Set up self-hosted server services at the push of a button

Quick Service

Article from Issue 267/2023

Setting up a server manually on Linux can sometimes test your patience, but with YunoHost you can install and configure your servers with just a few mouse clicks.

Linux is considered an excellent server operating system mainly because of its stability. But installing and configuring a server requires in-depth knowledge, even on the free operating system, and is something usually done at the command line. Enter YunoHost [1], which lets you set up a fully configured server on your intranet with just a few mouse clicks.

The new version 11 of YunoHost is available both as a standalone distribution and for use on virtual machines. The system supports both 32- and 64-bit hardware, meaning that you can recycle your older computer systems. On top of this, YunoHost is available for many ARM-based single-board computers, and even older Raspberry Pi or Orange Pi systems are suitable as the basis for a server on your network.

The software supports installation on a remote computer via SSH. However, this requires Debian 11 "Bullseye" as the preinstalled underpinnings on the remote machine. After installing the basic system, you can easily integrate the desired services via a web-based interface. The system is not limited to a couple of well-known services, but supports no fewer than 350 preconfigured programs.
