LES Wiki - work in progress.

edited January 7 in General

The LES wiki is going to be very much a work in progress and will take over all 'list posts' in time, I have made it visible for now with a top bar link.

Eventually, when I move talk.lowendspirit.com to lowendspirit.com it may replace the current 'blog' based on grav completely, that is still under consideration though.

Suggestions on content for the wiki are welcome please :)

    Well, I don't think it is the right format to have the actual guides in but it will be great to link to them when they are written :)

    You're gonna take a mega SEO hit on that if I'm not mistaken. Subdomains are scored separately so basically start from zero

  • Great job @AnthonySmith

    How can we contribute?

    @kuroneko23 said: Users can contribute (write) to the wiki as usual?

    nope, at least not directly, I can't afford the time to moderate the spam and dead stuff.

    @icry said: A 301 Cloudflare Page Rule should take care of passing the Link Juice in sometime

    That was what I was hoping, but the place is only a year old I can live with the 'hit'

    @ferri said: How can we contribute?

    I guess the only way I can think of right now is to make a wiki contributions category when it gets approval I will take the content and push it into the wiki.

  • Sounds great =)

    Just some ideas:
    Self-Hosting
    Backups
    DNS
    Security Hardening/Tips

  • AnthonySmithAnthonySmith AdministratorHosting Provider

    if anyone has any scripts or configs they use and want to share that would be great, I am not talking about self-made software suites but more like backups scirpts, one liners to do xyz, nginx/mysqld conf's etc etc

  • Noticed that only Nexusbytes is listed under hosts giving free Blesta, but according to their website BuyVM also does so. :)

    Thanks, yes, it will take a while and good people like you to help get that info on the site, I am seemingly incapable of keeping all of these things in my head these days :) good job I am making a directory eh!

    Have you asked your provider to do push-ups yet? Ask at the next downtime.

  • In regards to how-to guides to install generic xx service or program, don't see a need for them here as there are already 1000's of same guides already available with a google search. If anything, more vps specific how-to's such as Anthony already mentioned : "backups scripts, one liners to do xyz, nginx/mysqld conf's etc etc.

  • @Weblogics said:
    one liners to do xyz

    One liner to break OpenVZ 7 so bad that it would require a reinstall:

    rm -rf /etc/network/interfaces; mkdir /etc/network/interfaces
    

    I found this when I'm trying to stop SolusVM from overwriting my config. Apparently this breaks the container and it will never boot again.

    One liner to stop SolusVM from messing up the config:

    chattr +i /etc/network/interfaces
    

    Tested on Gullo's Hosting Canada.

    i would settle in installing k3s master on proxmox-LXC.

    I spent like five minutes. All I did was run virt-host-validate.

    Today I have a new customer who wants Stripe. I can imagine Stripe being harder than running KVM inside LXC. :) Any tips on Stripe?

    yep, that can do the trick however I would suggest that if you need to edit the network config, you probably should not be cheeping out on OpenVZ anyway.

    I will have a look later I may have some bash scripts lying around. Maybe not the most actual ones but still working I hope.
