I’ve wanted to try out Yunohost for a long time, and now I’ve set up my first instance. And my second, because my first attempt at installing an application somehow borked the whole server Mistakes, you make them and you come out smarter, right?
In that spirit, I want to ask the senior users here what experiences you’ve made setting up Yunohost (and probably starting over from scratch once or … eleven times). The stuff that hasn’t made it into the documentation yet, and the personal preferences that never will.
- What is the first thing you do when you finished a fresh post-install configuration?
- What have you learned not to do again?
- What would you wish you had known when you first started out with YNH?
- Are there packages you prefer to run on the Debian system even though they are in the YNH app catalog?
Okay, that last one was a bit specific. I’ve used Debian on my work station for several years, and hosted a few services around the house over the years. With YNH I mean to make them available to family and friends outside our LAN as well, so I’ll personally be interested in learning about best practices opening our home server to the web.
All replies are good, though! I admit to being so green at hosting, I don’t even know what I most need to know Thanks in advance!
