Local HTTP server

as root:

  • Install nginx on the RPi
apt install nginx
  • In the browser from another computer on the network, check that you the default HTML page is properly served: http://192.168.1.XXX (you should see a small "Welcome to nginx!" text).
  • create a non-default mini static website:
mkdir /var/www/partyvan
echo "OHAI" > /var/www/partyvan/index.html
  • disable nginx default site
rm /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/default
  • create new nginx site config /etc/nginx/sites-available/partyvan with:
server {
    listen 80 default_server;
    listen [::]:80 default_server;

    root /var/www/partyvan;
    index index.html;

    server_name partyvan;

    location / {
        try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
