One of the first things wee_extension does is find weewx.conf and read it's
contents with configobj (a config file parser). wee_extension has found a
config file but configobj is finding errors in the file. Odd that it is finding
errors in different places for (you would expect) the same file. I assume you
have 3.8.0 running without error? The normal approach is to get weeWX running
without error before adding extensions/further customising. A couple of things
you can try if weeWX is otherwise running without error:
- Check weewx.conf, is there anything obviously wrong in the first few lines.
You upgraded from 2.6 but did you do a clean install or an upgrade, assume a
clean install if a different machine/OS. If you did a clean 3.8.0 install
weewx.conf should be good. You didn't copy weewx.conf from your old system did
you? That could cause problems.
- Try explicitly specifying weewx.conf when running wee_extension using the
--config option. Specify the full path to weewx.conf (take note of what weeWX
says in its startup log to ensure you and weeWX agree on where weewx.conf is.
If you don't use the --config option wee_extension looks for weewx.conf in the
usual places, perhaps it has picked up an old or invalid file that is not your
current weewx.cnf, could happen if if multiple installs have occurred on the
machine using different install methods.
If you have no luck do a wee_debug run
(http://weewx.com/docs/utilities.htm#wee_debug_utility) and post the output
checking for any sensitive info first, wee_does a good job at removing
sensitive info but it's not perfect. There is a chance wee_debug will have the
same problem as wee_extension, in which case just post a copy of weewx.conf but
you will need to manually remove sensitive info. Finally, what type of 3.8.0
install did you do on the new machine?
