  • How to Setup Anonymous FTP in Rocky Linux 8.4

    FTP servers are commonly known to facilitate file transfers between clients and servers. Typically, ftp servers offer two types of access levels: Authenticated and Anonymous. The first method (Authenticated) requires a valid username and password in order to access the files and directories. The second method ( Anonymous) being anonymous, we can download files without restrictions. You can download files directly by using the default user "FTP" or "anonymous";

    Linux has many FTP packages, but only a few have a good design and provide even the most basic level of security, and vsftpd is among the most secure. This guide will teach you how to configure the VSFTPD server to allow anonymous FTP downloads without any restrictions. As part of this exercise, we'll install an FTP server on Rocky Linux 8.4.

  • How to run Windows 11 in a KVM virtual machine |

    First of all... "What!?! An article about Microsoft Windows on this Linux oriented website?!?!" Yes. Hey, I'm running Windows 11 as a KVM virtual machine on my Dell Latitude E6440 laptop that is 6+ years old... using Fedora 35 as my VM Host. I don't think Windows 11 would want to run on the physical hardware either... but the method I mention should make it work in many places that it would refuse to because of hardware requirements enforced by the installer.

This is my own command list for installing Arch Linux with GNOME Desktop.

    Following this guide you can install Arch Linux with GNOME 41.1 desktop, networkmanager, systemd-boot, btrfs, man pages and basic devel packages. I assume that you are using Linux when you create your installation iso. If you use Windows, then use Windows tools to create bootable USB Media.

  • 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.
