There it is: a nice working nginx webserver with SSL, PHP, MySQL and HTTP2 on a Raspberry Pi3, but

I have no idea what to do with it.

Do you have one?

    Create a rest api which generates random strings (passwords) based on parameters you give it. Idk just a random idea haha

    second remove php and replace it with something lightweight, if you doing the random generator shit, just go with C on cgi (trust me there is barely any difference from php4 in syntax xD)

    @Artemix i know, this is the third or forth time we end up in this convo, and i point out that I'm using 7.1 on arch linux, and 5.6 on bsd, that was sarcasm

    Connect a 2TB HDD dock to it (external power source), and install Nextcloud.
    Congratulations, you just made a cloud.
    Did this a couple days ago, can't get enough of it!

    @wichardriezebos it can. Ocasional thunder may also occur, if you get it wet.

    Wipe all that, install a glassfish server and give it to me 👀

    What a coincidence. I tried to setup a local nginx server on my (windows) pc for a web development course today.

    But I gave up since it was late and confusing.
    Couldnt get php-cgi to work with it and changing the root folder didnt work either.

    I would lik nginx over apache, but apache just seems easier to install and configure on windows

    Set up an IoT, that'd be a good project

    Hmm, I have a question. What is the advantage of using nginx? On this moment I use Apache but I hear the name nginx a lot lately.

    @Jifuna for developing apache is fine.
    And for small companies as well.

    Nginx is specifically made for websites that have 10.000+ users.
    It can start thousands of workers to handle the load.
    This function only works on linux though.
    It also handles hosting multiple websites better i think

    I also hear its more secure, dont know about that

    Best thing about nginx is the streaming functionality, being able to play live , record, pull or push streams
