Poshmark Share Server Howto

Here is how you run your own Poshmark share server.

  1. Install your favorite Linux/BSD distro on your fave VM host(Virtualbox for example)
    • In my case, I have FreeBSD and I was able to use BHyve. * details on next post
  2. Install Python if you don’t have it already.
  3. Install Python Virtualenv (optional but highly recommended)
  4. Go into github and download the Poshmark share application.
  5. Install the needed requirements for the poshmark_sharing app.
  6. If you installed remotely, you can install XRDP or TightVNCServer

Moving to #Freebsd ?

I am thinking of moving my main server to FreeBSD. My main goal is to learn the OS. I have gotten so use to Debian and It seems like it is no longer a challenge to me. At least I think with #FreeBSD, I do not have to worry so much with upgrading. Right now, since I track Debian Unstable, I have to constantly update when I am in there. Also I also have to update the kernel. All of this I know are avoidable. I could just go with Debian stable and I could just choose to use the distro kernel and not have to worry with compiling the kernel.

Anyway, I think this would be a huge undertaking. I probably would have to plan this in stages. For one, how do I migrate without significant downtime???
