I want to self host but it's too overwhelmingl

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on /r/selfhosted

Our great sponsors
  • WorkOS - The modern API for authentication & user identity.
  • Onboard AI - ChatGPT with full context of any GitHub repo.
  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale
  • Nginx Proxy Manager

    Docker container for managing Nginx proxy hosts with a simple, powerful interface

    What I would do is stick to Docker, get a Linux distro like ubuntu and join the Docker workforce. Use as many UIs as possible: Nginx Proxy Manager, Portainer and use linuxserver.io containers. That's the easiest possible way I can think of starting and this is not for play, its serious stuff and will definitely work as well as you need. No overhead or anything in this sort of setup!

  • Bitwarden

    The core infrastructure backend (API, database, Docker, etc). (by bitwarden)

    Once you get the feel of things (setting up database and things like that try https://bitwarden.com/ password manager.

  • WorkOS

    The modern API for authentication & user identity. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

  • pms-wiki

    The aim is to share knowledge and information about building an open-source media server.

    I can’t recommend this site more: https://perfectmediaserver.com/ Ubuntu running docker compose containers. I went from knowing nothing about linux, to command line docker compose user in a couple of months. Even if you don’t follow their guides, they explain the tech in just enough detail to where you feel comfortable following documentation and other tutorials

  • Joplin

    Joplin - the secure note taking and to-do app with synchronisation capabilities for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android and iOS.

    I personally use Joplin as my notes repository - it's very similar to OneNote and is self hosted by just running a WebDAV server on my Synology NAS. As I learn things, I create new notes and that helps me keep track of which tangent I've mastered and which ones I need to learn more on.
