Picture of Ultimate Pi Home Server

Welcome reader.

First please note: This instructable can be done within a day, but a weekend is certainly recommended.

In this instructable I hope to teach you key skills involved with setting up and configuring a Linux Server. The knowledge used here can be applied to almost all PC architectures so if you don't own a Pi
(Why not dude?) or it's tied up in another project, any old or unused PC will work. In more detail the main skills taught will be:

  • Burning an ISO image to an SD for the Pi
  • Installing an OS
  • Setting up A web server
  • Setting up An SQL instance
  • Deploying a custom cloud network
  • Managing users for the cloud network
  • Setting up a SAMBA File sharing network, which will integrate into an established windows based home or office network
  • Controlling SAMBA users
  • Establishing a static IP whilst using a non-static IP internet connection
  • Using Webmin Console to install packages
  • Using Command line terminal to install packages
  • Carrying out basic commands such as rebooting (terminal)
  • Editing system files with Nano terminal based editor
  • Permanently mounting hard drives within the Linux file system table via webmin
  • Understanding the principal of the Port forwarding function on a home router
  • Setting up a web interfaced bit torrent manager
  • Being an overall IT nerd.

If you're interested then carry on reading. If not, give it a try; you may discover a new hobby.

As the above list demonstrates there's a lot to learn. I definitely feel this is a weekend project. I've followed this process several times and it takes a couple of days at least. Its good to take long breaks because your eyes may begin to become strained and you may suddenly become unenthusiastic about the whole thing.  This instructable offers functions of many different store purchasable products, such as:

The server we'll setup will cost far less than each of these services in the long run and only a fraction of the cost of the combined services. Setting up your own server is not only custom and cheap, its very rewarding. I will be a happy guy if somebody benefits from what this instructable contains or become inspired by what I have done. It took ages to plan and write this instructable. If you learn anything at all or feel this instructable is well written or well documented, please vote for me in the Weekend Projects Contest or the I could make that contest.

I would also like to point out that this is not a comprehensive tutorial on designing a server case. There are details of my case on step 3, however this guide is intended to be a comprehensive software tutorial. So if you get stuck or feel a step isn't too clear, just let me know and i'll be happy to help.

A few tips: Because this takes more than one day, don't just fall asleep and forget what you were planing on doing next. Instead have a pile f post-it notes. This way before you ZzZzzzz... you can jot down anything that needs doing during the next session. I had loads. All over the walls, floors, chairs, desks - you name it! Okay slight exaggeration, but on a serious note they do help. I did use a full stack.  Another tip would be to follow the steps on order. Don't just think "Hmm I like the sound of my own cloud network lets do that first!" The steps are in such an order that each before is most likely required for the current, if that makes sense. Just stick to the order, it'll make life easier. A final tip: don't be limited to what is taught here. Do Think of this as a base for inspiration. Adding more services such as those listed on the turnkey website is easily done using the search APT function within the Webmin Package manager.

Okay, Confused? Then let's learn...


 Caution! This instructable contains 30 steps. Proceed at your own risk.

Hi there, this is a great roadbook.

I'm stuck at owncloud config, after input all the data.

I keep getting the error "Can't create data directory (/xxxxxxx)

  • You can usually fix this by giving the webserver write access to the ownCloud directory '/usr/share/owncloud' (in a terminal, use the command 'chown -R www-data:www-data /path/to/your/owncloud/install/data'"

Can someone help me?
DarylC1 RuiS7 days ago

So, I spent the last 8 hours or so beating my head against this problem also. Finally I got past it. Here is what I had to do.

Through the Shellinabox, I ran the following commands:

chown -R www-data:www-data /media

chown -R www-data:www-data /media/serverhdd

chown -R www-data:www-data /media/serverhdd/cloud

Then I ran the following command for each of those directories:

chmod 750 /media

chmod 750 /media/serverhdd

chmod 750 /media/serverhdd/cloud

It seems that owncloud needs to have those permissions for the entire path for it to work.

MarcioS1 DarylC11 minute ago

NTFS partitions do not accept chmod premissions. you have to edit fstab under etc/fstab and ad a linne like this

UUID=xxxxxxxxxxx /media ntfs-3g defaults,permissions 0 0

change xxxxxxx for your uuid

find you uuid using this

I'm on the penultimate step of setting up port forwarding for no ip. Each of the services work except for owncloud. I've forward incoming port 1 to port 80 to my pi and am using the url but it just says This webpage is not available. Anyone able to provide some help?

can someone give me a step by step guide on how to create a working raspian OS so i can start this guiDe? i have one of the new boards. same problem as others where provided image file does not work .

