I was born in and am living in Singapore,
an island city-state with beautiful skylines.
I am currently employed as a Presales Specialist @ SAP
I am also a Management of Technology student @ NUS
I build things with tools from the computing world:
I write on my blog:
If you are thinking of starting a blog about computer technology, then you can consider hosting a WordPress website on your Raspberry Pi.
Since Raspberry Pi is a capable machine that does not take up too much space and power, it is a good as a web server.
In addition, if you have an Internet subscription that does not block port 80 and 443, hosting a WordPress at home can be cost effective.
Given these points, let's look at how we can host a WordPress website on a Raspberry Pi with Raspbian Buster and Nginx.
When you have been adding content to your website for some time, you may notice two things:
- There are many pages that are never visited in months or even years.
- The home page will always have page views.
Given these points, the home page is one place where you have the chance to promote pages that are rarely seen organically.
If your website is realised by polyglot stack, then you will find the Slide Anything plugin useful for creating a Carousel for your WordPress instance.
Given that, this post shows how you can create a Carousel in WordPress with Slide Anything.
When you build Raspberry Pi server projects with Raspbian Buster, browser-trusted certificates can be needed.
Since the inception of Let's Encrypt, many webmasters had been able to deploy web applications that encrypt communication channels with browser-trusted certificates.
Most importantly, Let's Encrypt provide all the magic for free.
Let's Encrypt certificates are automatically issued by software participating in the ACME protocol. Therefore, we will need to run such a software on a Raspberry Pi web server for serving HTTPS with browser-trusted certificates.
Given that, let's see how we can install Certbot on Raspbian Buster.
When a single board computer has 4GB of RAM, you can use it as a capable IoT gateway or desktop computing. In addition to that, the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B maintains the same dimensions as its credit card sized predecessor, the Pi 3B+.
Although there are several single board computers which provided 4GB of ram, they are priced more than the US$55 price tag. Given that, the Raspberry Pi 4 Model 4 with 4GB of ram is a very attractive offering.
In case you are wondering whether you should buy the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B, read on for more perspectives.
That's all for now...
