I previously completed the steps of setting up a Raspberry Pi from an unconfigured box to a stable simple server over the network. In this post I will mount a hard drive and place mysql on it as well as data on a separate partition. We’ll also enable outbound emails, cron jobs as well as a few other bits. The topics covered will be a bit scattered. I should mention that as we dive a little deeper into the OS it’s important to note that this Raspberry Pi is running Raspian, a Debian derivative.
