  • How to Add User to Sudoers on Ubuntu 20.04? – Linux Hint

    We are used to logging into the administrator account in Windows and using different things directly as an administrator.

    In Windows, User Access Control (UAC) was implemented because remaining logged in as an administrator presented a very simple security danger. With UAC, most programs run with restricted access, and Windows only prompts the user to ask for permission when a system file needs to be changed.

    In Linux systems, we can run administrative applications by using the “sudo” command. It allows us to run a program as the root user. If you frequently use root as your user, you will be exposed to the risk of giving your device full access to malicious programs.

    There are two options to add a user to the sudoers. One way is by doing it manually and the other is by using the usermod command.

  • 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.
