New website launched

The new website has now gone live. With the acquisition of my Raspberry Pi comes a whole host of possibilities.

My Pi is currently running as the server for this website. Unfortunately the Pi is not powerful engough to run Wordpress or Joomla (who'd of thought they were processor intensive) - it does run, but a four to six second delay in spitting out a page is way too long.

What I've gone for on my first crack is a flat-file CMS with blogging functionality as a plugin running stock Bootstrap and Bootstrap-theme CSS. I'm pretty pleased with the first real attempt. It needed some mods out of the box but I'm happy with it for the moment.

Here's a rundown of the software specs it's rocking:

Software rundown
Raspberry Pi Model B
OS Linux: wheezy-raspbian
Webserver Apache / PHP5 / MySQL
CMS Get Simple CMS
CSS Bootstrap for GetSimple CMS with Bootstrap-theme and some other modifications
Blogging GS Blog with OS Openspace API for mapping
FTP vsftpd
Filesharing/SMB Samba
Logging syslog-ng
Other Uptimed


I'm hoping to post some more articles on the trickier things I've come across when setting up the RPi.

As a bonus in the mean time, I've reposted some posts from Blogger from a long while ago when I first though I'd start a blog but quickly ran out of stuff to blog about!
