Hi,

I am about to start writing a php script which accesses the serial port on my PC, (/dev/ttyS0) - however, I cannot seem to find out where to configure the baud rate before I open the stream?
any help will be appreciated!

AFAIk php does not support sending ioctl-commands to an open file-descriptior you will need to set thoses settings via external command. On linux use setserial like:

exec('setserial /dev/ttyS0 ..');
fopen('/dev/ttyS0');
