  1. Dear all, I am working on an embedded Linux platform with Lighttpd and PHP-7.0. My goal is using some HTML button and sliders to write some values on a local file. For example, if I click on a HTML button, I want to create and write a text file located in /home/$USER/ To do that, I build some files HTML <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1"> <title>AI-VISION</title> <style> </style> </head> <body> <form action="test1.php" method="POST"> <i
  2. Hi Dsonesuk, Thanks for your directive, but I don't know how to do that. Could you please give me a guidance according Javascript/PHP to take the value of the slider, and write it to my local disk ? Thanks
  3. Dear all, In my project, I am using an emebedded webserver LIGHTTPD with PHP. Within the main webpage, I use slider to write its value within a local file on my Linux OS. I wrote the slider like this: <input type="range" name="lightInputName" id="lightInputId" value="1" min="1" max="20" onchange="getvalor(this.value);" oninput="lightOutputId.value = lightInputId.value"> <input size="1" type="text" name="lightOutputName" id="lightOutputId"></input> What I want to do is to know if a javascript and/or PHP script is able to read the value of the slider, and cop
  4. Thank you for the informations.
  5. Unfortunately it doesn't work ! Even if I put the files inside /var/www/html...no luck. What kind of permissions do I need to set to be able to activate a shell script which will launch a program outside /var/www/html ?
  6. At least, one question: Using the base of the php script for writing a file, and using the same HTML page: PHP (test.php): <?php ini_set('display_errors', 1); ini_set('display_startup_errors', 1); error_reporting(E_ALL); $myfile = fopen("file.txt", "w") or die("Unable to open file!"); $txt = "writing test\n"; fwrite($myfile, $txt); fclose($myfile); ?> HTML (index.html): <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <style> </style> </head> <body> <form action="test.php" method="POST"> <input type="s
  7. Ok, some news from my tests: I did that: sudo usermod -a -G www-data <user> sudo chgrp -R www-data /var/www/html/ sudo chmod -R g+w /var/www/html/ After these modifications, when I launch the php script, I saw : Notice: Use of undefined constant  - assumed '' in /var/www/html/test.php on line 9 But the file was written in /var/www/html So I can say this solve the problem partially. Whatever, Thank you to all of you for your time, help and support Regards,
  8. Hi Luisrosety, Thank you for the help. I did all the steps you gave me, but no luck. Who is the user in /home/pi/www/test ? Is it root or www-data ? Actually, I delete and reinstall lighttpd and php7.0. The actual permissions and owner are root. Do I need to move to www-data like that : sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/html or sudo chown -R <user>:www-data /var/www/html
  9. Thanks Ingolme for the info. But it doesn't solve my problem. I am sure the HTML and PHP code are correct. When I launch the PHP in console mode, everything works fine. But when I launch it through HTML...nothing happen. So, I suppose there is some problems with the permissions, of Firefox is blocking something....I really don't know. I just want to activate a shell script from an html button...I must be easy no ?
  10. Thanks Luisrosety, I did it but nothing appears... The php script is : <?php ini_set('display_errors', 1); ini_set('display_startup_errors', 1); error_reporting(E_ALL); exec("/home/$USER/script"); ?> Is it possible that the web browser (Firefox) block some informations ?
  11. Ok, I tried your solution like this: <?php $myfile = fopen("/var/www/html/newfile.txt", "w") or die("Unable to open file!"); $txt = "testwriting\n"; fwrite($myfile, $txt); fclose($myfile); ?> The HTML file is like that: <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <style> </style> </head> <body> <form action="openApp.php"> <input type="submit" name ="value" value="Open Script"> </form </body> </html> But it still doesn't work. The access are the next: -rw-r--r-- 1 www-data www-data 173 déc. 6 1
  12. Ok, doesn't work...I don't what to do. I though it xas simple to build an HTML interface to write some data within a text file, but it isn't !!!! This is why I love C++ 😉 More seriously, is there is a way to understand what's going on with HTMl and PHP. I admit i'm really stuck with that !!! Thanks for your help and support
  13. Thanks dsonesuk, I will get a try to see what is going on
  14. This is the logs...I have some problems with the rights access: COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE/OFF NODE NAME lighttpd 716 www-data cwd unknown /proc/716/cwd (readlink: Permission denied) lighttpd 716 www-data rtd unknown /proc/716/root (readlink: Permission denied) lighttpd 716 www-data txt unknown /proc/716/exe (readlink: Permission denied) lighttpd 716 www-data NOFD /proc/716/fd (opendir: Permission denied)
  15. Not yet, but I will do it asap. Thanks for the info
