Re: Post your Raspberry Pi server setup!

My cluster's been up and running for three months now. I've just added four more nodes because I'm starting to get a lot of traffic. My site served 45,000 pages last month and the amount of traffic I'm getting is still increasing. You can read about it here: http://raspberrywebserver.com/raspberry ... uster.html

Just decided to pull the Pi out of a drawer and turn it into a server. I posted a bit about it on my blog http://kenswain.com/blog/2013/12/13/ras ... ome-server.

headless running ssh with no password auth

Hi folks

I'm new on this forum and glad to join to the RPi crowd!

My target: Photo sync/backup server

My setup:

Edimax BR-6104K (well, only the box from router)
RaspberryPi 512RAM
Western Digital 320Gb USB2.0 MyPassport External drive (usb controller built-in on hard drive's PCB)
Some extra USB connectors
Lexmar platinum II 8Gb SDHC C10
Raspbian 2013-05-29 armel
Hamachi for ssh connection
Samba server, read only access for easy sharing with other PCs
BitTorrent sync

I managed to cut SD card for a half size of it, without any damage (as you can see on a photo the memory chip takes only a half of space inside the SD card) so I was able to fit the RPi in small box, also I took down the USB connector on RPi and as you can see I've soldered all the wires directly to PCB the only difference here, is that the HDD power wires I've soldered directly to the power plug on the back panel.

I'm using my raspberry pi (128 MB sd card as boot and 8 GB usb stick as root) as a mail server.

As mail server software I use the citadel suite http://citadel.org/. It's a very flexible and lightweight all-in-one mail server.
It took me only 30 minutes to get it completely running. It also has built-in support for spamassassin, clamav and blackhole lists.
I use the built-in webcit webserver to access my mail via a https webinterface.
Off course I have also a SSH server running for remote access.
I use fail2ban to protect my pi against brute force attacks. Fail2ban monitors my SSH server, mail server and my webcit webserver for break in attempts.

I don't use it for any other purposes yet. I don't have any other ideas yet for my pi.

I just got my Pi for Christmas. So far I've installed:


I'm having issues getting Proftpd working outside of my network. I thought it was just a port issue at first, but I DMZ'd my Pi and I still can't access it out of my network. Haven't had a chance to go back and mess with it yet.

Other stuff I want to install:

Some kind of network monitoring tool like Cacti

Current state:

1 raspian server

nfs (still murky, homogeneous external usb drive with vfat is NOT the best choice)
shell server for ccl, emacs, slime, rcs

1.1 next steps:

photo galleries
intranet search engine
cvs server
better nfs (migrate external usb harddrive to ext? with dedicated partitions probably)

2 OpenElec Media Center
2.1 next step:
get rid of media center, turn into playground with a couple of dedicated sd cards.
(distributed systems, bare metal, *bsd, whatever)

I have a production use PXE server based on ERPXE that I use to troubleshoot computers. It boots WinPE, several linux live distros as well as installation CDs. I also have some basic windows and dos tools that can be loaded from anywhere.

Basic setup

Raspberry Pi Model B
EdiMax USB Wifi
16G sandisk class 10 SD Card
32G Sandisk Cruizer USB Drive
Jameco 12v-5V converter
Some old 110VAC - 12VDC power supply I had laying around the shop
ATXRaspi Shutdown controller
Pelican brief case
switches, and some keystone hardware to extend the ports to the front of the case.

I just got a new PiTFT from AdaFruit that I'm trying to write an interface for in python. I'd like to add some features but it requires an interface to make them work.

I have 2 Pis, 1 as a server without X and access only through ssh. this is a early model B 256 and sits under my desk.
My other Pi is a new B 512 and i use it for X and general use (programming, mcpi etc.)

My server runs lighttpd and vsftpd and I use it to share files over the internet.

My website is http://jameswait.net:443/ (not much on it... and yes, i just modified the default lighttpd page. :oops: )
My webpage, hosted on a pi: http://jameswait.net:443/
