I have Raspberry Pi 2 Model B v1.1. (Noobs 1.4.1 Raspbian loaded)

On The Pi Store, I registered myself then tried to download WebIOPi. But after the clicking on download button, it said that wait for 5 seconds for PayPal page to load. But, nothing responsed to me to download WebIOPi. So, download didn't start. By the way, why a free package as WebIOPi needs Paypal page to pay something? It is free of charge as mentioned on the store.

  • I'd get it from a different source. Google webiopi. Isn't webIOPi free?

    Don't forget that the Pi store is dead. The company behind it went bust and the foundation cites tax reasons for not continuing with it.

From the Raspberry Pi webpage you can download the OS you want to install on your SD, but to get the WebIOPi you need to go the WebIOPi downloads page.

It is completely free and the last version of course.
