In this Mastodon era, I wanted to try another approach to be used as a personal ActivityPub microblogging playground instance. After some research I decided to install an Akkoma into a Raspberry Pi 4. Quite straight forward installation!
For any reason the concept of a reverse Proxy always sounded like black magic in my head. Maybe I just jumped into programming too early and didn't get to set up one. Now the need knocks my door and I must jump into the fun of understanding it and updating my infrastructure, and the key piece is a Raspbery Pi as a Reverse Proxy.
Recently I acquired a Raspberry Pi 4 with 8GB of RAM, bigger from the RPi 4 with 4GB where I have my Nextcloud. The reason is that I intend to install the LibreOffice apps (that I've read that consumes RAM) and I'd like to have also an Akkoma instance running in the same machine. I was wondering if it'd be as simple as swapping the SD Cards, so just tried it 🚀
In my adventure to put some order in my personal photos library, and this new view of self-hosting as much as possible, I ended up installing a Nextcloud instance in my Raspberry Pi 4. It's about a month and a half since I've been playing around with it so I consider it stable enough to stay with me.

New year, new flat, and new home infrastructure. With so many machines connected to the network, I want to try again a home DNS server so that I don't need to remember all the IPs in my LAN. That is my goal, and if it serves as a base for further browsing experience improvement, then welcome.
In this article I intend to setup a DNSMasq minimally for my network.
