Temporary SSH access

This is a fun one from a while ago. Let me warn you up front though: it goes against the principle to not login on your servers via SSH and use deployment tools like Ansible, but it has its use cases. So, what’s this all about?

Webservices part III – Docker compose, one-page HTML and WordPress

Giving you a high overview of what we’ll be doing, the plan is to automate the creation of one single VPS, hosting multiple websites or webapps. We’re putting these sites or apps in containers and distribute the incoming requests with a cloud native reversed proxy. Since I’ll be introducing quite a lot of new technologies in this Greater blog series, I’m dividing this into four posts.

IaC with Terraform and AWS

Today we’ll be using Terraform (https://www.terraform.io/) to deploy a web server (Apache) with a custom index.html on AWS. The webpage we’ll create won’t run on the default VPC but a new one we’ll create separately. This new VPC will contain an internet gateway, routes, a public subnet and all the goodies for us to get this properly running. On top of that, we’ll create a security group allowing access on port 80 and create a separate directory holding our variables to make this a little more dynamic and interesting. It’s worth mentioning that everything used in this tutorial is part of AWS’ ‘Free Tier’ so you don’t have to worry about any possible expenses.

Stichting Elisabeth Ruiterkampen. Door Frank Kooistra

Naast mijn leuke en uitdagende baan in de IT zet ik mij belangeloos in als vrijwilliger en bestuurslid voor Stichting Elisabeth Ruiterkampen. Deze stichting organiseert al meer dan 40 jaar iedere zomer ruiterkampen voor kinderen en volwassenen met en zonder beperking. De kampweken vinden plaats op de Prinses Margriet Manege in het mooie Drentse Westerbork. De manege is volledig aangepast op het paardrijden en de dagelijkse verzorging en begeleiding van ruiters met een lichamelijke, verstandelijke en zintuiglijke beperking.
