You see the result here 😉 From Performance viewpoints I can trustfully say that the RaspberryPi 2 has enough resources to manage Apache server, mysql and ownCloud – my current setup.
Here is my webserver:
And now to the main task: installing a WordPress blog!
First of all – if you haven’t done it yet – install the following packages:
>> apt-get install apache2 mysqlserver
During the installation you will be asked for a mysql password, you will need it later in the ‘creating the database’ subsection. More Information concerning the Apache webserver can be found here.
- Go to the WordPress site, download the zip-file and store it on your RaspberryPi or download it directly:
>> cd /var/www >> wget http://wordpress.org/latest.zip >> mv latest.zip wordpress.zip
- Move and extract the file in the Apache web directory:
>> mv wordpress.zip /var/www/ >> cd /var/www >> unzip wordpress.zip >> chown -R www-data:www-data wordpress/
- The next step is creating the database:
>> mysql -u root -p >> Enter password: MYSQLPASSWORD >> CREATE DATABASE wordpress; >> CREATE USER 'wordpress'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'userpassword'; >> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON wordpress.* TO wordpress@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'userpassword'; >> flush privileges; >> exit;
- Now open your webbrowser and type in the following URL (depends on the name of your RaspberryPi which has been set via the main RaspberryPi setup): http://raspberrypi/wordpress/
- You should now see the wordpress configuration site, there you should follow the installation wizard.Database: wordpress
Password: your set password
- Congratulation! You have successfully installed WordPress!
- for directory browsing in the command shell I use the MidnightCommander. I also prefer the internal editor which can be found in the configuration menu.
>> apt-get install mc >> mc
- Change the default webpage directory of your Apache webserver:>> mcBrowse to /etc/apache2/sites-available/Open default [press F4] and change the following paramters:
... DocumentRoot /var/www/wordpress ... <Directory /var/www/wordpress> ...
- Save and close the file [F10] Restart the webserver. It should look like this:
- Restarting the Apache webserver
>> service apache2 restart
Congratulation! You have successfully installed WordPress!
