Hello all, and regards,
I am attempting to build a system in which a webpage is hosted by the linino side of the Yun, and is accessible from any browser on the local network, and/or with a password. I have built a website which can communicate with the Yunserver through REST, does anyone know how exactly to host that website on the Linino side of the Yun? Previously I have opened my HTML doc from my local computer. Is there any way to maintain that the website is only accessible from the local network?
I can ssh into the linino through putty, and am building my website from scratch, learning as I go.
Apologies if the way I'm saying this is wrong or confusing, I will be checking often for responses.
Also I am new to the tech world, and the Arduino Yun is really cool but also daunting.
Forgive me if I have no idea what I'm talking about.
Thank you all in advance!
EDIT: for anyone else interested, there's a really great resource available at: http://scuola.arduino.cc/courses/lessons/view/b4EoRkV
I understand how the process works now. My next hurdle is getting past an 'access denied' that occurs both when I attempt to SSH, and when I upload via the Arduino IDE. There has been a discussion about this issue before in the forums, at
However, my terminal does not recognize the ln -s command, thus I am still working with the issue.
Any further input appreciated, all past input was extremely helpful, I am much obliged.
EDIT 2: My webpage is now up and running, and accessible from any computer on my network - thanks again to everyone who helped.
The problem was that the files /mnt/sda1/arduino and /mnt/sda1/arduino/www were not created - I had assumed there were created with the update. The other issue is that previous users had fixed the problem by using ln -s /mnt/sda1/www/sd. I don't know how they resolved it this way, it didn't resolve my issue.
What fixed my problem and allowed my Yun to host a webpage, was the creation of the /arduino and /arduino/www files in the sd card, by using ln -s /mnt/sda1/arduino/www from my SSH terminal.
Please send me a message, or post to this thread if there's anything I might be able to help you with!
The above turned out to only be a temporary fix to the problem. To ensure that my sd card held the new os, it turned out to be much easier simply to use the usb port for alternative storage, and to create the /arduino/www files there.
Also beware, once you write a document to the www, you cannot overwrite the file of the same name. In order to update that file you must manually delete it, and then re-write your updated file.
