Edimax as webserver with amilda?

Hi!

Is it possible to use the edimax with amilda as a webserver? I would do this in a (test) project at school.
How can I install ssh, apache (httpd is installed), mysql or other things to amilda?
Is it difficult to do? What I have to know to install things like ssh, mysql? => Version? How to install?

My English is very bad, but I work on it...

Theorically speaking it can be done. However, due to space constraints, it can't. If we manage to get USB working, we can make this and many other projects.

Regards,

Re: Edimax as webserver with amilda?

I read about the USB problem. I hope you will get USB working.

You do a great job!!! I think I have to learn much about Linux before I can do modifications on it...

Re: Edimax as webserver with amilda?

I am curious - none of AMiLDA, Sergio, and Norocketscience forums have a working USB memory stick/hard drive add on.

Yet J Domburg's firmware boots off USB memory (http://sprite.student.utwente.nl/~jeroe … _tutorial/).

I am not yet into the kernel but wonder if Domburg has a trick you are all missing?
Those who got here from Elektor magazine are very keen to see extensions to the Domberg firmware to address the I/O ports.

Is there a Linux expert here who could visit the hardware system hobbyists and give us some help?
please see http://www.sunspot.co.uk/Projects/sweexproject.htm

Re: Edimax as webserver with amilda?

Does Sweex have distributors in the US?  My curiosity is piqued now, but I can't find any for sale on this side of the pond.

He used the Edimax 2.4.18 kernel sources with usb support for this firmware.
If you cannot find a working 2.4.32 usb driver for your usb devices, use the 2.4.18 kernel.

All ADM5120 specific code from this kernel was already succesfully ported by various people to the 2.4.32 kernel. The main problem is that porting the USB code from 2.4.18 to 2.4.32 without additional changes results in a non-working driver (at least for my USB card reader, printer and harddisk).

I recently managed to get the 2.4.32 driver working for my three usb devices (on a Sweex LB000021), but it does not work for everyone...

You may try to replace the Amilda usb sources with mine, but I cannot guarantee that it works for you.
(see: http://www.scintilla.utwente.nl/~marcel … sb-2.4.32/)
For Amilda rename to usb-ahci.c/h.

Tested on a vanilla 2.4.32 kernel form kernel.org patched with the following two files:
http://www.scintilla.utwente.nl/~marcel … illa.patch
http://www.scintilla.utwente.nl/~marcel … shci.patch


2x Sweex LB000021 with USB mod 2 serial ports and LCD; Linksys WRT54G

Re: Edimax as webserver with amilda?

What's the current status on using the Edimax Router with USB-Mod with a pen-disk or usb-hdd as a web-server ?

I wanted to mod my Edimax router to add the USB port, but I wanted to be sure that before I went and do it, that it would work...  hmm

I want to use the Edimax as a web-server, not just for the intranet, but also accesible from the internet, is this possible ? I want at least to be able to have static HTML pages with pictures on it, but in the future I might want to add php and mysql support to add phpbb forum for me and some friend, since we need a web-server, but something that doesn't consumes to much power and I can't afford to have the pc turned-on 24h/7days-a-week/365days-a-year...  wink

Please reply guys. Thanks smile

P.S: What's the best tutorial to add USB port to the router ? Elektor's ? Other? Thanks

Re: Edimax as webserver with amilda?

I put up some notes at http://www.sunspot.co.uk/Projects/sweexproject.htm
(as a new user) - see menu item 5 ref booting from USB.

- but it is all Midge not Amilda....

It is intended for interfacing external hardware and still lacks several features, but when I understand php etc I will add it - all help to enhance the tutorials is much appreciated.

It is quite hard to start from zero by just reading posts here and at Midge and Norocketscience - hence the "new user" notes.
