Do NOT miss the April Deals From Gearbest.Com!    This Server is Running on a Zotac ZBox CI323 Mini PC!

Tweaking the BIOS on The HiBook Was a Great Idea. However It Caused an Issue That Was Easily Fixed.

By Tim

Back in February I wrote about tweaking the BIOS on the Hibook and later about running some Geekbench tests on it. I have also mentioned in followup posts about having issues with my LogiTech wireless mouse.

After doing so…

So While the Cubs Were WINNING the World Series, I Installed Linux Mint on the Asus Notebook

By Tim

Previously, to be specific, last night, while watching the Cubs, I tried out a full Debian install on the Asus X553SA notebook. It never was really useful for my purposes no matter which desktop I tried.

So tonight, as the…

A followup on running a Tablet based WordPress server.

You can indeed run a small scale WordPress server on a tablet. If you couldn’t you would not be reading this. After about a month of running this site I have reached the conclusion that a small business with a fixed IP address from the…

I Decided We needed a Video On The Zotac CI323 in Windows 10 and Here It Is!

By Tim

Obviously not the greatest video ever produced and I still need to purchase a microphone, but it actually turned out okay.

I will also point out that this was all done using free software and the editing was done in Linux….

Today’s Project -Ulti Server App

Today I will be testing out the Ulti Server app on my ASUS tablet.

I will check and see if it is useful or not and report back later today or tomorrow. It doesn’t appear to have been updated recently, but it still may be worth a look.

 

Update: 14July2014 1:39 pm 

Although the Ulti server installed and was easy to setup I ran into problems running WordPress. That was probably due to the fact that you can only run 2 servers at a time in the demo mode. That means that I can’t say for sure that it could run WordPress. I am hesitant to purchase any software that I can’t fully test so I am going to have to give this one a thumbs down.

If anyone has run a WordPress site on this app, please leave a comment and let me know.

Easy update if you use Changeip.com

30July2014: A quick update,  If your IP changes a lot and you want to check it while sleeping you can install Dynamic DNS Update from Ice Cold Apps. It works very well (at least in my testing so far). If you don’t need to update very often, then the info below will work just fine for you.

I use changeIP.com for my DNS services for my KSWeb app powered tablet web server and it works well.  However it is a pain to login to their website and manually change the IP address.

So last night I wrote this little php page to make it easier. It gives you your local IP and your external IP addresses. When you need to update you merely click the link and enter your username/ password. Boom! Your IP is updated just like that.

I have taken the page and zipped it for easy download.  Just extract it and put it on your server and run from:

http://localhost:8080/whateveryounameit.php.

The download link is at the bottom of this article.

It is probably a good idea to rename it and place it in a folder where folks won’t find it since it will give folks info on both your internal and external addresses.

Download the php script(page) right here.

You can also copy and paste the text below to a file. (just be sure it ends with .php .

<html>
 <head>
 <title>Manual Update for ChangeIP.com domains.</title>
 </head>
 <body>
 Your Current Internal IP is: <strong><?php echo $_SERVER['SERVER_ADDR']; ?></strong><br/>
Your External IP is: <strong><?php echo file_get_contents('http://checkip.dyndns.com/'); ?></strong>
<p>
<a href="https://nic.changeip.com/nic/update?cmd=update&set=1">Click here to update</a> the KsWeb IP Address to the one above. 
<p>
You will need to enter your user name and password.<br/>
If successful, you will see: <strong>200 Successful Update</strong><br/>
<p>
Make sure your settings on ChangeIP.com have the correct "set" selected for your tablet.<br/>
Just use set 1 if you only have one domain.

If you have any questions, let me know.

I have been playing with Drupal and it isn’t too bad.

Although it is completely different from WordPress Drupal could actually be a pretty decent Content Management System for use on an Android based server.

I recently tried installing a new theme and playing with it and it wasn’t too difficult. Not nearly automatic by any means but easily installed.

You can take a peek here.

I really need a CuBox!

CuBox Mini Computer
CuBox Mini Computer

The more research I do on these CuBox mini-PC’s the more convinced I am that I need one to replace my very old Linux server running at home on an ancient 1ghz Duron processor.

Perhaps some day I can get those folks at Solid-Run to send me one for testing, but in the meantime I shall have to save my pennies.

I poked around on YouTube and found several videos on the CuBox.  Most of them were quite positive. This little gizmo is now on my “must have” list.

If you don’t want to tie up your tablet or phone as a server there is another inexpensive option out there. It is called the CuBox and it is a tiny computer that fits in the palm of your hand.

 

The device is loaded with features and can run Android or Linux if you choose. The pro version has 2gb of ram and a quad core processor.  It has a wired ethernet and a wireless 11n, built in. Video output is via HDMI and it has 2 usb ports and an eSATA port. It also has an microSD card slot.

Depending on the version you choose the price varies from about $80 to $140.

Check out some of the reviews online. (Just google it).
