GhostBSD 21.09.06 Released For This FreeBSD-Based Desktop OS

  • GhostBSD 21.09.06 Released For This FreeBSD-Based Desktop OS

    GhostBSD 21.09.06 is now available as the latest release of this desktop-minded, FreeBSD-based operating system.

    The principal change with GhostBSD 21.09.06 is switching back from using OpenRC as the init system to FreeBSD's rc.d for this handling of starting services. GhostBSD had enjoying OpenRC's service status feature but in the end it wasn't worthwhile due to GhostBSD needing to keep the OpenRC handling up-to-date with FreeBSD services catering to rc.d. After spending more than the past month transitioning back, GhostBSD is now ready to go with using rc.d.

  • Unix derivative GhostBSD: New version 09/21/06 switches back to the rc init system

    The developers of GhostBSD have released version 09/21/06 of the free Unix derivative. In addition to minor bug fixes, there is a central change: the return to the rc init system. Because while FreeBSD (and OpenBSD) consistently used the classic rc init, GhostBSD used the modern OpenRC for a while, which is also used by Gentoo, Alpine Linux and (optionally) Devuan GNU / Linux. OpenRC works on a dependency basis, but is based on the classic SysVInit and can also start services in parallel if required.

  • 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.
