I have a data logger (electrical meter for a building) that is capable of pushing data to a server URL. The technical documents state that the logger uses HTML POST and it will transmit the data in XML format.
I have a Python script that I want try and use that will parse the data from XML to CSV, but I dont know what I need to do on the server to make it ready to accept the data.
Do I need to setup the server as an HTML server? Or what is the server side web development would need to be done in order to do this? Ultimately what I am trying to do is setup a server to continuously collect & log the data in a database.
Any recommendations for this would be greatly appreciated on setting up the server & database options... Ill also need to get some help from experience developers with this but I first need to know the basics!
