Subject: Anyone else having problem with the weather plugin?

I have the weather plugin installed for quite a few months with no problem. Lately the data retrieved from the US weather website has caused the plugin to be uninstalled, sometimes a few times a day. Last weekend it crashed my index page completely prompting a http 500 internal server error. Without knowing the cause and not able to access the menu page, I reinstalled Geeklog and reinstalled the database but that didnot help, finally removing the weather plugin from the Mysql restored the site. Anythoughts, anyone?

The weather plugin is dependent on an external service that provides weather data feeds. If that services is slow or not available, the weather plugin will by default attempt to un-install itself (block only).

The main configuration file for the Plugin contains parameters that dictate what actions the plugin will take (if any) in the event that the weather service is down. See the readme file for more information.

Hi Squatty,
Thanks for your reply.
It is not a big problem having to reinstall the weather block from time to time. The problem that occured on my site last week is different. My index page crashed completely. The http 500 internal server error suggests that the data received from the weather service website corrupted the php code. I like to find out if anyone else had the similiar problem.

The error on the error.log:

Fri Jul 2 07:45:10 2004 - 1064: You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'order by date desc, hour desc, minute desc limit 60' at line 1. SQL in question: select page, uid, username, ip, host, referer, query_string, year, month, day, hour, minute, request from order by date desc, hour desc, minute desc limit 60
