Build a Stratum 1 NTP (Time) Server

The Raspberry Pi Model B was released in 2012 and, since then, a number of useful applications regarding this device have ensued. However, one particular application that is seldom overlooked when dealing with the Raspberry Pi is its ability to be used as a Stratum 1 NTP server and allow you to synchronize clocks across networks like the Internet. For me, this useful trick has actually made my entire office far more efficient.

Install WordPress on a Raspberry Pi using Nginx

Today we will install WordPress, the most popular CMS in the world (not to mention the fact that it runs Raspbian France) and see how to install it on the Raspberry Pi.

The Raspberry / WordPress compatibility exists since the beginning, nevertheless, the performances on the first Raspberry Pi were not incredible! Today, with the Raspberry pi 3 and the Raspberry Pi 2, it’s ancient history! Their processors and the RAM mounted at 1GB offers us the possibility to run more than correct way a wordpress site under Raspbian!

Use your Raspberry Pi to monitor broadband speed

In this article, we’ll show you how to use the Raspberry Pi to monitor broadband speed. This project involves a fair bit of setup, including downloading and installing some packages, writing a Python script, and more. But once we’ve laid the groundwork, we can automate our broadband monitor so that it keeps right on monitoring for as long as we want. The monitor will create a CSV (comma-separated values) file to your Google Drive and update that file once an hour. CSV is a very simple file format that can be opened in Microsoft Excel or imported to Google Sheets. Sound like a handy thing? Then let’s get started. This how-to will assume you already have Raspbian installed on your Pi.Read More

Turn your Raspberry Pi into a Always-on TorrentBox

Downloading and seeding Torrents from the computer or any other dedicated server consumes a very fair amount of energy, if you are seeding it 24×7. And it’s also not justified to put the laptop on all the time to just download the Torrent. So here our Pocket sized computer comes into picture: Raspberry Pi. It is a perfect choice for Torrent box as it consumes very little amount of power and can be remained on for long time. So you can have a cheap Torrent Box running all the time in a negligible running cost, downloading torrents for you. You can also run some other programs which require Raspberry Pi to be on for long time, like you can use it as Motion capture surveillance camera and can download the torrent at the same time. So let’s start!

There are mainly two most popular solutions for downloading Torrents in Linux System (Raspberry Pi): Transmissionand Deluge. Here in this Tutorial I am using Transmission, as I found it simpler, lighter and easier than Deluge.Read More
