Voices From Belarus Stand With Ukraine

This is a basic setup of services for faster startup development. You can run it via docker-compose or docker swarm.

Warning: This setup doesn't provide high level of security or any high availability. You have to hire some skilled devops engineer (like me)) for close this gap after getting first round or sales.

Also you can check Awesome Selfhosted, Awesome Sysadmin and Free for Dev for more options ;)

And Coolify or Dokku - an open-source & self-hostable Heroku / Netlify alternative

Miss something? Could you tell me more about how can I help you, please?

Setup

All operations should be executed from root on target machine. You can use your laptop or some server. For running all services you need at least 2 cpu cores, 8gb memory and 20gb of free disk space. You can find cheap servers on hetzner.com or compare small hosters on vps.today.

You also need a valid domain name pointed to this server for automatically setting up https with traefik and letsencrypt. However, you can hack your hosts file for working without https.

For bying domain and configuring DNS I recommend you Cloudflare. You should create at least two DNS record type A:

  1. your domain name pointed to your server IP
  2. *.your domain name pointed to your server IP

If you run services with docker-compose, all service will be located on your single server. With docker stack (swarm) mode, you can add addition servers in the same local network (the same network important for nfs volumes mounting unfortunately).

1) Install docker if it doesn't installed

(run scripts from the internet is a bad practice, but if you don't know how to install docker with package managers - it's acceptable)

curl -fsSL https://get.docker.com -o get-docker.sh
DRY_RUN=1 sh ./get-docker.sh
sh ./get-docker.sh

Install docker-compose

curl -L "https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/1.29.2/docker-compose-$(uname -s)-$(uname -m)" -o /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose

2) Setup docker swarm if you choose using it.

docker swarm init --advertise-addr $(hostname -I | awk '{print $1}')

3) Get this repo

git clone https://github.com/tldr-devops/startpack.git --depth=1
cd startpack

4) Fill necessary variables like domain name of your server, your email, passwords for basic auth and sql services.

Generate random passwords

echo -e "export NEXTCLOUD_SQL_PASSWORD=$(echo $RANDOM `date`|md5sum|base64|head -c 25)\n$(cat env.sh)" > env.sh
echo -e "export TULEAP_SQL_PASSWORD=$(echo $RANDOM `date`|md5sum|base64|head -c 25)\n$(cat env.sh)" > env.sh
echo -e "export STRAPI_SQL_PASSWORD=$(echo $RANDOM `date`|md5sum|base64|head -c 25)\n$(cat env.sh)" > env.sh
echo -e "export GITLAB_SQL_PASSWORD=$(echo $RANDOM `date`|md5sum|base64|head -c 25)\n$(cat env.sh)" > env.sh
echo -e "export OPENPROJECT_SQL_PASSWORD=$(echo $RANDOM `date`|md5sum|base64|head -c 25)\n$(cat env.sh)" > env.sh
echo -e "export NOCODB_SQL_PASSWORD=$(echo $RANDOM `date`|md5sum|base64|head -c 25)\n$(cat env.sh)" > env.sh
echo -e "export REGISTRY_PASSWORD=$(echo $RANDOM `date`|md5sum|base64|head -c 25)\n$(cat env.sh)" > env.sh
echo -e "export SQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=$(echo $RANDOM `date`|md5sum|base64|head -c 25)\n$(cat env.sh)" > env.sh
echo -e "export PASSWORD=$(echo $RANDOM `date`|md5sum|base64|head -c 25)\n$(cat env.sh)" > env.sh

You should change this lines with your email and dns name

echo -e "export EMAIL='Type your email here'\n$(cat env.sh)" > env.sh
echo -e "export DOMAIN='Type your domain here'\n$(cat env.sh)" > env.sh

This is your credentials, store it in your password manager ;)

cat env.sh

5) Prepare environment

source env.sh
bash setup.sh

If you have docker swarm setup with more than one machine, you should start NFS server on main manager and connect other nodes to it:

A) On main machine

# Setup NFS server with compose as docker-swarm still doesn't support `privileged` mode
docker-compose -f nfs.yml up -d

B) On all other machines

export MASTER_IP="your $MASTER_IP from step 4"
export DATAPATH="your $DATAPATH from step 4"
echo -e "$MASTER_IP:$DATAPATH $DATAPATH nfs nfsvers=4,rw 0 0" >> /etc/fstab
mount $DATAPATH

6) Run your new services

After entering all commands below you'll able to login into your new services by addresses:

  • https://traefik.your_domain user your $USERNAME password your $PASSWORD
  • https://portainer.your_domain
  • https://registry.your_domain user your $REGISTRY_USERNAME password your $REGISTRY_PASSWORD
  • https://influxdb.your_domain user your $USERNAME password your $PASSWORD
  • https://grafana.your_domain user your $USERNAME password your $PASSWORD
  • https://victoriametrics.your_domain user your $USERNAME password your $PASSWORD
  • https://adminer.your_domain user your $USERNAME password your $PASSWORD
  • https://minio-console.your_domain user your $USERNAME password your $PASSWORD
  • https://gitlab.your_domain user root password your $PASSWORD
  • https://nextcloud.your_domain user your $USERNAME password your $PASSWORD
  • https://tuleap.your_domain user admin password your $PASSWORD
  • https://openproject.your_domain user admin password admin
  • https://rocketchat.your_domain
  • https://vaultwarden.your_domain/admin password your $PASSWORD
  • https://nocodb.your_domain
  • https://strapi.your_domain
Docker Compose

Mandatory steps

docker-compose -f setup-compose.yml up -d
docker-compose -f databases.yml up -d

from now on you can choose which services you need

docker-compose -f monitoring.yml up -d
docker-compose -f registry.yml up -d
docker-compose -f minio.yml up -d
docker-compose -f vaultwarden.yml up -d
docker-compose -f tuleap.yml up -d
docker-compose -f nextcloud.yml up -d
docker-compose -f gitlab.yml up -d

After enabling portainer you should immediately go to portainer.your_domain and set admin password

docker-compose -f portainer.yml up -d

After enabling rocketchat you should immediately go to rocketchat.your_domain/admin and set admin password

docker-compose -f rocketchat.yml up -d

DRY_RUN=1 sh ./get-docker.sh
sh ./get-docker.sh

# Install docker-compose

chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose

# Get files
git checkout https://github.com/tldr-devops/startpack.git --depth=1
cd startpack

# Prepare environment
mkdir -p {builds,cache}
export DOMAIN="Your domain"
export HASHED_PASSWORD="HASHED_PASSWORD from step 4"
envsubst < configs/gitlab-runner.toml > ./config.toml

# Run runner in docker with docker-compose
docker-compose -f gitlab-runner.yml up -d

# Check runners logs
docker-compose -f gitlab-runner.yml logs -f

8) Login into your docker registry on all docker hosts

docker login -u "Your REGISTRY_USERNAME from step 4" -p "Your REGISTRY_PASSWORD from step 4" registry."YOUR DOMAIN"

9) You should configure backups of your server, at least $DATAPATH directory
