Just 3 pi's at the present:

#1 512M version (256M SD boot with 16G JumpDrive for root)
Primary DNS server
Primary DHCP server
Apache - PHP
MySQL
Sendmail / pop3d
Big Brother (network/host monitoring)

#2 512M (64G SD-Card boot/root)
Same functions as #1 only as secondary/failover.

#3 256M (512M SD Boot with root on NFS)
Mostly experimental... ArmedSlack... starting a rewrite for a telnet/SSH BBS from scratch, but with a twist.... it's all written in bash scripts (jailed from login prompt forward) zero load and super fast so far.

Re: Post your Raspberry Pi server setup!

Hello!

My setup currently consists of 2 π model B with 512 Mo RAM running a trimmed down headless version of Raspbian.

π1 is in Marseille and serves as
  • the website for my self-hosting / homeserver project http://www.helios.im (mainly in french, translation in progress) using Nginx, Varnish, WordPress, WordPress Super Cache, php-fpm, php-apc
  • the mail server using Postfix Dovecot Spamassassin Postfixadmin mySql & Roundcube as webmail
  • secondary slave DNS server for helios.im sudomains with BIND9
  • other services: owncloud
π2 is in Lyon and serves as
  • web backup for π1
  • future master DNS server for the coming network of self-hosted πs
Two π are on their way to my letter box:
  • one will replace slave DNS and will be an optional backup/mirror for the selfhosted servers
  • the other will be for sale, waiting for someone eager to become part of a decentralized, free (as in freedom) internet!

    The helios.im servers will have core features (mail and web server with preconfigured optimized wordpress, both ready to post out of the box, OwnCloud, Leed, a lightweight RSS feed) and optional features (whatever you can think of, if it can fit with the preceding apps within 512Mo and not slow things down too much).

    The model B Rev2 servers use SanDisk Ultra 30MB/s SDHC 8, 16 or 32 Go SD memory cards, standard cat 5e FTP Patch RJ 45 connectors and standard RS cases.

    The main objective is to make selfhosting at home affordable (both financially and technically), so that more and more people have complete control over their public and personal online data.

    Another objective is to have fun! ;-)

    If you can cope with untidiness here is the english/french project wiki: http://wiki.helios.im with a lot of configuration tips and tutorial links.
    The project is CC BY-SA 3.0 & GPLv3 and free software only, the server image will be out soon.

    I thought it would be a good idea to have a thread where people could post their Raspberry Pi server setups. That way people might be inspired to try something new. I personally haven't gotten around to buying more than one Raspberry Pi yet (which I use as a media center), so I don't have such a server, yet.

    Stuff that might be of interest:
    • How many Raspberry Pis does your setup consist of?
    • What other equipment and components do you use?
    • What do you use your server setup for?

My server is just one lonely Pi, Model B Rev 2. It's plugged in to ethernet and power. That's it for hardware, but the software is where it gets interesting...

I run a web server, irc server, and minecraft server on it. It uses .tk for it's domain name, since I don't feel like paying for a .com or .org. The MC server is bukkit running in the java VM, a difficult task for the pi, as it has such little ram.

The Pi makes quite a nice little server, but I haven't gotten a chance to stress-test it enough yet.

My boss took an interest in the RPi, and believes in single-task devices when they're that cheap. So!

Pi Numbered the First: (Model B)
DNSmasq. It works perfectly, handles DNS and DHCP for my internal test network at work (currently consists of a TippingPoint, MSM Controller + 1 AP, several Lync phones, several Digium phones, a Switchvox server, and a TippingPoint). Also gets used to test other things before I roll them out to one of my other Pis, but at the moment DNSmasq is really all it's doing.

Pi Numbered the Second: (Model B)
VirtualHere network USB hub for the office. Pretty cool little program, really easy to set up as far as the Pi goes. Getting really old barcode scanners working on Windows 8 machines for people, not so much.

Pi Numbered the Third: (Model B, no mounting holes)
This one is my baby, and it took me quite awhile to get it working properly. It's a fully self-contained PXE boot server that can deploy Debian, Fedora, or Ubuntu, and all it needs is power and ethernet.
Running:
DNSmasq + a quick config script I wrote in case there's a need to have something slightly different going on (including pointing to a different server for PXE clients)
RPCbind
NFS-Kernel-Server
PXELinux

I have two servers at the moment.
The new server is a 512MB board with a shortened upstream cable. There are only two wires into the server, a power and an Ethernet.
new server65k.jpg
512MB hub-powered
new server65k.jpg (62.32 KiB) Viewed 11684 times
The old server was a 256MB ver. 1.0 board that was modded to back-power. It ran continuously from 8/25/2012 till last week (7/5/2013). That board was hard-wired to the hub but has just been converted to pin headers. it also ran from a USB HDD fro a couple of months but really the 320GB HDD was not worth the extra power it wasted. As it is I have a 16GB Class 10 SanDisk Ultra SD card and the partition is only 8GB. Right now each server tests out at 6 watts total usage.

