How to Set Up a Raspberry Pi Web Server #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
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!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
