Re: LAMP setup on Pi 3

I've done this several times before even using a Pi B. There will only be a few people accessing the site, so I don't need anything fancy. The main problem I'm incurring now is the switch to PHP7. All of the LAMP setup instructions I find assume PHP5 or 5.x. I just looked for instructions for NGINX ...

LAMP setup on Pi 3

I just installed the latest raspbian on my Pi 3 and I'm trying install apache2, mysql, php and phpmyadmin. Normally, when I "sudo apt-get mysql-server", during the process it ask for the password for user "root" but this time it didn't. It did ask for it while installing phpmyadmin but when I run it...

OK, I finally got Kodi to install. Now if I could just get it to play something!!! :mrgreen: :evil: :oops: Tried installing several video addons, such as WNBC. But no matter what I attempt to play, it either just pops back to where it was or hangs saying "Working".

Bluetooth problem

I'm using the latest "Pixel" Raspbian version on a Pi 3 and I have problems with BT. Neither my headset or bt speaker show when I click "add device". But if I plug in a CRC 4.0 dongle in a USB port, they show and connect. What do I need to get them to show with the built in BT?

Re: Pi and the anti-cloud

They just click an Icon on their Windows desktop to access the Pi. Got it about the written notes for on-site inspections....

Re: Pi and the anti-cloud

The Libreoffice tools are not 100% compatible with Microsoft Office or Office 365. I think that is why the Pi's are used only for web browsing and the Windows computers for everything else. It is probably not so difficult to convince a person to use a separate computer for the Internet after that p...

Why not just one on the office network (with a nanny filter)

Because a single Pi cannot handle the load of several people accessing the net at once.

The "Cloud" is just a fancy name for off site storage outside the Enterprise, NAS or SANS on the LAN. That is all that it is.

So you are using VNC to control a Pi over Bluetooth and then just use that Pi to browse/email/upload/download stuff to T'Internet? And presumably, some method of file sharing between the PC and the Pi? When you connect two PCs via Bluetooth, filesharing is built in. But if greater speed than that p...

Right now when you buy an HDMI monitor, the odds are that it is going to be "powered" via a 12v "brick". And you can buy a 19" one for about $80. Give me the same thing on...
