I thought some people here might like this :)
I've just started the project, feedback is very welcome!

Details on the project: ... mp-server/

I'm still working on the website/forum but I've got a very basic intro up and there's also a download link for the first Debian Squeeze LAMPi image :)

Hi Peter,
thanks, very interesting. I'm pretty much a newbie to RPi, else pretty much an oldbie. I wanted to check if RPi could host LAMP too, so I followed a similar course to yours, but I went with Archlinux because I seemed to be struggling with Debian, although I use that as my regular desktop on my home PC.

You can visit the result at . It seems OK but I haven't added nearly as much useful documentation as on your site, although I suspect that is not RPi hosted.

SD problems aside, RPi seems pretty impressive to me. Although probably hosting LAMP is probably not its metier. I am going to move on to projects which might be more useful to school students than the usual ICT curriculum.

2Gig SD
Code: Select all
Image Wheezy
sort raspi-config
sudo su
apt-get update
apt-get install apache2
apt-get install php5
apt-get install mysql-client mysql-server
apt-get install postfix
apt-get install tomcat6
apt-get install vsftpd
cd /var/www
pico index.html
do a bit of editing to personalise the file

figure out the IP of theRPi assigned by DHCP
put that IP address into your browser
LAMP achieved

Ok there's a load of editing to get the FTP working (but it does) and there's the stuff to get postfix sorted but it fit's on a 2g SD card and I don't think you will get a lot of web space.

In addition i've got fixed IP sorted so I can port forward with confidence and there should be room to get a No-ip patch running but thats borderline on space.

Nearly forgot Win32DiskImage read to create a new image file so you don't need to do it allllllll again
Noob is not derogatory the noob is just the lower end of the noob--geek spectrum being a noob is just your first step towards being an uber-geek ;)

If you find a solution please post it in the wiki the forum dies too quick

Oops I lost my static IP address. My ISP withdrew RPi's static IP and I can't afford an upgrade to replace it. So I have switched to Dynamic DNS via , thanks to and my Draytek router.

Hi, I tried this, but it didn't work and my Pi won't open its desktop anymore... Does anyone have an idea how I could fix this and at the same time delete the things I've downloaded for this project?
Many thanks,

Don't use FTP. Just use SFTP through the built-in SSH. It's much more secure.