Justin (and others), I was able to get started by following instructable


i am on step 17 but is there a way to add a brother 7060 to the server?

i cant mount my usb stick, I get an error. Plus there are 3 options when mounting and none work. ive tried various formats and all fail

I would also like to know this

cty1 made it!3 days ago

Thanks for the great explanation. I already had the Pi set up with a simple system accessible via command line, but I thought this looked way easier to administer once set-up, and it is! There werre some sticking points along the way but nothing a bit of googling couldn't solve (hint for other users - do a google search for what you want and add the term "solved" and you'll usually find the answer). I've attached a pic of the server hiding in my bookshelf, quietly doing its thing!

Hi guys, I'm having an issue with my Segate 2TB Backup Plus USB 3.0 (externally powered hardrive). It is detected on the Pi but wiill not show up when trying to add it on the webmin interface:

I had the same problem with the same hard drive, it just needs more power, through a powered usb hub should work.

Getting the Data directory (/media/serhdd/cloud) is readable for other users

Please change the permissions to 0770 so that the directory cannot be listed by other users.

But when going to edit the /etc/fstab file there isn't one so I'm creating a new on.. Any ideas? Should I have one? or do I need to create one?

silesb15 days ago

I have the server working well. However I can not add a user. First I do not have screens as described in tutorial. I have added user under webmin and under users and groups. This seems to work but login will not accept password. It reverts to a blank line. user is axxxxxxxxxan password ******. address I does accept user owncloud password *****.

I want to have individual logins for 8 people in users group able to upload and download files (mainly pictures) only.

Dear Dr,

please explaine where webmin should run on, is it the computer I use to acces the Pi or on the Pi itself? If on the Pi how do I start it up?


Dear Dr, I want to know too.

willr8 Kk4618 days ago

I think he is using a VNC to log in to the pi, you could do this without going through that, but the point of this is to learn how to execute commands/maintain a server with a moderately forgiving format (if you mess this one up, you won't lose your job).

UppityM Kk4619 days ago

I don't seem to be able to connect correctly using windows 8. My windows 7 desktop works great but not my windows 8 laptop. Any ideas?

You can solve the network config error by editing the /etc/network/interfaces file just after you copy the image to your SD card while it is still in the card reader attached to your PC. As root or administrator open the /etc/network/interfaces file and add the following the the top of the file # UNCONFIGURED INTERFACES

After this put the SD in the RPi and all should be well

information found here

This was THE ANSWER! Thank you.

So now, after I have the possibility to edit the interfaces file via the network settings menu, what should I enter to be officially headless? DHCP or static? If static, should I also set this ip on my router by the Pi's MAC address?

"Just input logical answers" LOL this incstructable tells us how to unwrap and then skip this part TROLOLOL:D

How do i edit the /etc/network/interfaces file?

mstruble shmaic6 months ago

Did you ever find a solution to this problem?

I can't seem to find a way to open up the /etc/network/interfaces file while the SD card is plugged into my PC. Nor what the proper information to put under the DHCP / Static fields when that comes up.

Any help would be appreciated!

Im also struggling to find the /etc/network/interfaces file any help would be greatly appreciated and Im sure even if I solve this others would find it useful :)

Everything was cool up until this point. Now I can't go any further. After performing this step I just get session closed. Typing: nano /etc/hosts doesn't do anything. Please help.

In reality, using a VNC is an important skill for an IT professional, but it can be a bit unforgiving, and some commands will simply not work given the compatibility issues between OS's.

Fixed, I hooked up the monitor and keyboard to the Pi again. I escaped from the blue appliances menu and entered command line mode, where I was able to login using "root" and "mypassword". From here I could enter the "nano /etc/hosts" menu and change from "core" to "mynewname". Once doing this I was able to login again via ShellInABox.

Thank you so much!! Was having the same problem, now it is fixed.

Umm yeah, the image file is a .gz with a .tar file inside of it. Any idea about how to go about unzipping this convolution without corrupting the .iso file?

I was searching for some reason to buy a Pi for xmas and came across your instructable. Since I don't have one yet, I followed your guide on a Ubuntu VM for fun. Very well done! Now I'm going to have to buy a Pi just to do it over again!

Eth0 works but I can not configure wlan0/ Also how do I enter the required password to reach my router? Help greatly appreciated



I was wondering if we can use Raspbian OS to run this project or do we really need the suggested OS (Turnkey).

Thanks for your input.
