It's cost me lots of hours over the years and every time I've to reconfigure Samba I'm in hell. So this is my guide on how to enable Samba sharing in Ubuntu.
Next to designing websites and programming, I also host the jodiBooks software. Ever since I bought my first computer, I have been learning how to use it as a server. That was more than 15 year ago. I learned a lot through all those year and now I’m doing it professionally. In these howto’s I share some of the hurdles I encounter and how I crossed them.
Subjects are: Ubuntu, file-sharing, virtual machines, website hosting.
For experimentation and testing I want to use Docker on our own server. Therefor I'm going to spin up a VM in which I'll install Docker on Ubuntu 18.04.
For testing purposes I often install Ubuntu 18.04 LTS server in VirtualBox. This guide show you (and me) how to do that.
Ubuntu is a great OS, but a lot is done through the terminal. If you need a GUI this is how you can enable screen sharing between Ubuntu and RealVNC.
Finding documentation or tutorials on how to host ASP.NET websites are rare. Most are written for .NET core. That's why I wrote a manual on jodiBooks' blog.
I couldn't find a proper guide, so I created this "How to host WordPress in AWS Lightsail" tutorial. One that is not based on the standard Bitnami image.
