Public notepad about stuff I am currently playing with...

Update Raspbian Wheezy to Jessie upgrade

Last weekend new version of Debian Linux, with codename “Jessie” has been released. I have decided to update my Raspbian with Jessie sources and give upgrade a try.

Enable PostgreSQL connection from remote machine

Let’s continue in previous article and enable PostgreSQL connection from different machine in network. This allows Zabbix web interface to connect from another machine.

Let`s learn what is going on with Raspberry Pis in home network

Since I do have several Raspberry Pis at home, I figured out it would be cool to know how they`d perform while I am not using them. I decided to install Zabbix on one of them. If you don’t know what Zabbix is, it is an open source monitoring solution for networks and applications.

Install Ludolph on Raspberry Pi

Ludolph is Jabber Bot with Zabbix support, it is lightweight and has very few dependencies, therefore ideal to run on Raspberry Pi. It is easily extensible and you can write your own plugins in Python.

Minimized Raspbian image (no X server) with SD card backup

Most of the time I am using Raspbian only in command line so I’ve decided to create a minimal image, with removed X server and other unnecessary stuff that is not needed for a server.

Install Nginx PHP and MySQL on Raspberry Pi

Previously we have installed Raspbian, now we can do some actual work and install Nginx, PHP and MySQL on our Raspberry Pi. Afterwards we can use our Raspberry Pi as full-fledged home webserver.

Install Raspbian on Raspberry Pi

Raspbian “wheezy” is optimized version of Debian for Raspberry Pi. We will talk about how to install Raspbian on SD card so it is bootable on Raspberry Pi. This guide is almost identical with official wiki, but we will also upgrade firmware and run some comparison tests. We will do all the work in Linux terminal, if you are looking for graphical environment or Windows installer I suggest oficial wiki.
