Hetzner offers a lot of storage space for very little money with its storage boxes.

In this guide I want to show you how to run oCIS (ownCloud Infinite Scale) on your own VM and store the data on a Hetzner Storage Box with S3.

You already use your domain for a company website and now you want to use Mastodon with your domain?

It is possible to install Mastodon on a subdomain (mastodon.example.com) and still be found in Fediverse under example.com. Mastodon is a decentralized microblogging network, that is similar to Twitter, and can be self-hosted on your own server.

Mastodon is a decentralized microblogging network, that is similar to Twitter, and can be self-hosted on your own server.

Unlike Twitter, Mastodon consists of many different servers that are connected worldwide. This connection is established through the so-called Fediverse.

It doesn't matter if you create your account on your own self-hosted Mastodon instance or if you create an account with one of the numerous providers. Since all servers are connected, you can interact with your account from anywhere.

Since the sale of Twitter to Elon Musk there is a huge growth of accounts within Mastodon. If you want to get your own Mastodon server, I'll show you how to start your own Mastodon server with Docker and Traefik.

OwnCloud decided to develop a completely new product a few months ago. In the meantime, there are already the first beta versions of the new OwnCloud with the name oCIS. oCIS stands for ownCloud Infinite Scale and should make clear that this cloud solution should be very scalable.

Newly, it is sufficient to start a single container with oCIS, which already contains all the necessary dependencies. So no database and no further containers are necessary to self-host oCIS.

In the following I would like to show you a setup how I run oCIS with Traefik as reverse proxy on my own server since the release of the first tech previews.

AdGuard Home is a Selfhosted DNS server that can block Ads and Malware Domains inside your network. AdGuard Home is an alternative to a PiHole, with one big advantage: AdGuard can natively do DNS-over-TLS and DNS-over-HTTPS, and expirmentell it even provides support for DNS-over-QUIC. With a PiHole this would theoretically be possible as well, but you need additional software and some manual configuration.

For this reason, today I want to show you how to set up AdGuard with Docker. We will use Traefik as a reverse proxy and focus on DNS-over-HTTPS.

Standard Notes is a note-taking app that you can use on all major platforms and mobile devices. With Standard Notes, your notes are end-to-end encrypted and therefore protected from prying eyes.

I've been a fan of Standard Notes for a long time. Unfortunately, the annual subscription has always been too expensive for me and I have only used the free version of Standard Notes. Besides the hosted version of Standard Notes, there is also the possibility to install your own self-hosted Standard Notes instance on your server. With all premium features and even for free.

Unfortunately, I haven't found any instructions on how to set up Standard Notes together with Docker and Traefik as a reverse proxy. Therefore I decided to explain my setup to you.
