Just another WordPress site

Maybe you noticed . . .

When you look at the nice codeblocks we have in our docker blogs, you must have noticed that we blanked certain information like username, password, domain, for obvious reasons. As explained in another post, the internet is not a safe place. Also we sometimes used the “.env” file for certain parameters. Another thing we played…

Samba Server

Now you know we are big Apple fans, so it should come as no surprise that we have an Apple TV (actually several . . .) So it stands to reason that we need to make our media files available on the network. Now there are probably more ways to do this, but as the…

rSync Server

As promised, the followup on the Synology versus our server solution. So we knew that the Synology liked to use rsync, so logically we searched for a docker to do just that, and found this one. It does the job, and the server is recognized by the Synology, and is happily making backups ever since.

Duplicati

Before there was this great server I build together with my son, I had a Synology to keep valuable data. And to make it even safer, I ran backups to the Synology of my long time best friend. Now I liked the packages that were on Synology, and for some time was playing with the…

Ubooquity

Another little gem in all its simplicity is Ubooquity. If you have books and comics, and you would like to be able to read them on-line, this is the best one we found.

Chatting with RocketChat

You will never win from all the main-stream applications that are out there like WhatsApp, Signall etc, but how cool is it to be in full control of the data by hosting your own chat server.Below the YML as we used it. Remember to remove the marked mongo db section that is intended to create…

Using Bitwarden as a Password Tool

Happily using 1Password for a long time, we started to get annoyed by the business model, where you either have to pay for every new major release, or start paying a monthly fee. By chance I ran into a link of someone who described his top 10 dockers (https://www.blackvoid.club/docker-top-10-images-and-solutions/), and the first one was Bitwarden.…
