Setting up an hugo site for blogging, with the intention that I will become better at writing down stuff I do and that I might whant to remember that I done and how since memory is none existant.

To get code syntaxing to work with reStructuredText I had to install python2-pygments in addition to hugo

dnf install python2-pygments

Web server

Did an nginx installation in docker to serve the static pages, rather crudly


FROM nginx:latest

COPY ssl.conf /etc/nginx/conf.d/ssl.conf


server {
    listen       443 ssl;
    server_name  minoris.se;

    ssl_certificate          /etc/nginx/ssl/nginx.crt;
    ssl_certificate_key      /etc/nginx/ssl/nginx.key;

    ssl_session_timeout  5m;

    ssl_ciphers HIGH:!aNULL:!MD5;
    ssl_protocols SSLv3 TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2;
    ssl_prefer_server_ciphers   on;

    location / {
        root   /usr/share/nginx/html;
        index  index.html index.htm;

Let's encrypt

I referenced this page https://fedoramagazine.org/letsencrypt-now-available-fedora/ included here since they descripbe revokation procedures and similar things that I wont go into

With that information I made an docker container for this as well.

This is the letsencrypt command I decided to run, /ssl, /webroot and /etc/letsencrypt are volumes in the docker container /ssl and /webroot are shared with the nginx container Replaced recovery@example.com with my own email address

letsencrypt \
       --text \
       --renew-by-default \
       --email recovery@example.com \
       --domains www.minoris.se,minoris.se \
       --agree-tos \
       --webroot \
       --webroot-path /webroot/ \


FROM fedora

RUN dnf install -y letsencrypt
COPY renew.sh /renew.sh

ENTRYPOINT ./renew.sh



letsencrypt --text --renew-by-default --email recovery@example.com --domains www.minoris.se,minoris.se --agree-tos --webroot --webroot-path /webroot/ certonly && \
cp /etc/letsencrypt/live/www.minoris.se/privkey.pem /ssl/nginx.key && \
cp /etc/letsencrypt/live/www.minoris.se/fullchain.pem /ssl/nginx.crt

Then all I have to do is start this container and restart the nginx container once every month and it should all be good
