Bye nginx, hello Caddyserver!

I did some shuffling again. I’ve moved all my websites over to FreeBSD and the venerable Caddy webserver. I also ditched SaltStack and went full Ansible for maintaining everything.

So, this releases me from quite a few nasty dependancies. The SSL implementation of Caddy is based on the internal Go one, which doesn’t need the dingy OpenSSL at all. The configuration is a lot simpler and less complex than nginx’s. If only WordPress would work on PostgreSQL, then I would be shot of MySQL as well. Yeah, I could use MariaDB, but it’s actually the same bloody thing,

Performance so far has been great. It’s running really stable and I’m happy with it. I still have to figure out some high-availability issues (I’m looking into galera for replication).

I’ll promise to write some more on this blog. I’ve been really busy.
