      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.

Use Dropbox, OneDrive, or any other sync tool as storage for your git repros

You do not need to run a git server to share a git repository between different stations.
I like to separate strage & sync from the version control. You might see the advantage if you migrate from svn to git.

You only need 4 steps to create a Dropbox or OneDrive [insert your storage provider here] synced git repro:

  1. Create git repro
    git init --bare ~/OneDrive/gits/wlanrepo.git


  2. Add git to your project (the project should not be on your Dropbox/Onedrive)
    cd ~/projects/sites/wlanboy
    git init
    git add --all
    git commit -m “Initial commit of project wlanboy"


  3. Add the git repro as remote
    git remote add origin ~/OneDrive/gits/wlanrepo.git


  4. Push everything to your remote repro
    cd ~/projects/sites/wlanboy
    git push --set-upstream origin master



Try a "git log" and you will see that everything git-like is working.

      vpsBoard has a free git hosting service, in case anyone forgets: http://git.vpsboard.com
      There are only 14 public repos so far, why don't we go a little more?
      Here is a shameful example, based on an IRC legendary:

      In collaboration with @MannDude, I have set up a community git service, similar to GitHub. This service uses gitlab to provide project management and is run and hosted by @MannDude. The main intent of this service is to have a local, in-house way to host projects provided by the community. vpsBoard projects created for vpsBoard (like the in house advertising system and the dailyserverdeals.com project) will be migrated to this new git server.
      If you have a project that is server related or that relates to vpsBoard, feel free to host it on the in-house git service. Both public and private hosting is available for free.
      You can sign up here.
      Current public projects can be found here.
      The url of the site is http://git.vpsboard.com/
      Here are some screenshots of the service:
