Re: Mysql --> installed and running, but i can not connect

Both answers are correct. In my experience however, you have to balance security with access rights. So exposing port 3306 to everyone is a bad choice. The best way is to SSH into the RPi and then access the MySQL db via localhost on port 3306. Btw, consider using MySQL Workbench as a graphical UI t...

Wordpress installation can't send emails

Hi I have been running a number of Wordpress sites based on a RPi 3 with SSD attached based on a previous version of Pestmeester's excellent guide (https://pestmeester.nl/index.html#10.0). I installed only the web server side, not the email solution. It has proven to be a secure, reliable and inexpe...

Re: OLED 16x2 HD44780 woes

Great to find this code. I am using it with the Adafruit 16x2 OLED display and it works nicely. I played around a bit and noticed, that some pins are not needed: # The wiring for the LCD is as follows: # 1 : GND # 2 : 5V # 3 : Contrast (0-5V)* # 4 : RS (Register Select) # 5 : R/W (Read Write) - GROU...

Re: Controlling a TV B-Gone with a Raspberry Pi

Thanks for the reply Dan, The other option would be to replace the battery itself with the pi. simply connecting positive to an addressable gpio pin, and negative to ground, you should be able to turn it on and off by sending the positive pin high and low. (hope that makes sence) I thought about tha...

Controlling a TV B-Gone with a Raspberry Pi

Adafruit's TV B-Gone kit ( http://www.adafruit.com/products/73 ) is such a simple device, yet so effective and provides plenty of silly joy. Here is what I would like to achieve: Connect a Pi to the network and run webiopi on it. One button let's you take a picture to see if the TV is on, the other ...

Re: Stepper motor problem

Hi, I had the exact same problem, but found an interesting solution to it: in those simple programs, the time interval is usually 0.5 secs. However, the 28BYJ-48 only makes a fraction of a degree turn per step. Hence, if you decrease the interval to e.g. 0.05 or less, you actually get an observable ...
