How to set up a lightweight web server on Raspberry Pi


There are a variety of web server software available for Linux-based platforms including Raspbian. Using the available web server software, we can turn Raspberry Pi into a 24/7 available portable web server. In this case, however, we must remember that Raspberry Pi has hardware limitations in terms of CPU clock speed, memory, etc. As such, we want to avoid running resource-heavy software (e.g., Apache) on Raspberry Pi.

Among web server software available for Raspbian, Nginx and Lighttpd are two of the most widely used lightweight web server engines. This tutorial will describe how to install and set up Nginx and Lighttpd web server on Raspbian-powered Raspberry Pi.
