PHP Scripts

Below are some PHP scripts I have written or modified for use on this site and for others to use on their web sites.

Requirements:


For those using my scripts, change
  • 12th Dec 2017 - Old links appear to be working again, so no need to change anything
  • 10th Dec 2017 - data url changed from $ftp_server = "ftp://ftp.swpc.noaa.gov/pub/latest/DSD.txt";
    To
    $ftp_server = "http://services.swpc.noaa.gov/text/daily-solar-indices.txt";

  • Also the last qtr script no longer has a data file to download from swpc, so remove
