Recently, I've been busy preparing various directories for additional archiving in Linux (it's about files from the /var/log/ location) containing archives of reports of performed operations in the system and running programs (services such as www etc.). Since I often use archiving to RAR format, I decided to see if it would work in this case as well.

I wrote a script that installs Nextcloud package (an alternative to other disk services in the so-called cloud), in Debian 11 (Linux). To work it requires only a clean system, everything will install and configure itself (so that it works on the local network, the operation outside must be configured by the user).
Here is the link: Nextcloud Debian Installer
Today I had the opportunity to update the firmware of the Mellanox ConnectX-3 card, and I thought I'd give a closer look at the process (it should work for previous ConnectX series card models as well).

I prepared new scripts package, that will install colorful and nice motd (message of the day) with some system informations.
MOTD is generated with scripts, that will be extracted to /etc/profile.d where you may modify them to suite your needs.
fail2ban and docker stats will not be shown if user do not have correct permissions for that.
The script runs on EL based Linux systems ie: RedHat, CentOS, RockyLinux, Fedora etc.

Currently, the most frequently used FTP server by me in Linux is Pure-FTPd. It allows to use TLS encrypted connections. I thought it would be nice if I could link Pure-FTPd to my certificate signed by Let's Encrypt. By default, the application does not have such a possibility, so I wrote a simple script that helps both projects work together.
I would like to invite you to a short description and download.
