Low power, single-purpose server using OpenWRT 02/06/2014
I use small WiFi routers running OpenWRT as single-purpose servers: mail, web, VPN, etc. The N600 is adequately fast, plus has a good amount of Flash, so I can configure a fairly complex server. I'll run Apache and WordPress on my most-recent system (the WordPress database will live elsewhere)
It's a bit of a hassle to build and install a custom, single-service OpenWRT, and a moderate hassle to unbrick the router if you screw it up while getting things running Just Right. But it can be done, and it's worth it to have a no-moving-parts, low-power server that you can tuck in the corner and forget about.
