Here are some useful Raspberry Pi-specific instructions for tuning up your Pi as a web server from Jeremy Morgan:
This isn’t too much different from any other web server install with a few minor tweaks, and updating the device. But I thought I’d share it for those willing to try it out. This is for hacker fun only, I wouldn’t recommend using this for any real commercial website but there’s plenty you could do with this as a webserver just to experiment and play.
On the other hand I haven’t really tested it thoroughly it might be a decent option for hosting smaller sites for all I know. It might be a fun experiment to set up one as a web server, one MySQL, one Varnish, etc. and throw some traffic at it. I’ll be doing some other cool experiments with this device and documenting it here. I love hearing feedback so if you have any questions or comments send them my way!
While this might not be the best thing for a site broadcast to the world for heavy use, the opportunities for a local web server in your home, office, or hackerspace are many — thanks for the tip!
