Re: Another aproach?


If you are using Wheezy -- that would be apt-get

My suggestion to the original poster, is walk before you run.  Install  apache2 (apt-get install apache2) 

Create a couple of hand edited html pages and try it out.  Get familiar with configuration and logs, then add PHP and MySQL (running MySQL with the data on the SD is going to be slow, but will work -- better to use an attached drive, but that is going to take some Linux knowledge to configure properly).

Installing the LAMP stack on the RPi is pretty straight forward with yum.  It works quite well, although MySQL queries/updates may not be really snappy because of the latency of the SD Card access.. but it is acceptable for most uses.  Installing phpMyAdmin as well for database maintenance would be recommended.

Beyond the install deciding what and how you want it to actually do it may be another matter.  But with PHP and MySQL in the back end updating raw html can be all but eliminated completely by dynamic web pages.
