    Similiarly, nginxproxymanager which is a very nice interface for creating proxies and setting up certs/auth. It's actually the only thing I a docker container for these days, besides Portainer for management.
  • Strange problems with dyndns on Raspberry pi
    Glad i was able to help you :). Also piece of advice, don't expose NC directly to the internet via 80 and 443. Expose NC via an proxy, like Nginx Proxy Manager which is available in a Docker container as well (assuming NC is in a container too) which allows you to configure SSL and auto-renew said certificate. I use NPM as well, absolutely love it.
  • Update Portainer to activate the new dark mode!
    You need a reverse proxy of some sort. If i didn't have everything setup in Nginx classic, I'd use either Nginx Proxy Manager or SWAG.

    The initial content is fairly well tread ground (install a baremetal server and get docker+portainer installed, woo.) However further guides (I'll release 3 a week, there are 11-12 planned) will cover juicier topics like nginx proxy manager, single sign on, oauth proxying, and setting up a next generation wiki.
