I'm thinking of subscribing to your solution. I'd like some clarification about security. I already have vps with contabo. it seems to me that your service is already compatible.
after the creation of the installation of a vps, there is necessarily a root account to create. which in time is not a good practice.
- are any unbuntu security measures taken after cloudron installation?
- change root,
- port blocking,
- modify ssh port,
- setting up a failtoban?
- system or packet updates?
the goal for me is to free myself from system administration.
yes, but reading is long and sometimes a bit technical for me. that's why i'd like to be reassured.
so following this drive, we don't change the root, but you recommend changing the ssh port and not using SSH key authentication?
Do you have a tutorial on this subject? I didn't see it in the documentation. Unless I skipped a few lines.
Thanks for your reactivity
Yes Cloudron does come with an integrated firewall which manages it self.
modify ssh port
This is useless and only deters the most basic script kiddies.
Every port scanner will still find the open ssh port.
system or packet updates
the goal for me is to free myself from system administration
When self hosting you will never be fully "free" of system administration.
But Cloudron does take a lot of your shoulders.
Setting up ssh key based authentication and disabling root is explained one google search away for example:
I recommend following the two steps in the post installation - https://docs.cloudron.io/installation/#firewall-setup . i.e if you have a Cloud firewall open/close ports there and also secure ssh access with ssh keys and disable password login.
@ode59 IT stuff like configuring apps, figuring out how apps work, figuring out which apps you need, maybe setting up interconnections between apps. in any case, instead of talking in abstract, it's best you try to actually use it and see how you like it
