Assuming the DNS is playing ball now, my little personal site https://www.andrewjvpowell.com/ is now self hosted and solar powered. As @email@example.com can attest, running on the original nearlyfreespeech.net non-production plan could use as little as $0.01 per day so there’s not really any advantage to this, its just… because I can 🙃
(#ck25fya) eh yeah photos will come but I need to tidy the installation. I’ve had the solar setup itself for a while, a 160w solar panel on a regular deep cycle car battery powering an LTE Optus Broadband connection, which feeds into a GL-AR300 mini router connected to a 110m Ethernet run of cable back to my house. Its as Jerry rigged as it comes, but I live quite rural and its been a secondary connection as I only have a satellite broadband connection otherwise 😔 until Starlink lands anyway
(#ck25fya) the server itself is on a Raspberry Pi 3+. Probably the worst internet setup for a public server ever, but its been fine in my testing. Its even loading fine for me on my phone and I’m out and about at the moment, so I dont know why its not loading for others unless its a DNS propergation thing.
(#ck25fya) and it will need the “www” as well as https. Seems I’ll need a redirect..
To explain, because my ISP blocks port 80 and 443, I’m using Pagekite to tunnel it out, but im currently only running a tunnel to https.
(#ck25fya) yeah ill have to add a http tunnel when I get home. I have my Nginx config set to redirect to https from http requests but of course if i don’t have a http tunnel it would never get there. silly me 🤦♀️
