Raspberry Pi LAMP server v2 with Nginx and MariaDB

So why Nginx and MariaDB ?

Nginx will replace our Apache server. But why ? Short answer is performance. Bit longer answer is that Nginx is Asynchronous server which means it can perform several actions at the same time, without waiting previous to end.

Nginx doesn’t support .htaccess files and sometimes the are differences how Nginx handles PHP.

MySQL was brought by oracle some time ago and since then the MySQL has problems with including community in development process and distrust from community for having competing products, open source MySQL and proprietary OracleDB.

Because I mainly use Linux this is small write up (mainly for myself) how to install Sigrok software for Saleae Logic Analyzer.
For now you can still use software provided by Saleae from their homepage (https://www.saleae.com/), but it soon may not work with clones.

Story of Saleae is quite common. Guys developed good product, wrote the software and chinese manufacturers copied it for the 1/10 of the price. Now of course if you like the product and this is a good product, support the developers. But here’s the thing, original product cost 108 USD and for many hobbyists  this is not affordable. Especially if you use it maybe once every couple of months.

But I digress …
