Re: How to install nZEDb on RPI

Hi Dougie,

Cracked it!

The following code needed to be added to the /etc/apache2/apache2.conf file.

Code: Select all

<FilesMatch \.php$>
SetHandler application/x-httpd-php
</FilesMatch>

Now my .php files work a treat.

Hi Dougie, Thanks for your reply.

USB to Serial Adapter Pi2

Can anyone recommend a USB to Serial (9 pin D) adapter for the Raspberry P2 that definitely works?

I am pulling my hair out trying to get a couple (a PL2303 & QinHeng Electronics HL-340) working which I now believe are not compatible with my Pi.

Many thanks.

Hi scruss, thanks for your hints. I've tested the device on Windows and 4800 8N1 is what the GPS is using.

Re: Corrupted text received from Serial Port

Okay guys, thanks again.

The attached pic shows where I got the pin numbers from.

And I have made progress. A new USB to GPIO lead works a treat therefore proving that not one but both original adapters are faulty!

I have ordered replacements.

Thanks for all your suggestions.
