Welcome on my server website, this page is hosted on the server.
This server is hosted and managed by Melroy Antoine van den Berg.
I provide the following services on this server:
Besides the services, I also provide RAID-1 (mirroring) on the data disk for redundancy. Suppose a hard disk fails, I can hot-swap the broken disk.
As a back-up the whole data disk is kept in (one-way) sync to another location. The second location contains self-hosted NAS server based on Banana Pi computer with a SATA disk attached to it. More info read the backup website (hosted on the Banana Pi itself). A fully back-up at other site is needed to prevent data loss after lightning, fire, water damage, human error, theft and more...
OpenProject is an online open-source project management software. Which includes features like: task management, Gantt charts, team collaboration, bug tracking, Scrum, roadmap and more.
As git control manager (GUI) we are using GitLab which is open-source and free to use. GitLab includes a git repository manager including code reviews (merge request), wiki's, feature rich user management.
GitLab can be used in combination with GitLab CI for continuous integration (Gitlab Runner), which is fully integrated into Gitlab itself.
Futhermore, GitLab is shipped with a build-in ticketing system as well as a kanban board. Next to Gitlab, they include GitLab Mattermost, which is workplace for messaging/chat & communication platform (Slack alternative). The features are almost endless.
Manage your to-do lists in a kanban tool (Trello-like). I'm using Wekan to host my own open-source task and to-do management.
Instead of using cloud storage by 3rd party companies, we are using our own cloud storage. It's called Nextcloud. Nextcloud is a self-hosted file sync and sharing for online collaboration and storage.
We are using Nextcloud for storage and syncing documents, photos, music and more.
For MySQL databases we use the phpMyAdmin to easily manage database, tables and records. PhpMyAdmin is written in PHP intended to handle administration of MySQL over WWW and it's running on the apache webserver.
We are using multiple monitoring tools to ensure the up-time of our services and the server in general. The first tool is Grafana. Grafana is an open platform data visulization & monitoring tool, which I use in combination with InfluxDB database and Telegraf input data.
Telegraf fetches data from all kind of sources: Linux kernel info, process information, memory usage, disk usage, hard disk tempatures, network load, and so much more! This data is stored in InfluxDB (timeseries), and visualized by Grafana.
The second tool we use is called 'Monit'. Monit yet another free open-source software solution. Monit is a proactive monitor tool for monitoring proceses, system, files and network.
It will inform the server admin during alerts (problems), by sending an e-mail notification.
For instance: if an important process crash, Monit can automatically restart the process, to minimize the server down-time.
Monit include a web interface for monitoring the system status and interact with processes.
