I have moved to using VirtualBox VM’s for my local web development. I use Vagrant and Ansible to set them up. For my site, I use synced folders to share the site files from the local machine to the dev VM. This limits what permissions can be set on the files though, and doesn’t work well for Symfony’s
var folder stuff, eg cache and logs. The normal Symfony permissions for those folders use ACL’s, but those cannot be set on Vagrant synced files. My solution was to create a
/var/www/var folder to store such folders for any sites on the VM, and symlink them into place in the shared folder location. I did this with Ansible so that it would be reproducible. Since I ran into some issues getting it working, I thought I’d blog about it.
I had off work this past week and took a staycation. It went very fast and now it’s back to work tomorrow.Continue reading post "#3924"
Merry (post) Christmas, all. It was a white Christmas this year, cold and a nice couple inches on the ground, with a light snow falling much of the day. The day was nice and much of it was spent with family.Continue reading post "#3920"
Very cold and windy today. Woke up with it around 8 degrees and it just went down from there. -1 was the coldest I saw on a thermometer.
Snow on the ground, not a lot except in drifts. Not enough to shovel but enough for several plow visits.Continue reading post "#3918"
Apparently, an update to VirtualBox after version 6.1.26 limited the IP’s usable for network adapters on Mac / Linux hosts. They must now be in the
126.96.36.199/21 range, which is pretty limited and much less easy to remember or type than the
10.*.*.* that I had been using. I had to change my projects to all be in this range and spread out the IPs to avoid collisions between the various projects when I updated VirtualBox a while back.
An episode of Pawn Stars pushed me to pull out my old Nintendo Power magazines from my parents’ basement.Continue reading post "#3913"
This past weekend, I started playing with GitHub Pages for the first time. It took a while to figure out, but was somewhat fun. I’ve been interested in it for a while, but was unsure of how to do what I wanted, such as building with PHP, Sass, and Rollup. Turns out it was fairly easy with GitHub Actions to do most any sort of build steps I want. It is very interesting for free static site web-hosting.Continue reading post "Playing with GitHub Pages"
After being unsure for a while of what to look for in the Certbot / Letsencrypt log that is pertinent, as in useful to look for under normal circumstances, I finally had a renewal fail and figured it out. The string “(failure)” will appear if a renewal fails, and will be on the same line as the name of the cert.Continue reading post "Letsencrypt log failure string"
