I am pretty new to Arduino programming and wanted to learn how to connect an ESP8266 generic WiFi module to an Arduino Uno using the ESP-01 Adapter shown in the image below.
I tried doing it on my own while connecting the Vcc, GND, Tx and Rx pins of the adapter to the 5V, GND, Tx and Rx of the Arduino Uno respectively but was getting the following error while trying to upload the sketch:
warning espcomm_sync failed
error espcomm_open failed
error espcomm_upload_mem failed
To the best of my knowledge there is no tutorial on the internet that explains about the above mentioned adapter and its interfacing with the wifi module in detail. It would be a great help if someone could please guide me through the process so as to convert my Arduino into a server.
