So impressive that I had to reinstall the entire OS and start over like 6 times that afternoon! :-)
I kept 'helping' it...
But complicated management scripts like yunohost are very brittle and don't take kindly to the earth moving under their feet!
Eventually, I stopped doing all the things I usually do to move into a new server and then things were fine - as long as I kept my grubby little fingers out of it :-)
As of now, the *only* changes I made manually were to ssh and to the ownership of one folder in /var, so a remote cronjob could write to it.
@gemlog @ademalsasa I have had similar experience. I did download and install a mega raid package for the raid card and a ups power manager package. It will politely shut itself down during a power failure now. You can manage the firewall with the yunohost command and you can renew ssl certs there. What I do is every 90 days or so I open port 80 on the firewall and renew all the let’s encrypt certs and then close port 80. Yuno host is happy to auto renew them but if you close port 80 let’s encrypt won’t issue. Glad you are all setup now.
I haven't controlled a ups in my life. I have installed them locally on client file servers and business computers. Best use of control was STONITH with DRBD :-)
I only have had public facing servers in NOCs like netnation and contabo, real iron and vps.
@gemlog @ademalsasa I tried and struggled self hosting with spectrum internet. They have abysmal upstream speeds. Google WebPass the fiber equivalent for apartments rolled out and it made it so I can reliably use the services away from home too. :-) I do have to upgrade the host soon. It’s only 4 core and 8 gigs of ram so it doesn’t like transcoding video or running mastodon and those are the next two tasks I’d like to do. Anyhow hope yunohost works well for you!
Ha ha! :-)
"I just use " thing-gemlog-never-heard-of !
I used "Install custom app " for a flat site I update via ssh cronjob, but I didn't know redirect_ynh was there.
I've never needed docker, so it wasn't until last night, at your suggestion, that I installed and ran it for searxng here at home.
I was going to put it on my other non-ynh vps, because it seemed simpler than fighting ynh and breaking it, because I know how to do it manually.
@freezr perhaps because they don't explicitly say that they are a GNU/Linux distro on the front page. Yes, it is similar to Freedombox GNU/Linux.
