I have today noticed what appears to be a recent change on the SotaData site is causing a problem for updating the database for my SOTA CSV Editor (it worked on 14th January the last time I updated my own Database).
The problem is that the download of SummitsList.csv from the http version of the SotaData site redirected to the https version of the site and the curl library used in SOTA CSV Editor is unable to validate the SSL Certificate and so generates an Error (Errorcode 60).
Until I can manage to fathom out how to make the curl library accept the SSL Certificate for SotaData site, the following process will be required to update the Database for SOTA CSV Editor:
- Ensure that SOTA CSV Editor is closed
- Using you favourite web browser go to the https://www.sotadata.org.uk/summits.aspx page or https://newsotadata.sota.org.uk/en/summit/list, at the bottom click the link to download the Summits List and Save the file in your ‘SOTA Logs’ folder (replacing the exsiting one).
- Click the Windows Start Menu and look for ‘SOTA CSV2MDB’ and open it, this should find the downloaded Summits list and use that to update the Database.
- You can then use SOTA CSV Editor as normal.
