Day 26 of #100daysofhomelab

Day 26 of #100daysofhomelab and I have been trying to figure out why my internet has been unstable today… it up and down a few times… well, parts of it are… Zerotier seems to be sorting out my main network, it’s smaller parts that are going wonky… I am half thinking of leaving it till next weekend since my RB5009 arrives next week… This should help me sort out my network…

Also, spending time upgrading my WordPress site too… just making sure all is working correctly… Fun times…

[Update]: I have managed to upgrade to PHP 8.2, the latest Nginx and now have Varnish in front of the site… Let’s see what breaks…

Day 9 of #100daysofhomelab

Well, day 9 of #100daysofhomelab is about Disaster Recovery… Well, at least the disaster part… Recovery not so much… My Kubernetes cluster, how do I put this… shat the bed… It’s been up and down all day and then the Longhorn storage failed and took my WordPress install with it… I lost yesterday’s post (which isn’t the end of the world) but it’s a pain in the ass… I ended up using the old docker copy of WordPress, so at least that’s online.

So, going to shut down the full cluster and start again… Might be looking at something other than Longhorn for storage… but giving up for the day… I will be back tomorrow.

day 7 of #100daysofhomelab

Day 7 of #100daysofhomelab and just a quick update for today: this site is now running on my Kubernetes Cluster! I am using Cloudflare tunnels for the ingress controller (more on that later) and so far, so good… Most of this was done yesterday, and it was a swap over of the DNS stuff today… been sick most of the day, so that’s all I got in me for day 7…

day 6 of #100daysofhomelab

Day 6 of #100daysofhomelab and I have some progress on my Kubernetes cluster!

Then after a few min, it comes back online…

Also, I got WordPress installed in Kubernetes! Now to migrate this blog over… Hopefully before my next update tomorrow…

day 3 of #100daysofhomelab

Day 3 of #100daysofhomelab and more Kubernetes messing today. Haven’t got it working, but messing with it is a start. Some links and notes are below:

I am planning on moving my WordPress install over from my Docker host to Kubernetes in the next few days, so running through the docks from Bharathiraja above, but I keep getting errors related to MySQL… More digging is required. I use Cloudflare Tunnels to secure my WordPress install, so the docs on how to use Cloudflare Tunnels with Kubernetes are important…
