I did see something about disabling DTR in perl while googling, but couldn't find anything relevant to php.
I may check out perl, though i know nothing about it.
I didnt know anything about php till yesterday though lol. So i'll check your script, and see what i need to use perl.
Thanks much, i'll let you know if i end up switching over, or if i find another fix.
EDIT - What language is that? so i can try to have it translated
Right now, i send a request for data to the arduino, then i receive it, im also sending some other commands to it via php as well, some inputs.
Something i was thinking about though, if/when i scale this up, to more communication and variables, i was wondering if i i will need to switch to a stand alone program monitoring and sending the data to the arduino, with a database inbetween that program and php side of things.
Im truly brand new to all of this, so im just thinking outloud at this point.
