Re-Architecting This Website VI

I can’t believe it’s been over two weeks since I touched this project. So far, things have been good. I took a look at AWS with the intent of redoing this project on Lightsail. I assumed it would be cheaper. Unfortunately, it won’t be. That doesn’t mean it’s not worth the effort, but it certainly changes the time table to migrate because it will actually cost MORE per month than hosting on DigitalOcean. Instead of focusing on migrating, I’ve decided to focus on general work that needs to be done which translates to any other cloud vendor.

Here’s what’s new:

  • Extended centos-base role to install and configure fail2ban for SSH and Apache. It also now includes two packages (htop and screen) that were previously missing.
  • New role called create-swap that will create and configure a swapfile.
  • Reconfigured install-apache to include mod_security and a more robust 80 -> 443 redirect.

You can see what’s new here:

Have a good weekend.
