Servers and software and things

Bigdinosaur.org runs Linux. All the pages you’re reading are hosted on a dedicated server in Liquid Web’s Michigan data center. The box is a quad-core Xeon E3-1230 with 16GB of RAM and two mirrored SSDs, running Ubuntu 20.04 LTS server on its own gigabit Ethernet uplink port. The web stack is HAProxy for SSL/TLS termination, Varnish for the cache layer, and Nginx for most of the sites.

This blog runs Wordpress. The server also hosts a Discourse-based discussion forum, the Chronicles of George, and my Elite: Dangerous web comic, Fangs.
