      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.

      -MannDude

  1. I have multiple web sites (and a few other processes) I want to run in an environment that is flexible and as low maintenance as possible. This includes my sites and customer sites, production and development. Most share a common platform (Python, Django, Postgres, Linux (mostly Debian)). I need to be able to give At the moment they are all running in separate VPSs, and some on shared hosting. The problem with multiple unmanaged VPSs is that it is a lot of stuff to manage. I have been experimenting with running the sites on a single VPS with multiple users. It is a "cloud" one so can be scaled up as needed, and there is only one OS and shared libraries to upgrade. The problem is relying on permissions to separate sites from each other, and to give users access to sites is quite fiddly, particularly as I am paranoid enough to run app servers as a different user from the code they exectute. I have not ruled it out as a solution, but it is not as straightforward as expected I thought of running my own VPSs on a dedi, which is cost effective, but adds one more component to manage. It gives me a lot of isolation. I think some sort of container or jail solution will give me the best of both worlds, but I am not familiar enough with it to pick suggestions? I am willing to consider using any *nix OS, although Debian Linux is what I am most familiar with. Resource isolation is not an issue: it will not be running anything I expect to cause problems. Easy admin and security are. Any suggestions?
  2. Many of us spend too many hours in semi isolation working from home. With that comes all sorts of downsides, the lack of exercise, lack of social in real life, lack of well, generally the outside world. How about if your life wasn't so strange (well it is becoming more of the norm with fewer employed folks and more people cooped up at home)? What if your entire town lived in one building? Making your commute to the post office a trip down the elevator. Kids off to school, that's a 5 minute walk in the building. The convenience store, it's on the first floor lobby area. City government, yes, it is in the building too. Welcome to Whittier, Alaska, population 177 and about an hour outside of Anchorage. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=naPguX84Amg
