Meteotemplate 19 cranberry doesn’t work on new Plesk host

Post by willefg » Tue Jun 11, 2024 7:20 pm

Hi,

My weather site https://hetweerinbladel.frankwillems.co ... esktop.php doesn’t display properly. I haven’t been sending much data to the site due to a devastating fire in our home, but recently got my WEEWX server reconnected. In the meantime my host decided to migrate my meteotemplate website to their Plesk server. It seems that ever since that the problems occur. Plesk is running PHP 8.2.18 (only other options are 8.1.28 and 8.3.6, tried setting both with no difference). Does anyone have an idea what might be wrong? Next to that I can’t find the admin page.

Thank you for your help!

I have the same problem. Had this problem with 18, updated to 19 but it still remains. I don't think it is the host, (i'm with interserver) because i am able to view my meteotemplate site perfectly via mobile chrome browser on iphone. I think it is something to do with indexDesktop.php. https://www.dtwrlewis.com/rothesay/indexDesktop.php

Hello,
Maybe some elements on the page are not secure, such as images.
Here is what it gives, under Firefox by removing this security in your URL, http instead of https:

http://hetweerinbladel.frankwillems.com/template/indexDesktop.php
Image

and
http://www.dtwrlewis.com/rothesay/indexDesktop.php
Image

Check the URLs in the config.php file and change http to https.

If this helps... Michel

Thanks Lemimi

Jachym replied to my email suggesting the same thing. I opened the config.php and changed $pageURL = 'http........... to $pageURL = 'https........... It now works.

One problem that I've had for sometime remains - the site is intermittently slow to load, especially the backend admin pages. This probably is an issue with my server, could this be a php version issue? or is this also related to http vs https?

Thanks again Lemimi for taking the time to reply

Hello,
Very happy to have been able to help you.
For me, your meteotemplate site loads normally without any apparent slowness.
Remember to change your banner URL on this forum to https.
Best regards... Michel
