User spacemonkey shows us how to get a FreeBSD web server set up on Raspberry Pi. Follow the link below for the full set of instructions.
The purpose of this guide is to provide step by step instructions on how to set up a system consisting of a Raspberry Pi credit card-sized computer, running the FreeBSD operating system and the nginx web server. The server is meant to operate “headless” (i.e. without a display or keyboard) and run at relatively low power (approximately 2 to 4 Watts). This guide assumes that the reader has some minimal familiarity with a Linux/Unix/BSD-like environment.
NOTE: Due to Raspberry Pi’s relatively low power CPU, some of the steps described below (e.g. compiling software) will take a few hours. Patience is a virtue :)
Aside from patience, you’ll need the following hardware:
– Raspberry Pi
– Power supply for the Raspberry Pi
– USB keyboard
– Display (with HDMI or Composite video connector)
– SD Card (recommended minimum size 4 GB)
– Ethernet cable
– A BSD or Linux PC with an SD card slot
