If you need to setup a high availability Galera cluster, you’ve come to the right tutorial! In 9 easy-to-follow steps you’ll learn how to configure MariaDB on your Debian / Ubuntu based servers to ensure your databases continue functioning in the event of a system failure.
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.
This tutorial covers the steps necessary to setup a working Gitea server using Docker / Docker Compose. I’ve created this tutorial with Debian 11, however it should also work fine for Ubuntu as well. The docker specific parts of this tutorial should work regardless of underlying Linux platform. If necessary, this tutorial will be updated to reflect any necessary changes.
This tutorial details how to configure networking for a static IP in Debian. Most Debian systems configure network settings one way, however, there is one exception to the rule that I’m familiar with that I detail how to configure well. This tutorial was written for headless Debian 11 “Bullseye” installs but should work with other versions of Debian as well. When new versions are release, I will update this tutorial as necessary.
This tutorial details how to configure a static IP in Ubuntu. This tutorial was written for headless Ubuntu Server 22.04 installs but should work with other versions – such as 20.04 – of Ubuntu Server as well. When updated versions of Ubuntu Server are released, I will update this tutorial as necessary.
This tutorial covers basic networking concepts regarding IPv4 addresses and their associated subnet masks and is not meant to be a guide to configuring more advanced network subnetting. By the end of this tutorial, you should have a foundational knowledge of the different reserved IP address ranges, their associated subnet masks, and the limitations to having multiple subnets.
