Raspberry Pi Cluster Hosting - 50% Profits Donated

Hey everyone! I've been planning to build a RasPi cluster and to possibly turn it into a web hosting service. The cluster will allow for lots of redundancy and a load balancer, to allow for lots of traffic and bandwidth. However, given that I'm going to be using RasPi's and I'm a huge supporter of t...

Re: Pi Zero not outputting HDMI

Thanks for the replies and sorry for my late reply. I was checking out the HDMI port and noticed some solder bridged between the pins... I had a flashback to when I tried to desolder the HDMI port for a different project. Silly me. Anyway thanks for the help!

Pi Zero not outputting HDMI (Solved)

Hello, I am working on a portable retro game console with the Pi Zero but I have run into a problem. I purchased a mini-HDMI to HDMI adapter from Amazon ( http://amzn.to/2ixmrub ) so that I can setup RetroPie. However, when I plug in the cable to my TV there is no output. I have searched for hours a...

Re: Starting java swing after logging in

Is your problem that the shell script won't start the java swing or that you don't know how to make something boot at startup? If it's the second one I can help you: http://bfy.tw/8b7y If it's the first one could you please post the code you tried for the shell script? There might be an error in that.

Re: Pi Zero: cheapest way to add fast internet

What about a USB Gig Ethernet adapter? That might give 300 Mbps or so (I think). I use an Anker one on a Pi3 with good results. The Odroid C2 (40$) has gige directly connected to the SoC giving well over 900 Mbps. I think I might use a USB Gig Ethernet, and 300 Mbps should be right because USB 2.0 ...

Re: Pi Zero: cheapest way to add fast internet

Why would you use wifi right next to the router? Sorry, I forgot to mention but my walls are made of brick which can weaken the signal in certain parts which is not the ISP's fault. so there won't be as many "external influences". If they are supposedly selling you 200Mbps, doesn't that mean you co...

Re: Home Security System

If you can't get your hands on enough Pi Zeros than I would recommend using a dedicated one for each camera and then you could do a central one that monitors all of the pictures and uploads them to a website or something...

Re: Pi Zero: cheapest way to add fast internet

Thanks for the reply. However, the main reason I am doing this is to see if my ISP is providing me the service I am paying for, which is 200Mbps. They almost never do but I want to see by how much and log it. Because of this, I am going to have it right next to my router... Do you think it might wor...

Re: Kill an automatic program at startup while it is running

Do you just want to edit the rc.local file from the Pi? If so, you can do that by running this command: sudo nano /etc/rc.local If you want to edit the rc.local file from your PC, it's a little trickier. The problem is that your PC uses a different file system than Linux (which uses ext4), which mea...

Re: Wordpress server

To broadcast anything publicly you need to do something called port forwarding. Port forwarding does make a hole in your security but you should be okay... If you are very conscious about security, you might not want to do this, though. I recommend using this guide: https://pimylifeup.com/raspberry-...

Certain packages require dependencies which are other pieces of software that the package requires to run. From what I can tell, this is saying that you need to install mysql-server-5.5.

Re: Pi Zero and 2.4" Adafruit Touchscreen

Thanks! The only problem is that I was hoping to get away without having to buy a Micro-USB to USB cable. Any chance of a ready-to-go image? Also at the end you said I would still need to configure the touch panel... does this mean the touchscreen won't work? If so, how do I configure it?

Re: RPi Zero Audio Jack No Breadboard

The HAT looks good because of it's small size. Only problem is expense (trying to minimize cost as much as possible). I might look around for a really small USB sound card. Thanks! If anyone else has any ideas those are appreciated.

Do you need it to be a shield because there are plenty of 8-channel USB DACs and sound cards (you only need 6 channels).

Re: RPi as SSH server

You can portforward you router to have Port 22 open. Head over to http://portforward.com/ and find your router to get instructions for doing this. Than you can just ssh to your pi's new PUBLIC IP Address which you can find by googling on your pi what is my ip.
