By default, Raspbian runs from a MicroSD card on your Raspberry Pi. Micro SD card performance in terms of speed and reliability tends to be considerably less than with USB Flash storage. This tutorial will guide you through the process of installing Raspbian on a USB Flash drive from Microsoft Windows. Once you’re done, your Raspberry Pi’s performance will increase considerably.
In this tutorial, I will go through the steps necessary to create a RAID volume in Raspbian OS on your Raspberry Pi. RAID allows redundant, quick or extended storage depending on which RAID level you go with. I’m going to assume that you’ve followed my previous tutorial on how to install and run Raspbian OS from a USB Flash Drive, although this isn’t necessary.
As we’re using a software RAID controller, we can’t run the OS from our RAID volume, but we can use to for storage. This tutorial is part one of two where we will use our RAID volume for creating our own cloud storage platform using OwnCloud. View the Installing OwnCloud on Raspberry Pi tutorial.
I’ve written countless plugins for WordPress over the years in work and for my own personal projects but never had I created on with the intention of adding it to the WordPress plugin directory until recently. This post outlines my experiences when writing my Tides Today WordPress Plugin and hopefully answers some of the questions I found myself asking.
This article is targeted at those adding a plugin to the WordPress plugin directory, especially if you have Git services like BitBucket or Github and have no experience with SVN.
This guide will help you through the steps necessary to install Raspbian (current version at the time of writing, Raspbian Jesse) onto a USB Flash drive from MacOS (OS X) or Linux (ie Ubuntu). You will need a good quality USB Flash Drive, a USB MicroSD card and a Raspberry Pi (I’m using a Raspberry Pi 3 with WiFi).
Cutting a long story short, I’ve decided not to part with the site, and will resume writing tutorials. This is where you guys come in. Here’s the tutorials I’m planning to write in the coming weeks:
- Install Nginx on a Raspberry Pi
- Use a Raspberry Pi as a load balancer
- Install WordPress on Nginx on a Raspberry Pi
- Install WordPress on Apache on a Raspberry Pi
Using the comments field, tell me which you guys want to see first, or if there’s any other tutorial you’d like to see, let me know. Bye for now!
