Re: How do I add content to apache

A permissions problem. This is very common. As with later versions of Windows, Linux files and folders can have "owners," user and user-group permissions /var/www plus any files you put there must be changed to owner www-data, group www-data and given read/write permission for these two. You'd find ...

Re: One happy but confused R.Pi user.

You would do better with advanced problems reading up on the developers site. However the answer is; The postfix format 192.168.0.1/8 follows a general networking standard method of defining sub-networks. The number after the slash actually refers to the subnet mask not a direct range of I.P.'s/ It ...

Re: How do I add content to apache

Usually it's in /var/www for the default. If you are running virtual hosts it could be anywhere.

Re: Nas

Yes that should do it.

Once samba is running correctly you will be able to use its hostname to connect to it from windows too.

If you have any error messages then Google them for a solution

Re: Nas

Certainly. An access point in client mode is by far the most easy as they will work without drivers and will offer more features. You can put a cable directly from the Pi to the access point. If the other machines you want to share to are on a wireless network already through a router it will be easy.

Re: Tip for command line / terminal use

Use the * with care! I guess changing directory is not that big of a deal but using it when you delete stuff could go horribly wrong, since typing rm na* would delete every file in that folder starting with na! Only use * when you need to refer to more than one file. Using the auto complete option ...

Tip for command line / terminal use

Well since there is no "tips" section I'll have to put such things here. When you download a software source package they often have rather convoluted file names after you have unpacked it. Often the developer will get a bit carried away with the Dewey decimal version description. For instance "name...

Not for me, I have no use for it. Owncloud plays mp3 if I ever wanted to. Besides a continuous usage process would probably affect the serious stuff it's doing.
Better to dedicate a Pi for a job like that.

Re: apt-get upgrade and install new soft problem

It looks as though the mirror "mirror.de.leaseweb.net" was unavailable at the time. Trying again later should get an alternative mirror served up by the redirector.

What he said.

This pic is after everything is cached in RAM too.

Hitting 100% CPU while delivering content is perfectly normal for the Pi.

This machine is also running Roundcube and Owncloud.

Raspbian Wheezy. It is still quite compatible with the Debian core build.

Of course I did go pruning first as I have no use for things like Scratch.
