ErrorDocument on Apache 2.4 (Rasbian Buster)

Good morning all. My web server is now running on Raspbian 10 (Buster) which uses Apache v2.4.38. The Pi which I am using is issue 2 which has run three virtual hosts since 2013 very reliably indeed, serving many hundreds of thousands of hits along with about 50odd-Gbyte of data, annually. I now hav...

Re: Keeping Raspian Wheezy ...

Thanks again, fruitoftheloom. The sources.list etc is now updated and amendments duly noted. I can't disagree that it would be ideal to upgrade to the current OS - I already have Buster on one of my Pi's 4.

Keeping Raspian Wheezy ...

Good morning all. I have about 8 Raspberries Pi in all, ranging from two originals from 2011(?) to two Pi 4s 4GB. One of my Pi's 2 serves as a very busy webserver (three sites) and the second Pi 2 acts as a pseudo domain controller and file server for my local area network. These two little gems rep...

I have just updated one of my RPi machines after several years of good running, from Debian Squeeze to Raspbian Buster. After installation I changed the default boot to command line rather than GUI Desktop as I need to do lots of configuration at this stage. However, I find that I have to sudo to ge...

Re: Prevent SD-Card Corruption

The thing is, Ed, that corruption is difficult to predict. You may have to wait weeks before the dreaded errors will appear, and stop your Raspberry Pi dead in its tracks.

You may be misled into a false sense of security in a 7-day only judgement.
