New year, new blog

With a new year comes a new server (now Debian 9!) and a new blog system built on craft 3.

Right of the bat I faced multiple challenges deploying this new blog because of a wonderful bug that causes the locking of project.yaml to not work in production environments. Long story short I had to reinstall this blog four times before it actually working.

The blog is served by Caddy which is awesome! It provides HTTPS with Let's Encrypt and HTTP2 with zero configuration. Here is what my setup looks like: {
} {
    root /var/www/blog/blog/web
    header /assets Cache-Control "public, max-age=31536000"
    header /favicon.ico Cache-Control "public, max-age=31536000"
    header /uploads Cache-Control "public, max-age=31536000"
    header / Strict-Transport-Security "max-age=31536000;"
    fastcgi / php {
        index index.php
    rewrite {
        to {path} {path}/ /index.php?p={path}&{query} /index.php?{query}

Easy right?

And what's even better, everything is hosted on this server. Zero outgoing requests to companies that might like to collect personal information on you.
