  • Run Distrobox on Fedora Linux - Fedora Magazine

    Distrobox is a tool that allows you to create and manage container-based development environments without root privileges.

    Distrobox can use either podman or docker to create containers using the Linux distribution of your choice.

    The created container will be tightly integrated with the host, allowing sharing of the HOME directory of the user, external storage, external USB devices, graphical apps (X11/Wayland), and audio.

    As a project, it is inspired by Container Toolbx (all the props to them!), but it aims to have broader compatibility with hosts and containers, without having to require a dedicated image to use in Distrobox.

    What is MongoDB? MongoDB is an open-source database that is different from Oracle MySQL, Microsoft SQL, and other popular SQL database servers. Because this one is based on a non-relational document model. That’s why we called NoSQL database (NoSQL = Not-only-SQL) and makes it differs fundamentally from conventional relational databases. The meaning of its name is “humongous” founded by developer Eliot Horowitz in 2009.

    MongoDB is available in both community and Enterprise editions. The community version is good for SMBs, developers, individuals for testing and learning; whereas the enterprises with a heavy workload and require large-scale implementation should go for the Enterprise version.

  • 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.
