Website hosting on RPI 3B+?

1 comment

Hi,

 

I want to build a soccer tips website using nodejs and express and host it on a raspberry PI but I don't know what kind of performance can I expect from a 3B+.

I know I could just host it on a cheap platform, but I've wanted to get my hands on a PI for some time, and it will help me learn Linux (esp. the setup part that I can't risk on my notebook).

It would be a simple website, with a database like mysql to store the results from this api each hour and update modified predictions in my db, the front-end would use VUE and I will also need to send emails using this email API.

Would the 3b+ be able to handle up to 50 concurrent users?

 

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

Good point. One that I tend to forget as I have never had an ISP complain about my home server activities.

I don't think the number of concurrent users is an issue. HTTP is a stateless protocol. The connection is made, a request received, a response sent, the connection closed. With only 50 users there will almost never be more than one connection open at a time. Unless one is using websockets, for example, which keep the connection open for a long time.

Outgoing bandwidth use might be an issue. Sounds unlikely to me.

    Hi, I have been experimenting a lot and have done a clean install of Stretch at least two dozen times since received my 3B+. I am running around a 50% success rate with the Wifi turning on automatically.I don't see other reports of this so am assuming it's something I'm doing wrong. Anyone see anything wrong with my file? Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet. References: https://bit.ly/2q0Fyml Blockchain Application Examples Thanks
