Throughout my professional career and personal life, I have made several attempts at “resolutions” to blog more. I’ve gone through several iterations of software, including some home-grown solutions, then wordpress, then blogger/blogspot. I’m back to WordPress hosted on a small server here at home.
The goal of this whole endeavor is to document some of the things that I do so that I can remember them, but also so that anyone who may stumble upon this site can use some of these posts as a reference. So, for this post, a quick note on the setup.
I have a small home server with Docker installed. Using Docker Compose (specifically, this quickstart), I setup docker containers for WordPress and a MySql server. All in all, it only took about 30 minutes to get this up and running.
So, in the immortal words of Randy Quaid:
Hello boys, I’m back!
