I run raspberry with a strating webbrowser in kiosk mode and want to display the local ip-adress of my raspberry.

How can I do this? I Use PHP (httpd) I tried with

<?php print_r($SERVER); ?>

but this will give me only

I want the same output like

sudo ip addr show 


eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP qlen 1000
    link/ether b8:27:eb:7c:ce:18 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet brd scope global eth0

Any ideas?

  • I tried this and it works! <?php $host = gethostname(); $ip = gethostbyname($host); echo $ip; ?> – s3bi Nov 2 '13 at 18:38
