I’m happy to introduce a new ‘service’ on this blog where I will write guides for configuring applications and services in a very straight forwards methodology.
Usually they will be from guides that are provided, but are either too dense with information or lack a cohesive workflow.
Each resulting guide is intended to read as discrete steps that require little to no searching nor head-scratching.
There is a HUGE downside to these guides however, they are geared towards the system I am configuring/installing the software on (mostly Ubuntu 14.04) and will not account for many potential pitfalls.
In short, do not use these guides for configuring a production environment. Go see your friendly neighborhood sys-admin.
