Home server step 4: make it an Indie Box!

Here comes the fun part. Let’s make it an Indie Box!

If you don’t know, the Indie Box Project makes it much, much easier to install and maintain web applications on all sorts of Linux devices, from the Raspberry PI to fairly capable servers like my home server. I’ve been really wanting to take some of my web applications home, and this is my chance to do it!

To install Indie Box, we follow the instructions here:

Add these two lines to the end of /etc/pacman.conf:

Server = http://arch-depot.indieboxproject.org/dev/$arch

We trust the Indie Box buildmaster, update and install:

pacman-key -r F55B8552153EC14D
pacman-key --lsign-key F55B8552153EC14D
pacman -Suy
pacman -S indie-box

That was easy. Done! Go to step 5.
