Installing kanboard onto a Raspberry Pi

I wanted to try running the open source software "kanboard" on my Raspberry Pi.  The installation was pretty simple.

First, get updates.

sudo apt-get update

Now install the web server, Apache:

sudo apt-get install apache2

After this is finished, you should try to hit your Raspberry Pi with your browser (type in the address of your Pi and hit enter):

We also need php.

sudo apt-get install php5

And we need the sqlite plugin as well as unzip if you don't have it already:

sudo apt-get install unzip php5-sqlite

Now restart the webserver:

sudo service apache2 restart

And do:

   cd /var/www
   sudo mkdir html
   cd html
   sudo wget
   sudo unzip
   sudo chown -R www-data:www-data kanboard/data
   sudo rm
   sudo service apache2 restart

Now try to hit http://<your pi IP address>/html/kanboard from your browser, if you were successful you should see:
