Re: WebPi - Raspi based webserver

Hey cool. I have the same router and likely ISP hehe. I'm delighted to see other people are seriously planning to use the pi as a webserver. Its more than capable ..

Re: Introduce yourself!

Hi I'm Holy One, 33. I like yogo, long walks in the woods ..

I'm not an IT professional and I don't programme for fun.

I bought the pi as an ultra low power/footprint home server solution to replace my p3 700.

So far so great!

php zlib compression & apache

I was just wondering if anyone had done any testing or fiddling with these options? given the pi's relatively feeble cpu, is it better to turn off all compression of dynamic content via php.ini (zlib.output_compression = Off) and in the relevant apache/lighttpd modules? or is compression benefit/cos...

Re: any *efficient* psus?

I have studied the list of recommended psus on the elinux wiki and they are all unavailable or highly inefficient in protracted use. The one I wanted to get, the RS wall wart psu, is out of stock with months lead time on availability. So just wondering, srsly, are there any that don't waste 50w of h...

whats the point of getting all excited about the pis low power usage if your crappy psu wastes 50x more as heat?

yeah, I thought you had to unmount all paritions before you tried to make the image because active processes might still try and write data during the process? will it not screw up the image if you dont?

I was just wondering if anyone had tried this? basically 99% of all logs are unimportant and reducing the writes to the sdcard would be nice. so using a small ramdisk for logging, that is only written out when the system is shut down or after a set period of time seems like a good idea. using logrot...

seems likely to be one of two things: 1. your pi is having power issues, using cheap unregulated phone chargers etc. can fail to output the required power under full load causing the pi to crash. 2. you're experiencing a kernel panic which is crashing the system. this is something you need to reprod...
