Yes folks, a dirt cheap Kindle Fire 7 inch tablet can run a web server! Is it perfect? Nope, but is it functional? Yes! I have yet to figure out how to keep it awake for more than 30 min, but if you were updating your main se…

You didn’t really think I would get a new device and not put a web server on it did you? As the header image says, this site is running right now on the Chuwi Hi12. Yes, it does g…
Teclast X3 Plus 2 in 1 Tablet PC
The Teclast X3 Plus is a 2 in 1 Tablet PC, running Windows 10 with 6gb of RAM. It comes with a decent 1920 x 1080 (FHD) 11.6 inch display and the big attraction is the Intel Celeron N3450 CPU…
I have only found a few minor items that don’t work on this WordPress install on a tablet using the KSWeb app. I just keep adding stuff on.
So far I have 8 plugins up and running. The only feature that doesn’t work is connecting the app to Facebook/Twitter via Jetpack sharing. That is because I am running on port 8080 instead of the default port 80. I am actually seriously considering moving my regular blog site onto a tablet when my old Linux server dies.
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.
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:
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.
You can also copy and paste the text below to a file. (just be sure it ends with .php .
<title>Manual Update for ChangeIP.com domains.</title>
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>
<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.
You will need to enter your user name and password.<br/>
If successful, you will see: <strong>200 Successful Update</strong><br/>
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.
