A $35 WordPress Server

Raspberry_Pi_3

The Raspberry Pi is a bargain PC. In its 3rd generation you get a tiny PC the size of a credit card with a 1.2 GHZ quad-core ARM CPU, a 400 MHz Broadcom VideoCore IV GPU (which is experimentally supported in the latest Raspbian build, meaning openGL support), 1 GB of RAM, 4 USB ports, an Ethernet port, 802.11n Wireless networking, Bluetooth 4.0 and whatever decent size microSD card you want to use for storage – for $35!

So to start this blog off, and to give this blog a home, I figured why not try to use this little PC as a WordPress server? It’s easy enough to do: start with the above-described $35 Raspberry Pi model 3, install Raspbian Linux, Apache web server, PHP script processor, MySQL database software and you’re up and running!

Here’s a great tutorial for doing this yourself.
