Host Your Own Website With a Raspberry Pi @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi
Makeuseof published a great tutorial on how to turn your Raspberry Pi into a web server and host your own site!
There are various good reasons to setup a Raspberry Pi as a webserver. For instance, your desktop computer may not have the available system resources to serve pages reliably. Alternatively you might be interested in using it as an always-on web server offering content that anyone can access, which means leaving the device switched on for lengths of time. As the Raspberry Pi has a very low energy footprint, this makes it an ideal choice.
Other reasons exist. The size of the computer makes it useful as a portable device, something that might prove useful if you are trying to run a web server in a territory where this isn’t usually allowed, or if hosting is expensive for you…
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
