Need a quick and dirty way to display your Raspberry Pi's essential stats? Consider Raspberry Pi Sysinfo script. The entire solution consists of a single PHP script and a couple of graphics files, so deploying it is rather straightforward. First of all, make sure that Apache and PHP are installed on your Raspberry Pi. Grab then the latest release of the scripts, unpack the downloaded archive, and move the resulting sysinfo folder to the /var/www directory on your Raspberry Pi. That's all there is to it. Point your browser to (replace with the actual IP address or domain name of your Raspberry Pi), and you should see the overview generated by the script.

By default, the script uses the Yanone Kaffeesatz font which doesn't look all that good. Fortunately, you can easily fix that. Open the index.php file in a text editor, locate the {font-family: Yanone Kaffeesatz, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13;} line, and replace Yanone Kaffeesatz with the font you like.
