Raspberry Pi As Webserver.

Introduction: Raspberry Pi As Webserver.

This instructable will only briefly show a way to enable webtraffic to your Raspberry Pi.
In the last step you'll find a guide to add the content.

You'll need:
1 Raspberry Pi
1 Router
1 Micro USB cable
1 Ethernet cable
(and of course an Internet connection)

Step 1: Raspberry Pi As Webserver - Connect to Router.

First you need to connect your Raspberry to your router.

Connect ethernet cable to a free Lan-port. (See picture above).

Connect Micro USB to router or if you have different cable, to your power net.

I'm also using a USB-hub and discstorage...

Step 2: Raspberry Pi As Webserver - Configure Router.

To enable access to your Raspberry Pi you need to enable traffic to it.

Steps:
1. Log in to your router.

2. Check current ip.
Under Attached devices check your current ipaddress for your Pi.

3.Lock current ip to your Raspberry Pi.
Under LAN-setup Add an address reservation for your Pi.

4. Configure asDMZ-machine.
Under WAN-setup Enter current ip and enable as Default DMZ Server.

Step 3: Raspberry Pi As Webserver - Setup Webserver.

Now you'll need to add content to your webserver.

Here you can find a guide to setup and add content to your Raspberry Pi webserver:

Good luck, and may the Pi be with you!

    This is to allow a setup with pi and a standard router and be able to create a standalone webserver?

    Yes Port5, your pi should be accessible from the internet if you follow the instruction. Did you succeed?

    Första svensken jag sett på Instructables! :D

    First sweed I've seen on Instructables! :D

    Sure, it is small, but it is a server. If you only need to upload and dowload files, perhaps you are looking for a NAS ? But a Raspberry Pi is much more fun! ;)

    Don't really need MySql for a webserver, but if you want to present anything more than just stationary html pages, MySQL comes in handy.
    Should really give it a try :-) It is really not that bad.

    Thanks emdarcher! Warms me in this winter times...

    Your (tip ?) instructable is a dream of mine, as you saw! RPi as a laptop, can it be cooler?!

    Cheers!

    Yes Oakapi10, that is correct. But could you not use a Wi-Fi adapter then?

    1 k visits...Thanks folks! But not an awful lot of comments... Is really everything crystal clear?

    @amandaghassaei - Yes indeed! I see that you have done some cool projects with Arduino... Tip for you (and everybody else=) Why not make a laptop pi? Perhaps a bluetooth keyboard and a 7 or 11 inch screen? A dream of mine.

    sweet! I've got to get going with the raspberry pi, so many awesome projects that could be done!
