  • The Humble One Special Day Bundle 2019 has a solid Linux selection

    Humble are once again doing a game bundle in support of SpecialEffect’s One Special Day fundraising event, a really great charity worth supporting and the Linux games in the bundle are a good choice too.

  • The super relaxing building and crafting RPG 'Littlewood' now has a Monster card game

    Not played it yet? Littlewood was inspired by the likes of Animal Crossing, Dark Cloud and some classic bits of Runescape. It could also be compared with Stardew Valley, although it does have a very different look and feel a lot of the basics are the same. Littlewood is one of those reasonably rare super sweet experiences that can help you relax as you just zone out and appreciate the joyful atmosphere of it.

  • Psyonix have announced what is replacing Rocket League loot boxes and it sounds reasonable

    One change I am particularly happy about is Rocket League removing all loot box gambling and Psyonix have now announced it's happening in December along with what will replace it.

    When writing about their original announcement back in August, I suggested they might replace loot boxes with a still randomized system but you would see the contents and an item shop. Guess what? I was right.

    Instead of loot boxes, they will have a Blueprint system. It will be a random drop and possibly have special attributes but you know exactly what it is. There will also be a dedicated rotating item shop to buy items from, with a new Credits premium currency that will be used for basically everything including making items from Blueprints, upgrading to the Premium Rocket Pass and buying from the shop.

  • 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.
