Re: Setting up a public FTP site?

You have asked two questions: Setting up a website, and setting up a public ftp site - two different things, but they can work together as well. Is there any reason you want to use ftp in particular? Http downloads are fine, and if you just want a few files up for download, and you already have a w...

Setting up a public FTP site?

I want to set my Pi up to host a website like this so I can set certain files on my Pi to be easily accessible over the internet to other people. Can someone direct me to a guide on this, or at least give me a brief outline of the procedure?

How can I test SD card speed?

I want to see how fast my SD card operates on the Raspberry Pi. How do I do this? Also, in your experience, what's the fastest card out there? I'm not doing anything that needs a lot of storage, so anything as low as 4GB would be fine with me.

Re: USB power drop on RPv2

I'm having a similar problem with mine. It was working fine for a while (had USB WiFi up long enough to update everything and do some other setup tasks over SSH) the first day I had it. After that, USB went out, and each time I try to use it, any USB devices lose power after just ~2-3 minutes. I've ...

I'm having the same problem too. Even with just a keyboard+ethernet+composite video cable plugged in, all the USB devices seem to fail after a few minutes. The Pi itself continues to run though, and still outputs video. I've even had this problem with only a USB Wifi adapter plugged in. Another non ...

I have my Pi set up to connect to my network through Wifi with a USB Wifi adapter.

Re: Quickest way to get a single command to run at startup?

I've found that if both eth0 and wlan0 are set to static, then each has to have the appropriate lines following it. Also, you don't have the "auto wlan0" line and you don't have the lines for the SSID and encryption key for the wireless connection. I'm surprised that it connects at all. Here is my ...

You really shouldn't have to issue that command to get your wifi up. Do you have the line "auto wlan0" in your interfaces file? I do. However I set it up so that it could have a static IP address. When I set it to DHCP, I don't get this problem. The contents of the interfaces file are: auto lo ifac...

For some reason, my WiFi won't connect unless I run sudo ifup wlan0 right at startup.

Re: Pi crash + voltage spike (over T1/T2) w/ only 2 mins. up

A rise to 5.1 volt shouldn't cause a crash, as 5.1 Volt is a perfectly acceptable voltage for the PI to operate with. Up to 5.25 Volt is acceptable! I do think it just means that the PI draws a less lot current than normal when that happens, and that causes less losses in cables and such. In "opera...

Does this mean that it needs a minimum of 0.7A, or that 0.7A is the maximum current it will ever need? 3. I have a 1...

It's a bit convoluted AFAIK , but it does work.
There is a guide for Android mobiles somewhere.
Would that just be connecting the PC to the Pi directly with a USB cable, and accessing it in that way?

This is normal and is exactly what is supposed to happen. The Raspian Image writes just under 2GB of data to your card.
