How to setup a Linux Web Server and use it to monitor your home!
Do you know how to setup a web server in IIS, but have always wondered how to setup a website in Linux? Have you always wanted to setup a web server, but you don’t want to use Windows and you don’t know where to start in Linux? Have you ever been interested in using the command line interface on Linux, but feel a bit overwhelmed at the prospect? Or maybe you have been interested in doing cool projects with a Raspberry Pi or Linux in general, but you don’t know the best place to dive in. If you answered yes to any of these questions, this is the session for you! Join me as we take a beginner’s approach to installing Ubuntu and building a web server. Throughout this talk you will learn how to setup a Linux machine from scratch, install Apache and MySQL through the command line, configure a database, clone a GitHub repository, deploy a website, and create scheduled tasks. Together, we will walk through a demo where we will configure a website and database to monitor a Nest thermostat and create a live web graph of its continued performance.
