In this tutorial I will show you how to build a beautiful home server with Raspberry Pi and Casa OS.
All you need is a Raspberry Pi 4B board, That's all.
Casa OS is a simple, easy-to-use, elegant open-source home cloud system that allows you to run self-hosted apps on your Raspberry Pi or other Linux devices. You can manage your files, share them across the network, protect your privacy data, and freely add disks and expansion spaces. Casa OS also has an app store with over 20 pre-installed docker based apps and 50+ community-verified apps.If you want to try out the casa os before the installation, use the demo site.
CasaOS fully supports Raspberry Pi. Also, more computers and development boards and fully compatible with Ubuntu, Debian, Raspberry Pi OS, and CentOS with one-liner installation.
Username is casaos, and the password is also same.

Now we have enough information about the Casa, let's try to install it. Before installing the casa, first boot your Raspberry pi with Raspian OS. Use the Raspberry Pi imager tool to do that.
Once installed, the software opens the tool.
Next, choose the OS type.
Then select the drive. One of the great features of this tool is we can add the SSH and Wi-Fi credentials directly into the OS file, even without turning on the Raspberry Pi. For that, select the settings icon in the tool.
Next, start burning the OS into the SD card.
Once the writing is finished, insert the SD card into the Raspberry Pi.
Then power on the device. The first time it will take some to boot and connect to Wi-Fi to 5–10 minutes and look at your router status, you can see there will be a new device connected to your router.
Next, use serial terminal software to communicate with SSH.
Then run this command to install the casaos.
