Hi,
I was wondering if anyone else is running the Raspberry Pi as a webserver and if so how they are getting along? I have mine setup as a mini home websrver for development work but not sure how it would cop with being linked to the outside world!

Hi,

If it went live and was hosting a website on the www then as soon as there are a few people looking at the website at the same time (depending on how big the website is) then because the Pi only has up to 256mb of RAM, the website would slow down dramatically or just crash. Maybe if it was a one page text and a picture site then it might be ok.

Steve

Nice one, I think as long as there is no heavy load on it, it probably will be fine. Such engenious things those raspberryPi's.

they are awesome using another of mine as a media server got three more on order, one for the kids, one for the bedroom tv and one for in the kitchen tv, the two tv ones are so we can stream films tv shows etc we have recorded, and the one for the kids as its cheaper than running a pentium 4 pc for simple web surfing, and the fact they have the habit of leaving it one.
