I have implemented the Raspberry Pi logging and it seems to work most of the time. However sometimes the it doesn’t record the logging data. The Sprinklers.php shows a station is running but with zero time elapsed. However sometimes it does work and correctly log times.
Not very well versed in Linux, but I have changed the line in rc.local from:
(Dan – note there is a typo in your blog: zoneckeck.py)
ie – a fully qualified path to python
There seems to be some suggestion that the path may (or may not) be fully initialised when rc.local is run.
Anyway I’ll run for a while and see how it goes.
