Hi, I’m using YunoHost for some time now, and am part of the project team (mostly as translator and i18n related subjects).
As I just moved, here is my feedback about what I did, and how it went. Please note my personal experience (as any self-hosting one) is heavily connected to my setup :
- ISP: Free.
- Server: x86_64, an old PC
- Domain: personal, bought in OVH (registrar)
Before moving, once you know where you’ll move:
- check if optic fiber is available, call you ISP to make sure it is available! My building has optic fiber but Free can’t use it… --> ADSL…
- ask for previous inhabitant names, anyway, you’ll also need it for electricity,
- connect to your administration panel in Free and ask to move your line. You’ll have both line until the end of the month,
- makes whatever backups you’ll feel like needed.
Once in your new home:
- connect you internet router (we’re use to say
Boxhere), and wait for ADSL synchronization
- I made my move request on February 7th, and got my line activated on February 16th. This is slow…
- check your IPv4 IP with https://ip.yunohost.org
- change your DNS settings in your registrar (here OVH), with the new IPv4
- connect to your server web admin, and go in
Domain namethen your domain and read the suggested configuration. You’ll get your public ipv6.
- change your DNS settings in your registrar (here OVH), with the new IPv6
- connect to your administration panel in Free and enable SMTP
All missed emails came after a few hours, nothing was lost, every synchronization services (sms, contacts, agenda, etc.) worked fine too.
Issues I had:
- I forgot to enable SMTP, no big deal, emails are sent once you fix it, you’ll just wonder for a few hours why nobody notice your emails
- My IPv6 was misconfigured and it tool several minutes to connect through ssh or thunderbird…
Ssh can help you for this, just use
ssh -v email@example.com and it will show you the network part.
