I don't know which gpio to plug it into Recent models of RPi board have 26 gpio pins available on the 40 way header on the board. Two are used by your existing code. ...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface ... button to control a motor

Hello... I know how to add buttons and edit the userbuttons file. Now, by clicking on a button, I would like to operate a DC motor with an L293. Don't mind about wiring. How do I configure those buttons to do this? A path to a solution would help me a lot. https://i54.servimg.com/u/f54/19/47/02/18/...

Re: Portable Power Bank for Raspberry Pi 3

I have been using power bank for a few years in monitoring devices without any problem related to the SD card. But I was probably lucky.... This is what I use, now: https://lifepo4wered.com/lifepo4wered-pi+.html with 2 batteries... or more if needed. No more stops that could cause an SD failure.

Basically just undo the changes you made.

Hard to say any more since you did not give any details about your AP setup...
In fact, nothing has been changed, I configured in AP mode directly on a new installation.
