  • How to install Nextcloud 22 on Ubuntu Server 20.04 - TechRepublic

    The latest iteration of the Nextcloud on-premise cloud server has been released, and it focuses on knowledge management with a few new features that might well find their way to being your favorite. To make the collaboration workflow even easier, Nextcloud introduces Collectives, an app that makes it possible for users to share a set of "handbooks" with each other. This app is tied with a new group feature, Circles, which builds on the Nextcloud Text app.

    Collectives collects documents together, each shared with a different circle. Within those Collectives, you can create new pages, and those pages can have sub-pages that come together to structure a complete knowledge base.


    Click Finish Setup to complete the installation. You'll find yourself logged in as the admin user, where you can start customizing your Nextcloud 22 instance.

    Congratulations, you can now start working with the latest release of the finest on-premise cloud solution within your company data center.

  • Hyper-V vs. KVM: Select the right hypervisor for your IT needs [Ed: Comparing back-doored proprietary junk from Microsoft to something that actually works and is auditable]

    Microsoft's Hyper-V and Linux's KVM are capable, enterprise-class hypervisors that can host VMs and scale to the largest of workloads. These options are both type 1 hypervisors, but there are some significant differences between them when it comes to management tools, memory allocation and storage requirements.

    This makes it important for virtualization admins to understand how these hypervisors compare to one another. When organizations choose between the two, admins should select the hypervisor that best aligns with their existing infrastructure.

  • Ubuntu becomes #1 OS for OpenStack deployment

    One of the core values of Canonical, that we all identify with, is the mission of bringing the power of open source to everyone on the planet. From developing to developed countries. From individuals to big enterprises. From engineers to CEOs. And there is only one way to find out if we are efficient in what we do. This is community feedback.

    It is no different this time. The OpenStack User Survey 2020 results are out and Ubuntu was appointed by the entire OpenStack community as the most popular platform for OpenStack deployment. This is great news for Canonical and the entire Ubuntu community. It was a long journey, sometimes bumpy, but we made it. And we are not going to stop there!

  • Hostirian & Navy Linux Sponsorship
  • Hostirian & Navy Linux Sponsorship

    The deal was struck by Hostirian President, Ken Cox, with Navy Linux’s Adil Hussain on July 1, 2021. Hostirian is providing Navy Linux with dedicated servers. “We are excited to announce the sponsorship with Navy Linux,” Cox said. He also added, “With CentOS removing support, when the opportunity arose to partner with Navy Linux, it was an obvious solution for Hostirian. Navy Linux is currently the only option for in-place upgrades for CentOS.” The representative from Navy Linux also stated, “Hostirian will be one of the primary sponsors, relationships like this make Navy Linux possible. We are very excited about the opportunity for partnership.”

  • Rocky Linux Emerges as a CentOS Replacement

    Rocky Linux was created to offer the community an alternative following Red Hat’s recent decision to shift its focus away from CentOS—the open source version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). However, the Linux distro’s popularly can also be attributed to how its creator sought to offer a superior alternative based on lessons learned during CentOS’ development—and less as a perceived backlash to Red Hat’s controversial move, said Gregory Kurtzer, Rocky Linux’s creator, who is also founder and CEO of Ctrl IQ.

  • Huh, it's as if something happened that made people not like CentOS so much

    Canonical is cock-a-hoop after Ubuntu snatched first place for OpenStack deployment from the CentOS Linux distribution – but according to some the victory might ring hollow.

    The finding came from the 2020 OpenStack User Survey, organised by the Open Infrastructure Foundation, which queries respondents on a variety of topics, including the main operating system used for their OpenStack cloud deployments.

    The 2020 survey kicked off after IBM's $34bn purchase of Red Hat, and closed before Red Hat confirmed the community build of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), known as CentOS, would morph into CentOS Stream. The change to something perceived as not fit for a production environment left the knickers of many developers ever so twisted.

  • 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.
