First post of the new site!


New server!

Introducing my new server: A Raspberry Pi Zero W!

It's powered by the ADSL router and still sitting on top of my old PC server.

The Raspberry Pi W runs the following:

  • My two sites, which incidentally are archived here:

Not bad for a 700mhz USB machine!

And easy to backup, just
archive: sudo dd if=/dev/mmcblk0 conv=sync,noerror bs=10M | gzip -c > pi_img3_apacheConfigured_CMS_installed.gz

reinstate: sudo gzip -c pi_img3_apacheConfigured_CMS_installed.gz | dd of=/dev/mmcblk0 conv=sync,noerror

I followed this simple tutorial to get Apache & PHP going, plus I've been using linux, Apache and PHP for a long time now ;)

What happened?

Funny story, I added a script which deleted old logs to crontab to run every Monday, well last Monday (29th October) I could see my sites but couldn't log onto the server! The script deleted my /usr/home directory!

Anyway, it was a good opportunity to move on from flatpress, my old flat file CMS to something new and better, a flat file wiki, https://www.pmwiki.org .

The only problem is that the netyaroze-europe.com had a complicated backend, and it'll take time to recreate.

Updated to a new Pi setup!
