After using Weewx and Meteotemplate the past couple of years, I noticed that sometimes Weewx randomly stops updating and/or sending data to my Meteotemplate website, Twitter, and other services.

Sometimes, the fix is simply to run a software update on the Raspberry Pi and restarting the Raspberry Pi. Other times, directly restarting Weewx itself is the solution.

As per this page of this guide, run the software update in Terminal using these commands:

  1. sudo apt-get update (and press enter and wait until it’s done)
  2. sudo apt-get upgrade (and press enter and wait until it’s done)
  3. Then restart your Raspberry Pi. Type “sudo reboot” (w/o quotes) Or Start Menu > Shutdown > Reboot

To restart Weewx itself, open Terminal, and copy/paste this:

sudo /etc/init.d/weewx restart (and press enter)
