Web2py and Apache running on Raspberry Pi

As part of my smart-cam simulation project I have installed web2py and Apache on a Raspberry Pi, the idea here is to simulate the ARM platform on which the smart-cam web UI software will eventually run by using the Pi until the real hardware is sorted out and available. This will allow me to do some proof-of-concept software development sooner rather than later.


I was expecting a difficult enough install but it turned out to be very easy, I just executed the automated set-up script that is documented here, under the section called ‘One step production deployment’ (ubuntu).


To summarise the steps, with the Pi connected to the network, open a terminal window and execute the following:


wget http://web2py.googlecode.com/hg/scripts/setup-web2py-ubuntu.sh
chmod +x setup-web2py-ubuntu.sh
sudo ./setup-web2py-ubuntu.sh


Running setup-web2py-ubuntu.sh took a good while (15 mins?), but when it was complete I was immediately able to view the web2py welcome page from another computer on the network!

    What do you modify in .sh file? Web2py does not run on startup for me, but when I do service web2y stop and then service web2py start it starts.
