Question How should I configure a server to remote control a Raspberry Pi ?

Hello, I've done researches and I don't know what technology to use, that wouldn't be too compicated but still involving manipulations with linux commands. I need to have a server on a Raspeberry pi in order to set it's pins states from a web page on another computer or smartphone. Thanks.

i think the easiest method would be to set up an ssh server so you could just log in and do stuff like:
gpio mode  3 out
gpio write 3 0
this depends on wiringpi:
