The ultimate web pi guide?

Thu Sep 20, 2012 1:07 am

So, i have been thinking about wanting to learn more about setting up linux servers and secure connections to a linux server and i was thinking about writing a "ultimate web guide for pi", but before i can go ahead with writing the guide i would like some advice on how to write it cleanly so it can be understood by those with minimal linux experience and also how i can make my life easier when creating the guides such as what notes to make whilst i am experimenting in linux?

Any help would be greatly appreciated and i will be using the pi forum for my research :)

I agree this would be good thing to start. Linux forums are full of people asking the same question over and over again. And some people (such as myself) have been using Linux for years, and still don't have the answers...And searching through links
The tricky bit is find a structure and pick a medium
Is it best as a Wiki? You will repeating stuff other people have done, probably better than you
It may better just a have a website with a collection of searchable useful links to attempts to help by other problems with a rating system that people who visit can rate according to say understandability, and accuracy, and of course a prospect of users to submit sites that they have made or they found particularly useful...

It might be best to just write it up in the elinux wiki (even though it's a POS, when it comes to searching for info).

Creating so many different wiki's and scattered guides is a bad idea IMHO.
