A More Secure Wordpress Setup for Raspberry Pi

Wordpress on Raspberry Pi (secure)

In my previous tutorial for installing Wordpress on a Raspberry Pi, I showed how to do a "quick and dirty" installation, by changing ownership of the whole Wordpress installation folder to the web server process (www-data). This gets the job done, because Wordpress is able to make changes to its own configuration files, themes and plugins.

Raspberry Pi Print & Scanner Server

Got a spare RasPi knocking around? Why not hook it up to your all-in-one and use it as a handy print and scanner server?

I have previously tried to get my multifunction printer/scanner working with OpenWrt, but ran into difficulty with the scanner. Having tried it with the RasPi, I'm pleased to report that it's as easy as Pi ;)

Print server capability is provided by the Common Unix Printing System (CUPS), and scanner capability is provided by Scanner Access Now Easy (SANE).
