Setting Up A Web Server On A $99 Plug Computer
This article is a how-I-did-it article about how I got this running and configured. I'm not a Linux expert, so I'm sure there are things I could have done more easily or properly. But it works!
If you ever wanted to have your very own webserver running 24/7, you can now do it for a total investment of $99. This little champ will use only a few watts of power, and has no noisy fan. It runs great out of the box with what Tonido puts on there, but it is also pretty easy to put another Linux on there and install whatever packages you like. But the best part (especially for Linux noobs like myself) is that if you mess up , you can just yank your flash drive out and it will still boot the original OS.
The software is all open source, and freely available on the web. Getting a web server running is fairly easy. If all you want to do is host a website, then installing Apache would be enough.
In my case, I wanted to run Tomcat, which would allow the server to generate active content. I.E. instead of just fetching HTML pages and images, it will run my Java programs and create web pages as the user interact with my site.
