  • VirtualBox 5.2 to Let Users Export VMs to Oracle Public Cloud, Add GUI Changes

    Oracle's Director of Product Management Simon Coter recently announced the availability of the first Beta release of the upcoming VirtualBox 5.2 major version of the open-source and cross-platform virtualization software.

    VirtualBox 5.2 looks to be a great release that should allow users to export virtual machines to the Oracle Public Cloud so that they can easily use them on other machines without all the hustle of exporting VMs to external drives and then import them to another VirtualBox installation.

    Another interesting change coming to VirtualBox 5.2 later this year is automatic, unattended guest OS installation, similar to the "Easy Install" feature found on the commercial VMware Workstation 6.5 and 7 virtualization software. Additionally, VirtualBox 5.2 will improve the Virtual Machine selector GUI.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
