Tomcat on my Pi

Posted by PEarle May 2, 2014
I decided to install Tomcat on my Pi and see what the performance is like.   First thing to do is make sure I have got the latest version of all my currently installed function - e.g. use command   sudo apt-get update   Step 1 - Install Java   Java installation is very straightforward with the following command   sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-jdk   Once that has finished you can check that Java installed correctly  with the command java -version ...
I recently got hold of a Wolfson Audio card and did a bit of trial recording using the command line - see http://www.element14.com/community/community/raspberry-pi/raspberrypi_projects/blog/2014/04/06/wolfson-audio-project. That all works fine - but what I want to be able to do is use use my Pi as a mini-recorder, which means operating on its won, away from a monitor/screen/internet connection, etc. I decided that, as I have a smart phone with a browser, if I could create a network connection b ...
This article assumes that you have already successfully installed your Wolfson audio card - if you haven't done that yet, there is an excellent blog by cstanton  at http://www.element14.com/community/community/raspberry-pi/raspberry-pi-accessories/wolfson_pi/blog/2014/03/14/can-you-hear-the-wolfson-calling-setting-up-and-using-the-wolfson-audio-card   Once you have your card set up you will want to start recording with it. Like may people, I run my card 'headless' via a Putty shell, ...

Pi Webpage Reboot

Posted by PEarle Apr 2, 2014
I have recently set up a LAMP Raspberry Pi and am using this at work to monitor some servers (see Raspberry PI as a LAMP server and PI as a Web Server Monitor) I'm running it 'headless' (i.e. without a keyboard or mouse attached). This is fine until I wanted to reboot it yesterday, and realised that I would have to go through the hassle of opening a Putty session, connecting to the server, logging on, and issuing the reboot command. How convenient it would be if i could just click on a web link ...

PI as a Web Server Monitor

Posted by PEarle Mar 20, 2014
In my recent blog http://www.element14.com/community/community/raspberry-pi/raspberrypi_projects/blog/2014/02/24/raspberry-pi-as-a-lamp-server I described how I went about setting up my Pi as a LAMP server. like most people, once I had got this working, I needed to work out something useful to do with it! here at work we have a couple of servers that we use for developing/testing web code, and these come up and down during the day as new builds are deployed, etc. Its sometimes a pain when they a ...
    I decided to set up my Raspberry PI as a dedicated LAMP server. (LAMP is an acronym that stands for LinuxApacheMysqlPhp and are components required to run a Dynamic HTML webpage.).   All these components are Open Source ;   Apache is the webserver that will host my applications - for more information see http://www.apache.org/. MySQL is "the world's most popular Open Source database" (their own claim !) - more information here http://www.mysql.com/ PHP is "a popular ...
