BSD, SSH and PHP on my iPhone

Tonight I installed BSD system on my iPhone. Once that is complete I installed openSSH, Term-vt100. I opened terminal and changed my root password using the command passwd.

I found the ip of the iPhone using the command ifconfig. Latter I was able to connect to the iPhone using ssh from my laptop ;-). I was even able to ftp files to my iphone over SSH.

I Installed apache, php edited httpd.conf and I was able to run php scripts from my iPhone. It has all the basic modules that is needed to write a simple powerful application with sqlite. Taken a screenshot too 😉

Yesterday I got a new iPhone. I am really grateful to Yousef for bringing me such a wonderful gadget. With tips from my friend Iyad I was able to make it work in U.A.E. Everything was smooth and works like a charm.This is the best mobile I have ever used in my life. The iPhone I got had firmware 1.1.1 and I used this website to make it work.

I am really happy now 😀
