#85770 Stupid question.....

I've got an ESP running ESPBASIC constantly transferring data from weather sensors in the garden to a server. Let's say I want to tweak the ESPBASIC program e.g. to add another sensor. How do I stop the program running so I can log into the ESP and edit it?

I could simply reset the ESP or power cycle it but I want to set it to run the program at startup so that it continues to work if the power is interrupted in normal operation.

The only way I can think of doing it in theory is to connect the ESP to my computer, reinstall ESPBASIC and type in the program again with the modifications, which of course is ridiculous.

Actually I think I've managed to log in in such a scenario in the past by repeatedly power cycling/ logging in but surely there is a more elegant way.
