I wrote a blog quite similar to this one less than 6 months ago, but given how much has changed I though another FreeNAS blog might be quite interesting (at least for me!) …(more…)
Whilst this blog is specifically about setting up LimeSurvey, it’s probably more about the steps to adding new Docker Service on my FreeNAS server.(more…)
So after my last post about Docker here, I’ve spent quite a bit of time playing with various configurations before finally settling on something that’s been running stable for the past week or so. I suspect it won’t be how I run things long term, but it should help me decide what the future looks like.
There have been lots of posts about Docker on the FreeNAS forums over the last 12 months, and I didn’t pay much attention to them. I could do everything I needed through a combination of Jails and VirtualBox VM’s so why did I need Docker? Well, to be honest, I still don’t know, but I have managed to create a bhyve VM running RancherOS and Portainer so I can try and find out!
When I get started on stuff like this, I like to try and get it finished, so unsurprisingly I spent some time yesterday evening looking at how I would recreate my CrashPlan VM, currently running CentOS in VirtualBox, using iohyve and bhyve.
