Meteohub on Excito B3

Post by tervingo » Wed Jan 30, 2013 9:43 pm

Hi,

Does anyone know/use the Excito B3 hardware? I am currently running Meteohub on an 'old-and-likely-soon-to-be-dead' NSLU2 and would like to run it on a newer (silent, low-power) server which at the same time is able to act as a Web Server. Seems like Excito B3 with Debian Linux on it could be a good option provided it can run meteohub as a VM, I guess.

Any ideas?

Thank you all in advance

BestRegards

Juan

To be honest, I never heard of the Excito B3 before you mentioned that.
As it is a >300 Euro unit I don't expect major interest in that from the Meteohub users,
so don't expect an official Meteohub port onto that.

Well, I'm not particularly interested on the Excito B3 hardware.

What I am actually looking for is some silent server where I can run simultaneosly Meteohub and a Web Server. If I am not mistaken, Meteohub runs its own OS, and therefore in order to run alongside to a WebServer Meteohub should be running on a VM hosted in the silent server. Is that correct?

Thank you in advance for your help

I'm using VirtualBox and one of the virtual machines is running MH. VMware is used by other users, so you should be able to run a Webserver and MH on the same physical hardware

Thanks a lot for the info. What I'm not sure of is whether I can run VirtualBox or VMware on a small "silent" hardware (of the eBox, iConnect, DC01 etc. type)

forget it! VM on these gadgets isn´t working ... isn´t needed ... and doesn´t make sense at all ...

meteohub comes with a tiny webserver.
What exactly do you want to achieve with the webserver?
Using it for the weather pages?

Yes, exactly, I want it for the weather web pages. I didn't know that Meteohub included a small WebServer. God to know! Thanks a lot for the info!

I would like to add my own software to meteohub on my dream plug: Using a REST API to control a USB-relais board.

Is there a more detailed description of the metehub software architecture? I could only find one picture on page 10 in the manual v4.7 http://www.meteohub.de/files/meteohub-v4.7en.pdf...

My questions are:
- What kind of web server is used?
- How to plug in my web services?
- Which programming languages are available on a meteohub debian? I could find C, perl, python (any more?)
- How much computing power and memory are "left" for my software?

I would recommend to login via ssh and find out.
If you don't have a meteohub platform to test with yet,
you can install the Meteohub vm and play with it.

The reason that I am asking is very simply. I don't want to harm the meteohub software in any way. So how do I adjust the
/srv/www/index.html file for thttpd?

Code: Select all

<html>
<head>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh"
      CONTENT="0; URL=cgi-bin/meteohub.cgi">
</head>
</html>
in order to add a RESTful API?
