Raspberry Pi 4B as Web Server

(1/7) > >>

TraderGary:
I recently purchased a CanaKit Raspberry Pi 4B, 128GB SD, 8GB Memory.
It's a nice kit with everything needed and a nice case with a fan.
I figured why not max it out for the small extra cost.
You can never have too much storage and processor memory.

After a lot of learning and work I have it running totally headless on my Windows 10 PC using RealVNC VNC Connect.
I also have ssh Linux command line control using windows PowerShell.
The only physical connection to the Raspberry Pi 4B is the power cord.
VNC even has a fully functional Android app!

Has anyone here set up an Apache Web Server on their Raspberry Pi?
Experience, advice, and help will be very much appreciated.

I've done this several times.  For various applications, too.  Example: https://randomnerdtutorials.com/raspberry-pi-apache-mysql-php-lamp-server/ 

Be sure you back up EVERYTHING!!!  It is a bit of work to recreate it, so clone your final  set up before you go to production phase.

I have done this twice:

Sitting on a 128GB SD and a Zero waiting for a logger to test.

The Apache server seems to set up pretty easy from the steps.

TraderGary,
After you get the Apache set up & functional,  use your RPi to control the webcam.  The RPi is the easiest by far for taking the images,  resizing to meet size/shape requirements and over laying your weather data onto the image.

Yup!  Imagemagick is da bomb for this.
