Our mayfly has been moved to a new location. I’ve created a new site registration on MMW but when I try to upload data (CSV format, 1 week’s data) I get the following error message: “Failed to upload data. This file corresponds to another site.”
I don’t have access to the log-in or site data for the previous site because the person who set it up doesn’t work here any longer.
The data file on your Mayfly’s memory card contains the UUID information for the original station, so even though you’ve moved the station to a new physical location and created a brand new site on MMW for the new location, the data file still contains the UUID codes that correspond to the original MMW site, and the database is smart enough to prevent people from manually uploading data from the wrong stations. You’ll need to reprogram your Mayfly board using the Arduino IDE, and paste the UUID codes from your newly-created MMW site into the appropriate section of the Arduino code. Once you do that, you’ll be able to manually upload the data correctly.
