 +====== Install the Leuven-Template step 5 of 7 ======
 +There are seven steps to follow described in this "How to"
 +  - Upload the needed scripts to the root of your website ​
 +  - Set the permissions of the folders ​
 +  - Test the web-server environment ​
 +  - Manually change the settings files 
 +  - **You are here now**
 +  - Adapt menu items 
 +  - Almost finished ​

 +===== What to upload and how to do that  =====
  
 +==== For current template users ====
 +<WRAP alert >
 +To all users of a a previous version installing this new release at the same webserver:​\\ ​
 + 
 +The new uploads for this release should go to the same folder as your current release uploads.</​WRAP>​
 +
 +Then you can switch back and forth between old and newer versions, ​
 +between a current version and one you are just using for testing scripts, a.s.o.
 +
 +Some user have three versions, ​
 +  - their production version => weather2/
 +  - a test version for a new release ​ => weather26/  ​
 +  - and a copy of the production version ​ => weather2test/,​to mess around and try things without bringing their full production website down with 1 typo in php 
 +
 +All data is uploaded to their 1 and only upload folder, can be 
 +  - the root,
 +  - weather2/​uploadXX/ ​ or 
 +  - data/   as some do to share with other templates or scripts.
 +
 +Example:
 +Your current release is in  weather2/ and your weather-program uploads to upload??/ (?? = your weahterprogram codeas used by this template).
 +
 +You installed this release in weather27/ and tested it changing the settings.
 +
 +You set your upload location settings now to the  "​old"​ location "​../​weather2/​upload??/" ​
 +
 +If you are finished with testing: ​
 +  - only once you copy the contents of  weather2/​upload??/​ to weather27/​upload??/​
 +  - and then rename weather2/ to weather2old/ ​  and weather27/ to weather2/
 +
 +Just to be sure and to be able to still run the "​old"​ release, ​ change the upload location in the old release
 +weather2old/ ​ also to "​../​weather2/​upload??/"​.
 +
 +It sounds like extra work, but it is very handy. ​
 +You only have to instruct **once** the weatherprogram to upload to one location (as long as you are on the same webserver)
 +Newer versions 27, 27a, 27b, 28 can be tested easily, renamed if needed to weather2/ or removed when you skip a new release.
 +
 +So as a current experienced user you read the folowing pages with a translation table in your head. \\ 
 +Every time you see something like "<​wrap hi>​upload??/​ in the weather27/</​wrap>​ folder",​ you read it as
 + <​wrap hi>my current upload location/ </​wrap>​
 +
 +<WRAP center round info 60%>
 +When uploading works, leave it as is. Always!
 +</​WRAP>​
 +
 +==== Introduction to uploading ====
 +The following pages describe the data-files needed by your template scripts to do their job and in what frequency they are uploaded:
 +
 +  * ** Weather values for general use**
 +    * General weather-data values for today and available history - normally every 5 minutes
 +    * Optional the weather-data values of yesterday if not available in the previous file - once a day
 +  * **Weather values for realtime use**
 +    * At least once a minute a file with more recent values need to be uploaded to let the realtime parts "​move"​
 +  * **Graphs** as displayed on a separate stations page and whicxh are also used in the Steelseries pop-ups. Steelseries worden gebruikt
 +
 +<wrap hi>Not every weather-program is able to deliver all.</​wrap>​
 +
 +There is a separate page with instructions for every supported weather-program. Select the link for your weather-programn below.
