  • Write your own Red Hat Ansible Tower inventory plugin - Red Hat Developer

    Ansible inventories can be static (stored in a file and managed in a source code repository) or dynamic (retrieved from an external web resource, such as through a RESTful API). Dynamic inventories are generated on-demand using inventory scripts or inventory plugins, consisting of code that Ansible runs to get a list of hosts to target when executing playbooks.

    Red Hat Ansible Tower, also known as AWX (the name of its upstream community project), is a front-end to Red Hat Ansible Engine that simplifies operations on large IT infrastructures. Operators can log into the Ansible Tower web interface and create single jobs or complex workflows using Ansible Engine building blocks such as tasks, roles, and playbooks. Enterprises typically manage assets in a configuration management database (CMDB), such as NetBox, which Ansible Tower connects to using a specially written script or plugin.

  • 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.
