Setting Up Hosting Server

In this video I show how to setup a Raspberry Pi web server and how to connect it to your own domain name (.com, .org, etc.). We start be installing Raspbian, then install software updates, and then install Apache, PHP and MySQL. After verifying that the web server is functioning properly, I show how to sign up for a domain name with Google Domains, and how to use their Dynamic DNS service so your domain will work with typical residential internet service providers. We also install TeraTerm and Swish SFTP on the Windows PC in order to interact with the Raspberry Pi over the network.

This video is similar to an earlier video I made around half a year ago, but this new video covers how to setup a domain name and the Dynamic DNS service.

I have a text summary of this video on my web site, so you don’t have to try reading the text off of the video:

  1. I used TinkerBoard and Debian OS instead of Raspberry and Raspbian. My Router is a D-Link one. I too configured port forwarding. It is not working in my case. I agree that I am novice in this web technology. I really don't know how come my TinkerBoard will be chosen if I just configure the said DNS update script for periodical execution that does the wget with domain server. Please explain.

  2. A great well thought out tutorial even a noob like me can understand and implement, a bit of sync errors between the audio and video(that cold be my side)and yes chrome does that often with no explanation even now 2020, well done and thanks.

  3. Great video, upgrdman. You have launched me into a new world! I had some trouble with SSH to R_Pi, but enabled it on the Pi by conveniently creating a blank ssh file on my SD card. I also had to make a small change to the .sh file you created here, as follows, echo " Last run : $(date +'%D %T')" >> dns_update_results.txt
    .

  4. [September 2020] – the tutorial works. I actually used NUC with MINT Linux and all is working. THe proble I`m having is that when I open my WWW the browser will say it is not Secure Web Site, probably because it is http:// and not https:// so will have to learn how to finish this great guide with HTTPS setup.
