Re: Config question for MiniDlna (RPi4)

I tested it, and the inotify is working well with symlinks. Maybe do a service minidlna restart when the LG TV is on, and see if the new server appears. You can do a refresh on the clients as well, so the new files should be there. I have a Samsung TV, so I changed the notify_interval 's value to 9...

Re: Config question for MiniDlna (RPi4)

Unfortunately I have run into another problem with the sym-linked configuration: When new videos are added into the original directories they do appear when I do an ls inside the symlinked dir as well as in the original dir. But on the SmartTV the new videos do not appear at all! Only the previously...

Re: Config question for MiniDlna (RPi4)

Now all folders within the top folder are shown including log and php (the video store is a website too)... If I navigate into them there is no media shown (empty folder) so that is OK, but is there a way to hide some folders from view? This is the Browse Director y container, which is similar to t...

Config question for MiniDlna (RPi4)

I am setting up an RPi4 (2GB RAM) as a DLNA server on my home network to serve out videos to my SmartTV. But I am having problems configuring the minidlna server to show the media sensibly...

Re: speedtest difference Windows-RPi4

But as pointed out by early replies (by asavah) to this thread the speedtest-cli one gets with apt is outdated and buggy especially for upload. When I apt remove'd the speedtest-cli and then used pip or pip3 to install directly from the python repository it solved the problems regarding the reported...

Re: speedtest difference Windows-RPi4

I got version 2.1.2 when using pip. Now I have done this to rectify the pip/pip3 difference.: sudo pip uninstall speedtest-cli sudo pip3 install speedtest-cli Turns out that the new speedtest-cli is again version 2.1.2. So no difference here. But I had removed the symlink I put into ~/bin earlier to...

Pretty much an Debian-based install procedure will work. It doesn't have to be Pi specific.
OK so I found this how-to that said it is fully updated 2019.
Followed it for all steps until phpadmin and it worked fine!

Re: install Mysql-Server and client, php5, apache

Last point, the above instructions are for Raspbian Buster. If you are trying to apply them to a different OS then you are unlikely to get support for that here. I noticed the title of the thread saying php5 even though it was started 2019-08-06... I know that php5 is no longer supported so install...

I was going to set up LAMP on my new RPi4 and looked up some howto pages. It seems like the MySql part is most often referencing MariaDB rather than MySql, why? If I install MariaDB will things work out of the box anyway or are there new commands like maria rather than mysql on the command line etc?...

If the pi is in the same room as you are working from , you could just attach a set of powered speakers, and set the audio output to the 3.5mm audio jack in raspi-config. then you have audio and can still work via VNC I will test that when I get home. Maybe I can even connect earphones instead so n...
