To blog again is to live again. It has been a while since my WordPress blog has seen new content. For the past year or so, it has been in a broken state that I had to disable it. Before that, it has been repurposed to a Woocommerce site. Sadly , I have not seen anyone buy anything and I think I have not really taken the time to manage the ecommerce experiment. So, here I am trying to use the blog again this time using this Org2Blog Emacs interface. This is my first post using Org2Blog. I plan to keep at it since I really enjoy working on Emacs.
Here is how you run your own Poshmark share server.
- 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
- Install Python if you don’t have it already.
- Install Python Virtualenv (optional but highly recommended)
- Go into github and download the Poshmark share application.
- Install the needed requirements for the poshmark_sharing app.
- If you installed remotely, you can install XRDP or TightVNCServer
We are back up after we had a downtime after I upgraded FreeBSD. Not a total lost but I might have lost a few emails and blog posts here.
I will be diligently backing up from now on. Lesson not learned sad to say.
I am finally able to get a working LDAP working with my LetsEncrypt certificates.
The links that help me tremendously is Loga.us blog. I followed most of the instructions except for the replication piece. Also this Archlinux page gave me what i needed to fix the issue I was having.
Finally got to implement Lets Encrypt on my personal server. It feels good to transition from StartSSL to the free Lets Encrypt. I was able to use this on my Apache, Postfix and Dovecot installs.
I also setup a crontab entry to renew the cert every two months.
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???
Praying that America made the right choice. Time for people to shut up and get back to work. Peace!
