A while ago, the University of Maryland changed its MODIS data format.
As a result the Global Fire Display and Fire Index no longer worked.
Debugging on the working server was impossible, because of its active running state, with scripts popping up every minute.
A simple backup of the server could not be installed on my laptop as a second operating system for debugging purposes.
Because of other demands on my time, it took a while before I could configure a virtual machine to run the web server on.
This has now been done and the MODIS data display is debugged.
