[HH#722767] simple site


HelioHost

Recommended Posts

Username: N/A, Server: N/A, Main Domain: N/A

I have a weather station that includes several JPG files. I don't know much
about setting up a web site. My old ISP hosted my weather station and was
very simple to set up. What I need is very simple easy step by step
instructions to upload this weather station to a site with my personal
domain name. Can you please help me?

Thanks

It's not possible for us to create new free accounts right now because our shared hosting licenses were revoked, and we're still working on switching to a new control panel. It shouldn't be much longer, but there is no ETA on when it will be done.

We do have VPS plans available right now, but they aren't free. They start at $4 per month for the basic Mercury plan. We can provide simple instructions for getting your weather station set up, or even do it for you if you want.

My weather station builds the site. I just have to provide the information
for where to send it. If you can send me instructions that will work I would
gladly pay $4/mo. I would want the name of the site to be "WA2UETwx". Could
I try to build it and get it to work before billing?

I can set you up with a free trial for 3 or 4 days on the Mercury VPS plan to see if you like it and then if you want to keep it we can arrange payment after that. We can provide the domain WA2UETwx.heliohost.us or WA2UETwx.helioho.st for no additional cost, or we could set you up with WA2UETwx.com for $8.98 for a year in addition to the $4 per month for the VPS. There are also .net, .org, .online, .site, etc etc domains available as well for various prices that we could host as well. We can't do a free trial for any of the paid domains though, but they can be added later if you want to try a free domain first and then add a shorter domain like a .com later. Let us know how we can help.

Sounds good to me. It is too late to start today but if you can send me
directions I will work on it tomorrow. The weather station builds the Index
file and includes all the JPG files etc. I just need stuff like "server
name" "user name" "password" maybe initial directory. I'm not sure what I am
doing and that is why I would like to try before I buy. The weather station
software is quite old and I think some of the entries are named differently
today. I put this together in 2004 so almost 20 years old.
Thanks

If you could go to

https://www.heliohost.org/vps/username/?mem=1&cpu=2&hdd=50&os=ubuntu20&sub=1month

and submit the username and password you would like to use, and then when it asks for payment just close the window instead of paying and reply to this email to let us know that you have submitted the credentials. Then I will build the VPS for you, send you the instructions on how to set up the weather station, and if everything works out we can get the payment figured out in 3 or 4 days. Thanks.

I did not get to "submit" that information. Not sure if you got it. If it is
easier I will simply fill the payment information and continue. I'm sure if
it does not work out I can cancel future payments.

I just signed up with the $4 subscription. If this does not work out for
some reason I will simply unsubscribe. Now I just need your help to get my
site going.
Thanks

will have questions.

An email has been sent to you with the details of how to log in to
your VPS and the FTP settings needed to upload your weather station site.
Let us know if you have any questions.

Feel free to reply to this email address support@heliohost.org or the Yash and my personal email addresses. Just keep in mind that support@heliohost.org is posted for all of our community to reply to so it may get an answer quicker, but you shouldn't post any private information to this address. Hitting reply-all to the welcome email with all the ip addresses and ports and everything will go only to Yash and I who are the main VPS admins for HelioHost.

I just went through the website builder setup for my VWS weather station.
When I got to login section I used the IP address you sent along with my
user name and password. When I clicked login the files were sent to the
internet. I used the "remote directory" string you gave me for "current
working directory" in VWS. I am using the domain name you gave me
"wa2uetwx.heliohost.us" to access the web site. I get the message "this site
is currently under construction" from chrome. Is this what should happen?
Does it take a while for the site to complete?

My weather station uploads files every 10 minutes! They are going somewhere
but apparently not the right place because when I try to log into the web
page I continue to get the message: "This site is currently under
construction".
