How to configure Raspberry PI Zero W

How to configure Raspberry PI Zero W

It is recommended to use the system installer from the raspberry pi website to record the operating system.

  1. Go to https://www.raspberrypi.org/software/

  2. We download and install the installer on our system

  3. Run the installer and select the operating system and the raspberry pi sd card connected to the computer

  4. We wait for the installer to finish downloading and recording to the system image card.

Then by adding an empty file named ssh in the boot partition, the system will start us to access the SSH service.

In order for our RPI to connect to the home network, the following text should be added to the file rootfs/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf.

network={
	ssid="network name"
	scan_ssid=1
	psk="network password"
	key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
}

Now we just need to specify the IP address of our device and we can easily log into the system via ssh.

ssh pi@<IP address>

The default password for the user pi is raspberry.
