Re: My local website doesn't work and every time i ping localhost i see it's from ( : : 1), Help pls

The apache2 service starts as a service when your RPi boots. If you try to run apache2 again, that is the output you will get.

Edit: try this to check the status of apache2.

Code: Select all

sudo service apache2 status
It should show active (running).

did you install the bridge methods? No. I used the NAT setup. Did you use the bridge? How did you set your network settings? Edit: Tried with the bridge setup, and it works also.

Re: Setting WiFi static IP

You can set static network settings for a specific ssid, like the one at your home, and get dhcp settings for the rest, like work or school.
In /etc/dhcpcd.conf:

Code: Select all

ssid YourSSID
static ip_address=192.168.0.200/24
static routers=192.168.0.1
static domain_name_servers=8.8.8.8

OK, so you are using a standalone (NAT) AP. That would have been the first example. Your subject line was misleading.

Re: Wifi stopped working

If you are using a RPi3B+, you must be running Stretch version. If so, you shouldn't have any additional entries in /etc/network/interfaces. Any static network settings should be done in /etc/dhcpcd.conf.

It appears to be a routing problem. Both eth0 and wlan0 have the same localnet. 192.168.13.x. With the same size localnet (255.255.255.0), the smallest metric (eth0) will have routing priority.

AFAIK, the newest Chromium browser is broken for armhf. That is v69. I tried using Chromium v67, but it runs like a slideshow. My v65 runs ok. Yes, it definitely is. I'm running 65.0.3325.181 right now, and it's absolutely broken. I'm running the same v65, and I can run 720p videos on YouTube fine.
