I think this is a pretty normal thing to do. I have an http server on the BB. I don’t mind eventually using node.js, but I was hoping that it wouldn’t be a today project. I had no prior experience with PHP so I learned a few things.
I have ubuntu installed on both my laptop (intel) and by BB. On both machines I did
sudo apt-get install php5
On my laptop, I was successful. On my BB I got the stuff about packages needing to be installed and when I entered Y for yes, I got about 6 messages like
Err http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/ oneiric-updates/main apache2-mpm-prefork armel 2.2.20-1ubuntu1.2
404 Not Found
and 7 messages like
Failed to fetch http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/pool/main/a/apache2/apache2-mpm-prefork_2.2.20-1ubuntu1.2_armel.deb 404 Not Found
and the following message
E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?
I was wondering if anyone has used PHP in an ARM linux environment. If so, what needs to be done.
