PHP for PirateBox
June 10, 2012 12:52PM
I added the instruction for creating PHP support for PirateBox. [piratebox.aod-rpg.de]
Can someone check if this is working for him ( it tested it, but I don't used a PHP Based application like "dokuwiki" for testing).

Thank you smiling smiley

I installed my php on a relative fresh installed PirateBox and I was able to install a bunch of modules, too.
Can you please post your results of
df -h
That I can confirm, that you have the correct /mnt/ext "disc" size. Maybe you didn't overwrite it correctly or you have bunch of chunk installed in your extent-image... maybe you have to clean something up (by hand or with a reinstall)

Kenshen, you are doint it wrong.
you have to use:

opkg -d piratebox install php

then the install is redirected to /mnt/ext.

Here is some other change to make:

In /opt/piratebox/conf/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf:

change
static-file.exclude-extensions = ( ".php",".pl", ".fcgi" , ".cgi" , ".py" )
to
static-file.exclude-extensions = ( ".pl", ".fcgi" , ".cgi" , ".py" )

In /etc/php.ini

change
doc_root = "/www"
to
doc_root = "/opt/piratebox/www"

Now php work fine ! thumbs up

Index.php with multilanguage:

after install of php and other modification specified here

modifiy the file "/opt/piratebox/conf/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf":

$HTTP["url"] =~ "^/php/" {
cgi.assign = ( ".php" => "/usr/local/bin/php-cgi" )
}


to be
$HTTP["url"] =~ "^" {
cgi.assign = ( ".php" => "/usr/local/bin/php-cgi" )
}


I hope this will help some of you...

it's to 'php' be available from your '/'

1) rename your index.html file in "index.php"
with just that, you can verify that everything work fine.

2) create a new directory "lang" in /opt/piratebox/www"
in this new directory, create a file "en-lang.php"

your language file look like

<?php

$menu1 = "About PirateBox";
$menu2 = "...";
...
?>


3) edit your index.php
add at the beginning:

<?php
// enable this line if you add php-mod-session
//session_start();

//--- set default language ---------
$default_language = 'en';
if(isset($_GET['lang']) ) $lang = $_GET['lang'];

// enable this line if you add php-mod-session
//else if (!empty($_SESSION['lang'])) $lang = $_SESSION['lang'];

else $lang = (substr($_SERVER['HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE'], 0, 2));

//modifiy this line if you add other file
if ($lang <> "en") $lang = $default_language;

//---choose language file ---------------
include('lang/'.$lang.'-lang.php');

// enable this line if you add php-mod-session
//$_SESSION['lang'] = $lang;
?>


And for each text you want to be multilanguage, replace it buy:
<?php echo $menuXX; ?>

now you can create several language file like:
fr-lang, it-lang ...

I installed piratebox in a TP-Link mr3020. Everything works great. I want to install PHP to use h5ai (http://larsjung.de/h5ai/) to have a better design. I could see php5 package in opkg repositories, but I don't exactly which version (cli, cgi) could be better for this use.

Thanks!

Did you get h5ai working?

I have PHP up and running and can run a phpinfo() page and get the php config so I know it is working.. I have tried the Lighttp Directory mod instructions posted in the "hints" page and have also tried to get h5ai working, but have been unsuccessful with both of them.

Has anyone succeeded in getting something running that delivers a little nicer "Shared" file listing?

check "/opt/piratebox/tmp/break.log or /opt/piratebox/tmp/error.log" - maybe you need additional php-modules installed.

just be a short code-review, you'll need at least:

php5-mod-json
php5-mod-gd

Read carefully, you need to make your Box internet-access-possible... if you do it wrong or forget "opkg update" it can't find any packages.

If you didn't choose PirateBox because of anonymity reasons you might be interested into LibraryBox, which comes with PHP preinstalled & configured.

You also need to add the following line at the end of your lighttpd.conf file:

fastcgi.map-extensions = ( ".html" => ".php" )

This allows you to put php code into an html file, like for instance:

<?php echo "Hello World"; ?>

Mmmm... I dont think php will execute inside an html container. Usually php is used to build the html code.

Edit: I stand corrected.


PirateBox Installs:
2x Zsun's (both testing, one with serial interface)
A5-V11 (mostly for OpenWRT testing DIY)
2x RPi Zero's
(one active in car 24/7, gets a lot of hits at Walmart, movie theaters and the mall)
2x RPi3's (both home servers, one Ubuntu custom install along side a ton of other services)
1x RPi2 (currently work server)
