    THX Jerry,

    It works fine by me on a B+ with 0.7.0. I just see by another poster there is 0.7.1 Thx for that headsup.

    I am now using this project like a base for my own project. Still finding out new things in python but we will see. When the script is ready I will try to update another RPi and import my script.

    If people follow the steps everyone must be able to get it working i guess Dont forget to chmod files !

    Thx again. I hope you find the time to reply the questions in this topic because there are some that I also want to have an answer./

    The problem is thath I have a Pi2 and then you got to patch the GPIO to get it to work. Searh for this:
    WebIOPi-0.7.1 Patch for Raspberry B+ and Pi 2
    When I am new I am not allowed to send links. But now its working for me. :-)

    For anyone having issues with the sudo /etc/init.d/webiopi start, this is your solution. I run on a RPi 3 and this fixed my problem

    Super article! I'm a total newbie to Pi, Raspian and a functional newbie to HTML and js, so I didn't have a clue to how to approach diddling the GPIO from a browser. You have provided a great foundation for me to expand on.

    Well, it appears I spoke too soon. I can load the page and the buttons change color when clicked but it doesn't control the GPIO. I also tried the WebIOPi utility which I should have tried first. I don't see a way to set up pins as input or output, and clicking a pin does nothing. Total newbie, not sure where to go next. Any ideas?

    How-To: Controlling GPIO pins via the Internet-capture.jpg


    Gets more interesting. I'm trying to run this on a Pi 3, but if I use the same image on the same Micro SD on a Pi Zero everything works as advertised. Now I am really confused.

    I'm a total newbie and I'm kind of pulling my hair out trying to figure out how to show the current state of the GPIO outputs on the buttons when the page comes up. Can anyone help?

    I had the same problem starting the daemon as a service after going through the tutorial. I just re-booted the Pi and then it worked. Don't know why.

    Turns out there are various articles on the web about this bug. Here's one: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/v...p?f=63&t=98981. Easy fix once you know what to do.

    Evening all! So I found this awesome tutorial, I have followed it an have the system sucessfully opening and closing my garage door. Awesome stuff! Better still would be to have an MP3 play when the door opens - AC/DC, Back in Black, Iron Man Style! Any idea on how to do this? I can successfully write a python script to play an MP3 on the pi (see below) but I cant figure out how to attach this script to a button press.


    #!/usr/bin/env python

    import os

    os.system ('omxplayer /home/pi/Projects/Webio/Audio/Black.mp3')

    Check out the webiopi documentation. You can create a button which calls a macro instead of controlling a GPIO pin.

    This can't be right?!
    Any help appreciated

    In my previous post I said I had a raspberry pi running a webpage that stopped working on Android Chrome 59.

    Tried a few things.

    Installed Android Chrome Beta 60 and it doesn't work.

    Installed Android Chrome Dev 61 and it works.
