Wow, I am now self hosting my /e/ data!!
So it took me about 3 hours from spinning up a new VPS, locking down ssh and installing a firewall, and completing the self-hosting directions. I have photos uploading to my cloud, but email is not working yet. I have about 6 months experience with docker, so still fairly new at it but knowing how to install docker-ce and docker-compose already saved a bunch of time since I knew right away what some of the errors were when running the bootstrap script before those were installed.
There were some missing instructions when starting with a brand new Ubuntu install. To start out I already had ufw installed and was only allowing my ssh port. I found out from failures in the bootstrap script that these commands should be run to install prerequisites:
apt install curl
apt install certbot
sudo ufw allow http
sudo ufw allow https
It’s late now, so more to follow later.
