GearBest Monthly Deal Promotion: From Just $0.99 and Get Free Gifts


Update: 05/06/2016: I still run a server off a tablet, at a real domain address, which should no longer have any security issues,, the “new Tablet” server is up and running on my Dragon Touch X10 or Asus Z580CA Tablet almost 24 hrs per day.

The actual server hardware:

  • Like the title in the upper left says, this server used to be running on an ASUS HD7 MeMo pad. (Me173X).
  • So we are talking about a plain old 1.2ghz quad-core processor, 1 gb Ram. Not all that fancy and available for about $129 on Amazon.
  • Running Android version 4.2.2

The Web Server Software:

  • The actual web server app is called KSWeb. It includes lighttpd web server, php, Mysql, PHPMyAdmin and FTP software. It is free for 7 days and then costs $2.99, so it is cheap.
  • It is running on port 8080 because you would need to root the device to run on port 80 and I also run a Linux server at home on the default port (80).
  • In order to keep the IP updated constantly I use ChangeIP.com for free dns services and a little app called Dynamic DNS Update from Ice Cold Apps. That app also keeps the device from sleeping fully. (optional)
  • The actual page here is running on WordPress v4.01 which installed perfectly.
  • This particular site (I have several running for testing) is running the following plug-ins in WordPress (items that are linked have a review with helpful info) :

That is about all there is to it.  To set the entire thing up initially took roughly 30 min. Obviously the editing, tweaking and playing took a lot more time. But if you can install a few apps and put files in the correct folders and do a little port forwarding on your router you can be up and running in no time flat.

For more info on setting up a web server on your Android device you can read this article, which got me started. This short post also has some info from your’s truly on the subject.
