Hostname doesn't change
December 16, 2016 01:43AM
Just wanted to point out that the supplied commands on the OpenWRT mods page doesn't actually seem to do anything. I tried to set the hostname to test.lan/ and it is still redirecting to piratebox.lan/

Is there something I'm missing?

did you change the index.html in opt/piratebox/www?

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)

First of all, how did you perform the reboot? Did you perform a proper shutdown?
If not, then your changes weren't written to the SD Card (takes up to 5 minutes to save some SDCard life).

If you performed a proper reboot,
which commands did you perform?
Which files did you change?
Can you verify the root filesystem is not read-only?

And remember, this is the subforum for OpenWrt based systems. RPi has a different subforum and uses different techniques and commands! Please open up a new thread in the RPi forum.
