Hi, Bridgette!

Please login in to www.wunderground.com, and click on "My Profile" > "My Devices".  You will see a column "upload key" that has been added to the webcams, which will show as "N/A" at first.  Click on "edit" for your webcam, answer the question it asks, and it will take you to a display with information needed to set up the webcam again.  After your accept/deny and make sure everything on the page is okay, you will be taken back to the "My Devices" list, where the key will have populated.  This key will also appear on the edit page, to make it one easy screen shot if you go back to edit the upload protocol.

You need to go through the steps to make the key populate in order to get the key to make the upload work.  

If you have questions, feel free to ask here or via help@wunderground.com or https://feedback.weather.com/customer/portal/emails/new?b_id=17298

Thank you!