256 modded for hub-power

Both use a full install of Wheezy with Apache2, MySQL and PHP. Both have WordPress right now. I will be rebuilding the Old server with a lighter web server. still trying to decide which to use. Also want to go to a lighter database.

pin header65k.jpg (59.77 KiB) Viewed 11684 times
The switch from a 256MB board to a 512MB really did not make any difference at all in the performance of WordPress. Overclocking did more than the meory upgrade. The real problem with performance is Apache and MySQL.

So nothing really fancy, but it works well, use very little power, and looking to improve it more. There is more on the back-powering (USB Hub-powered) at my website.

Server was changed over the last couple of months. Added a cache to WordPress. I also moved the RasPi and the PSU into a common enclosure. There is a 110V cord into the enclosure and it has a power switch in that power cord. I forgot to mention that I use a 512MB USB stick that has been formatted as a swap file for the server and swappiness has been reset to 40. I use DYNDNS to locate my server.

My page serves are a bit slow, but I think this may be due to my outgoing is only 100KB.

My Pi serving as a web server:

Hardware:
* 1 headless Pi (for now) running Raspbian “wheezy”
* 16GB USB drive serving as root partition

Server:
* lighttpd + php + mysql
* WordPress
* noip client to update dynamic DNS
* ssh for admin purposes
* iptables + fail2ban for security

Future changes:
* multi Pi web server
or
* Pi home automation server

And here's my page: http://www.bartbania.com
We're not here because we are free. We're here because we are not free. There is no escaping reason. No denying purpose. Because we both know without purpose, we would not exist.

1:
Web, mail and DNS master for gdt.id.au.
RPi Model B 512MB
Raspbian, latest, modified to boot from SD card, root on hard disk
2TB USB-attached hard disk.
Headless, with serial console is connected to a USB dongle.
Web using Apache, IMAP mail using Postfix/Dovecot/SpamAssassin/ClamAV, DNS using BIND.
Does about 80Mbps, which is respectable for 12 watts, but does show the effect of the single USB bus attaching to both the fast ethernet and USB disk. These days I'd consider a different single-board computer with gigabit ethernet and SATA, but the power consumption would be much higher and thus probably not worthwhile for a vanity web site.

2:
Home internet gateway.
RPi Model B 512MB
16B SanDisk SD card (and spare with copy of image)
Raspbian, latest, only major mod to send syslog back to dmesg buffer rather than write to SD card.
Connects via ethernet to "home area network" fast ethernet switch; connects via USB to ADSL2 bridge to ISP; connects via USB to a old Samsung personal laser printer.
The purpose of this is twofold. Firstly, the printer isn't supported by drivers for the latest Windows or MacOS. So these can print using their generic PostScript driver to the RPi actiing as a print server. It interfaces with printing systems used by Apple IOS and Google Android too, making my old printer more capable than most printers currently being sold. Secondly, I wanted to expand my understanding of IPv6 by implementing a home IPv6 gateway, this is described in my blog.

What I liked about the RPi is that there's just enough resources to run the widely-used software for a server application -- I don't need to fiddle about with software designed for small embedded systems. I can use Apache, BIND, Postfix and so on and not face the higher costs of using software outside the server mainstream.

The mounting is simple enough -- nylon screws and nuts through the mounting holes into the steel of a 1RU 19in rack shelf. These simply hold the RPi about five millimetres above the shelf. Additional holes are used to bolt the USB hard disk to the shelf and to pass through touchtape cable ties to control cabling.

I used a RS-232-3.3v to USB dongle to give a serial console. This dongle is mounted to the rear of a USB B-A through-connector designed for use on a wall plate. I mounted a half-height wallplate on the front of the shelf. The result is that to connect to the serial console you plug a USB A-B cable from your PC into the USB socket on the front of the shelf. Also on the front of the shelf is a reset push button (running to P06-1+2) and a 240VAC switch to power-down the entire shelf. The result is a very datacentre-friendly presentation in 1RU. The layout allows for 3 RPis+disk per 1RU shelf.
