I contacted my host BEFORE I purchased and asked if I signed up can I install XTide the support/sales rep said yes…long as it runs on Linux I can install it…So I pay for the year…Go to look for telnet or SSH to install and a big NO they don’t offer that - so it would appear I don’t think I can install it. Mind you I am not an expert on Linux or its installs. The rep keeps telling me ‘upload it via FTP then install’ and I say how do I install without a command prompt? and he says - you’re not able to run any command
Does anyone know of a host that will get this up and running for me? I’m not 100% sure how to use the software once I have it I know it runs some xttpd server that you pass commands to in order to get a response. I’ve got it installed locally.
The gist of this is I’m running a surf report site and I need access to reliable tide data and I want to control the format I don’t want to pull the data and advertise for somebody else.
