Last week I released a guide to setting up the Raspberry PI 2 Model B. Of course, as my age is kicking in, it obviously slipped my mind that I had already released another guide showing how to do the same thing back in March 2015. At least they both show how to do it in different ways.

Well, it requires the attacker to break into the target system by "brute-forcing SSH credentials". Wait. What? To get this you need someone to log in to your server!? Read more

The best Linux web hosting services of 2018

Linux hosting is everywhere. Whether you're looking for a simple shared hosting account or a powerful dedicated server, the chances are that you'll be offered a Linux-based option first. In many cases, you might not care. If your hosting needs are simple, you'll probably choose an account based on the allocated web space, bandwidth and similar features – the operating system is so far down most people's priority list that often it's not even mentioned in comparison tables.
