    Project mention: Has anyone managed to install with the visual selector? | /r/selfhosted | 2023-11-29

    Edit: I got some parts of it running. This video is very helpful. I gave up on the official docker repository for change detection io and switched to the LSIO version. I had to first install and run the docker Selenium container (available here). I installed the standalone version of Chrome from that page. Now I added one line to the docker-compose.yml in the environment section (as mentioned in the video. I did not add BASE_URL) and that was "WEBDRIVER_URL=" (this has to be an actual IP address, can't use "localhost" or anything else. I redeployed the container and the webdriver worked.

    Thanks for showing up and answering questions. Congratulations on the release.

    What kind of plans for support of Rust's evolving async ecosystem?

    Any particular reason why the public roadmap does not show the columns similar to "Researching", "We're Working On It" like the other similar public AWS Roadmaps? See example for Containers:

    Would be nice to have fully working examples on Github, for most common scenarios across most AWS services. This is something that historically

    Project mention: Ditching PaaS: Why I Went Back to Self-Hosting | | 2024-01-18

    These are great operational wins. Agreed very much that having autonomic (can fix itself) systems at your back is a massive game changer. De-crustifies the act of running things.

    The other win is that there's a substantial cultural base to this way to go. Folks have been doing selfhosting for ages, but everyone has their own boutique setup some their way. A couple tools and techniques could be shared, but mostly everyone took blank slate configs & built their own system up, & added their own monitoring & operational scripts. is a set of helm scripts and other tools that is widely widely used, and there's a lot more like it. It's a huge build out, using convention and a common platform to enable portable knowledge & sharing.

    Self hosting did not have intellectual scale out at it's back, before Kubernetes came along. Docker and ansible and others have been around, but theres never been remotely the success there has been today in empowering users to setup & run complex services.

    We really have clawed out of the server-hugging jungle &started building some villages. It's wonderful to see.
