version 4.2 must be installed
- true type fonts you want to use should be installed
- perl must be there.
Here is the kit that i am using:-
Oregon Scientific WMR928 Weather station + Serial Cable
Hp Compaq PC specs-
250GB IDE HDD
CD/DVD drives connected when needed
Thank you All!!!
