Why these Server Projects

There is a ton of Raspberry Pi server projects that you’re able to do. These servers are typically better suited for home or development use, where you don’t expect to be getting a ton of traffic.

Setting up a server on the Pi is a great way to learn more about LAMP stack, PHP, MYSQL, and other server technologies.

You can also set up some small private servers for games such as Minecraft. A massive limitation with getting gaming servers going on the Pi is usually the lack of compatible code and not enough resources to guarantee excellent performance.

These are just a few types of servers that you’re able to get running on the Pi. There is so much more that we will be slowly covering in the future. If you want to be kept up to date, then be sure to follow us on social or sign up to the mailing list.

If you’re after a broader range of projects, then be sure to check out the main page. It contains all sorts of Pi projects such as sensors, circuitry, networking, cameras, and so much more. There is just so much that you’re able to do with this simple microcomputer.

One thing a lot of people have trouble with the Pi is the Linux based operating systems. If you fall into this category, then it might be worth checking out some of the getting started guides. They will help you learn a lot about the basics.

I hope that you enjoy these server projects and that you don’t run into any issues. If you do find yourself having an issue, then be sure to leave a comment on the relevant tutorial.
