Handling false positives in Modsecurity for the core rule set
Conditionally serving webp images with Nginx
Distance in metres between two spacial points in MySql
Finding nearest neighbours between two tables with point locations in spatialite
I don't think I've stopped researching and working since I set my VPS up last year. I love it!
Imagine this scenario:
I have a php driven website (eg wordpresss). The webserver runs as user www-root and a php-fpm pool is set up that runs under user:group site1:site1.
Does www-data still need access to the files or can I set my file permissions for the website directory based purely on user site1?

Upgrade my existing VPS with OVH (here in a UK datacentre), which will give me:
4 vcores (2ghz)
Or for around the same price, a dedicated server from hetzner, based in Helsinki that will give me:
Intel i7 6700 CPU (4 physical cores, 8 logical, 4ghz)
2 x 512gb SSD (raid-1)
Obviously I'm massively tempted by that 2nd offer. Where the OVH VPS wins though is in latency. A ping to my current website has a latency of 12ms. A ping to the Helsinki data-centre takes 41ms.
My question is.... is this enough to worry about?

All this on my 2 core 12gb ram VPS with 50gb SSD - although I may upgrade that to 100gb at some point.
Bye Bye #Gmail... I have my own mail server, using K-9 Mail as a client on my phone, and the Nextcloud IMAP app on the web.
I used to host my hillexplorer.com outdoors blog on shared hosting. Considering it's now on a not too expensive #VPS with various other apps, it's still much faster than it ever was on shared hosting - largely thanks to the Varnish caching system I installed.
Bye Bye Google Drive. #Nextcloud is a much sleeker system and I'm rather loving it. I may not get as much storage space but, let's be honest, I never needed all that anyway! Mainly used for documents, compressed personal photos, and compressed personal videos that I can share with family. The original files are stored the old fashioned way.... on my hard drive and backed up to USB pens.
I'm now running my own instance of #Collabora Office on my server for editing my documents whilst out and about - integrated nicely with Nextcloud
#Prosody XMPP installed on my server and Conversations used as a client on the phone. Gajim on the PC. I don't currently use any other chat app.
Photo Gallery (public)
I used to use #Flickr for all my outdoors galleries for the walks I did. I'm now in the process of migrating them to #Piwigo at https://gallery.hillexplorer.com. I was a bit worried at first that it was going to look ugly but managed to find a nice theme.
#Friendica - the best option for me at the moment as I don't really want to cut off either Diaspora or Mastodon. It's a nice interface too and the mobile apps seem to be coming on well. #DiCa is my choice app at the moment. If only I could get this annoying embed problem sorted...
Bye bye Google Music. I'm finding the Music app in Nexcloud works well and I have it linked up to the CloudBeats app on my phone.
Contacts, Calendars, Notes, etc
All on Nextcloud and synced up nicely to my Android and my Ubuntu PC. Easy.
Well... if you noticed, I never said bye bye #facebook. The reason for that is there's an outdoors community that just doesn't exist here in the #fediverse. I'm not sure if there's an answer for that... I mean, the Dark Peak walking community group I'm a member of has over 1000 members. here, there's me. I'm a lonely voice. What I have done is delete my old account and create a new one devoid of personal information. I share nothing personal about myself and post no personal photos. I simply use it for access to those communities that I'm a member of.
I'm also considering installing a small PeerTube instance so that I can migrate my few public videos away from YouTube.
I'm contemplating installing and having a dabble with Matrix.
I'm wondering if I could make use of Discourse.
I'm also looking at #Bitwarden password manager. More research needed on that one as - for obvious reasons - I'd need to be extremely sure of its security.
PixelFed also interests me. I've started an account on Pixelfex.social and would like to eventually host, but I'll probably wait until it's a bit more stable.
