It is meant to function as a staging or testing server where you can  do compatibility test  latest wordpress version on your existing sites, or try themes, plugins,widgets or practice your coding skills in css & php before deploying into your production, then using rpi is a good option.

Components used and tested working:

Raspberry Pi Model B , installed with Raspbian GNU/Linux 8 Jessie (Kernel armv6l Linux 4.9.35+)
nginx(1.6.2-5+deb8u5) (Web Server)
php5 (php5 5.6.33)
mysql 5.5 (ver.5.5.59-0+deb8u1) (Database Server)

Before start the actual installation, update rpi packages

OpenELEC or short for Open Embedded Linux Entertainment Center, is a free and open source operating system that provides functionality as a complete media center as it is built around Kodi(previously XBMC).
