Pi-hole’s ability to manage local DNS records is one of its most useful yet least talked about features – especially in a homelab environment – regardless of if you’re running just a few simple services in your lab or something more complicated like a Kubernetes cluster full of containerized services.
This tutorial guides you through installing and using Certbot from behind a Cloudflare reverse proxy – without using snap packages as the EFF’s own documentation would instead have you do. While I understand why they’d choose to distribute the software using a “platform agnostic” format, I – like many others – am not particularly a fan of snap packages.
If you run multiple services on your network – especially using Docker – hosting a Nginx reverse proxy is an invaluable tool for making accessing those services easier. With this guide, you’ll have Nginx setup and configured in no time. While the bulk of the information regarding configuring Nginx will apply to any Nginx install, the scripts / instructions specific to installing the software will only work on Debian / Ubuntu.
This tutorial covers how to configure a Gitea instance on TrueNAS Scale with SSH functioning properly for server communication. As of the time I’m writing this tutorial, there are problems with getting SSH working when deploying Gitea using the TrueCharts catalog. I’ll update this tutorial when I’ve worked out how to resolve the SSH related issues with the TrueCharts install.
This short tutorial shows you how to add and verify SSH keys to a Gitea server. Configuring your Gitea account with a SSH key provides a level of security to your interactions with the server. These instructions should work regardless of how you’ve setup your Gitea server. This tutorial is part of a series on hosting your own Gitea server.
