Hey sysadmin friends, I'm getting myself a (newer) dedicated server to eventually retire the current one I have.
Any good resources on how to set up this boi properly? My current one is a mess patched up together over the years and I want to learn how to do that shit right so I'm all ears.
It won't go further than just a small webserver and a file-exchange-client-that-youre-probably-familiar-with so I guess it shouldn't be too complex.
@Eramdam Ad-hoc solutions are ok for small servers that don't do a lot of things
@val yeah but the previous one /really/ was messy, like "I have stuff i dont remember why it's there and i'm afraid to even reboot" messy 😅
@Eramdam Add a cron for daily or weekly reboots. I do it for a server, that's great for the peace of mind.
@Eramdam Also, etckeeper to version-control your config
@val I didn't know that was a thing, that sounds amazing
@Eramdam Well, it Just Works™ (at my previous two job we used Ubuntu Server in production and everything ran perfectly fine)
