I realized today that I never answered this question. It's because I was looking for a VPS panel with an OpenVPN Client. Which I'm not sure honestly exists after my research. But it sure does now! Love Cloudron sm.
So basically when you’re installing an app or even adding a new sub domain, you have a drop down to select the TLD. I was imagining an item at the end of the list that said “Click here for more domains available from your connected registrar” and if you did, it would pull from the already connected API and add them to the list of TLDs to choose from. When you submit, there would be a pop up warning mentioning that Cloudron will be changing the DNS settings for the external domain chosen and adding it to its database of internal TLDs.
@girish Hey, did just that, and I'm having trouble resolving names AFTER setting them. Cloudron is able to set dns records on aws just fine, but then the check to see if the records are created never gets done. Checked the logs and it's server timeouts. Tried running an nslookup query, to no avail as well.
Kinda weird, seems like the same problem I had on the hosting provider, with unbound, maybe? When I try to sudo, it also says sudo: unable to resolve host ubuntu: Resource temporarily unavailable, but it gets me to root anyway.
I'm a bit beyond my skills here, though, if anyone would like to chime in, I'd appreciate it.
@jamesgallagher and @atrilahiji Yeah, I've run across maybe two or three apps recently that use PouchDB, which needs a public instance of CouchDB in order to sync their data. I have no idea if we should package CouchDB for cloudron as an app, but it sure seems like it could be useful.
@nebulon Agreed. System is definitely too vague, and there are services you can restart in there, it's not a view only dashboard.
Based on the discussion, I'd like to suggest grouping logs and graphs under the same page with Monitoring as name. In terms of concept, it's quite similar, the presentation of the content is different.
One counter-argument would be it adds a click to get there, but on the plus side, it will lighten the menu list, which is getting longer (and thus harder) to process.
@girish Didn't even think of that. It's a feature in my VPS Admin settings. I'll take a fresh backup the next time I restore - and keep restoring it to that when I botch up box too much during testing, thanks for the tip! ️
Are you hosting a custom domain on mailbox.org or do you have a @mailbox.org address? If it's the latter, mailbox is then not really an email relay. Generally, email relays are able to forward all addresses of a domain i.e firstname.lastname@example.org.
@girish Okay, gotcha, that makes sense. I think it’s a great idea. It’s not like your implementation isn’t “lean to an extent,” it’s just more “general purpose” lean I’m guessing. And yeah actually, I was curious that your cloudron Docker tag doesn’t / didn’t use the same versioning modem as Cloudron apps are required to have (2.0 instead of 2.0.0).
