  • How to Create and Use Container Volumes within Portainer

    Portainer has become my favorite tool for managing containers. With this web-based GUI, you can do just about anything you need to work with your Docker containers. It’s powerful, flexible, and very user-friendly.

    With Portainer, you can manage nearly any aspect of your containers, from building and deploying single apps/services and even full-stack applications. Another area that Portainer really shines in is the creation and usage of volumes.

    What are Docker volumes? Simple. Imagine you deploy an application or service that stores data. If you deploy the container without a volume, the data will be stored within the container, and accessing that data from another container might be challenging. Even worse, should something happen to that container, the data it housed could get hosed.

  • How to check internet speed using command in Ubuntu Linux - Linux Shout

    Let’s learn the steps to check the internet speed on your Ubuntu using the command terminal without using the browser.

    The bandwidth describes a frequency range in which electrical signal transmission is possible. The greater the difference between the lower and upper frequencies, the greater the bandwidth, and the more information can be transmitted simultaneously. On the Internet or with a DSL connection, a high bandwidth stands for fast surfing. Classic ADSL connections (for example, come to 16 Mbit/s, with VDSL and fiber optics 100 Mbit/s and more are easily achieved. For most applications on the Internet, however, the “slower” bandwidths of 16 Mbit/s are also sufficient.

    However, there are many web tools that we can easily use to check the internet speed. But what if you are using a Linux server with only a command-line interface. Then here is the solution.

  • 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.
