Just posting to share my excitement in setting up my first bitcoin-handling web server.
After learning a lot about Linux server administration at my summer internship, I've successfully configured the old computer in my room (which I'd prior turned into a server) to run bitcoin with the JSON-RCP PHP framework.
This excites me not only from a proponent of bitcoin's perspective, but also just as a general web developer because of how great of a stride it's been since even only a few months ago for me. I would like to use this new capability to tinker with the framework and see what sort of web applications I can contribute to the bitcoin community.
This isn't nearly as impressive as the mining rigs some of you have, but my main goal isn't mining. I hope to contribute to bitcoin's value by introducing more applications for it.
Does anyone have any tips for me from here? I've pretty much just echo'd getinfo() so far, and it seems pretty straightforward from here to scale to complex applications. I plan on reading the proper money handling guide, as well.
