  • Jakub Kadlčík: Running fedora-review after Copr build

    The single most requested feature in the last Copr RFE survey was support for an automatized running of the fedora-review tool after builds. We finally deployed it into production.

    [...]

    Many people use Copr as a stepping stone towards getting their packages into the official Fedora repositories. The Package Review Process can take a while and Copr is often used for testing the package before it goes to Fedora, and as a temporary repository for users. One of the mandatory steps of the review process is checking the package with the fedora-review tool.

  • 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.

  • 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.
