  • Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS released
    The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce the release of Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS
    (Long-Term Support) for its Desktop, Server, and Cloud products, as well
    as other flavours of Ubuntu with long-term support.
    Like previous LTS series, 20.04.4 includes hardware enablement stacks
    for use on newer hardware. This support is offered on all architectures.
    Ubuntu Server defaults to installing the GA kernel; however you may
    select the HWE kernel from the installer bootloader.
    As usual, this point release includes many updates, and updated
    installation media has been provided so that fewer updates will need to
    be downloaded after installation. These include security updates and
    corrections for other high-impact bugs, with a focus on maintaining
    stability and compatibility with Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.
    Kubuntu 20.04.4 LTS, Ubuntu Budgie 20.04.4 LTS, Ubuntu MATE 20.04.4 LTS,
    Lubuntu 20.04.4 LTS, Ubuntu Kylin 20.04.4 LTS, Ubuntu Studio 20.04.4 LTS,
    and Xubuntu 20.04.4 LTS are also now available. More details can be found
    in their individual release notes:
    Maintenance updates will be provided for 5 years for Ubuntu Desktop,
    Ubuntu Server, Ubuntu Cloud, and Ubuntu Core. All the remaining
    flavours will be supported for 3 years. Additional security support is
    available with ESM (Extended Security Maintenance).
  • Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS Released, Available to Download - OMG! Ubuntu!

    The fourth point release of Ubuntu 20.04 LTS is available to download.

    Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS is a newly-spun installer image that contains all core security patches, bug fixes, and app updates released to Ubuntu 21.04 since the release of Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS back in August of last year.

    Periodic refreshes to the install media is a necessary task for a long-term support release as it cuts down on the number of post-install updates a user needs to install.

    If you use Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and you install all issues updates as and when they’re releases you do not need to reinstall. You’re not missing out on anything. You already have everything included in these new images.

    Linux 5.13 is the big lure of this point release, carried over from October’s Ubuntu 21.10 release. Linux 5.13 introduces a bunch of tweaks including better EXT4 support, a new cooling driver for modern Intel CPUs, and better support for peripherals including the Apple Magic Mouse 2 and the GK6X mechanical keyboard.

    Other updates bundled with the new ISO include GNOME Shell 3.36.8, LibreOffice, and Mozilla Firefox 97.

  • 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.
