Can anyone help me fix WiFi connection on wlan0

Hi,

I am relatively new user with the pi.
I have just installed tightvncserver, after my next reboot I have been unable to connect wirelessly.
When I run the if config command I can only see eth0.
When I run lsusb I can see my wireless adaptor listed.

Can anyone offer some help?

Thanks
Andy

GPIO to MySql

Hi there -

I would like to periodically read the status of a pin and write its value to a field in a MySql database.
I have only ever made queries to MySql using PHP - would this be possible from C?
Or can I write PHP code that reads the status of thge GPIO pin?
