A few people wanted a 1 GB image for Raspbian Server Edition, and I finally got around to putting it together !

It’s the same 2GB image that has been repackaged into a 1GB image.
It has been resized so it should fit any 1GB SD card in existence.

You can Download it here !

Version 2.4 has been released. Pick it up here

Overview

Raspbian Server Edition is Raspian with a lot of the GUI and other non-essential utilities stripped out. It’s meant to be used as an easy to deploy base for servers of any kind. It keeps the core of Raspbian with no extra utilities slapped on.

Details

Raspbian Server Edition 2.3 is based on the 2013-02-09 release of Raspbian. Disk usage is down to around 570 megabytes.

I’ve stripped out approx 283 packages in this release. The full list can be found here.

An image is also available for your downloading pleasure.
The tar.gz version can be found here

As a continuation this post, I have completed the first version of the RaspAP WebGUI. I have yet to decide on a good name for it though.

If you would like to download it to try it out, the links to the PHP script and supporting files are here –
Zip Version
tar.gz Version

Specific instructions to install the supported software are in the post linked at the beginning of this post.
For a quick run through, read on !
The Packages required for the WebGUI are –

  • lighttpd (I have version 1.4.31-2 installed via apt)
  • php5-cgi (I have version 5.4.4-12 installed via apt)

along with their supporting packages, php5 will also need to be enabled via the following command and lighttpd restarted.

sudo lighty-enable-mod fastcgi-php
/etc/init.d/lighttpd restart

/etc/sudoers will also need to be updated with the following line –


www-data ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:/sbin/ifdown wlan0,/sbin/ifup wlan0,/bin/cat /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf,/bin/cp /tmp/wifidata /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf,/sbin/wpa_cli scan_results,/sbin/wpa_cli scan,/bin/cp /tmp/hostapddata /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf,/etc/init.d/hostapd start,/etc/init.d/hostapd stop,/etc/init.d/dnsmasq start,/etc/init.d/dnsmasq stop,/bin/cp /tmp/dhcpddata /etc/dnsmasq.conf

Once those modifications are done, unzip the files to /var/www and it should be up and running !

Keep in mind that this is a very very first alpha version of this.
In testing, it worked for me, but if you have issues or feedback, please feel free to contact me or comment on this post 🙂 I look forward to hearing back from anyone who has tried this out 🙂

** UPDATE **
Version 2.3 has been released

I have updated Raspbian server edition with a packagelist that I have stripped out of the 2012-12-16 version of Raspbian.
The packagelist can be found here, and the script to remove them can be found here. 242 packages were removed from the original Raspbian installation.

To use it, download the script and the package list to the same directory, and then run the command ./pkgs.sh pkgs.txt as root to remove the packages.
An image will be available soon.

An image is now available for download.
You can get it here

** Update **
Forgot to mention for any new Linux users, if you are using the image straight off the bat, you may want to regenerate the SSH Server keys for security reasons.
The commands to do this are :

ssh-keygen -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key -N '' -t rsa
ssh-keygen -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key -N '' -t dsa
