I have really “old” AMI Linux instances, and I need to go with more recent MySQL versions.
As some of you noted, I moved my blog into Hugo . You have to pull multiple git repositories to compile the entire project during the build process. Because begging is always challenging, it’s always trial and error, and I ended up having many sub-repositories missing. I’m now going to show the whole journey how to solve “the issue”.
I’ve been avoiding Docker for a very long time. I started as a sysadmin setting up servers running FreeBSD and early versions of Debian on bare-bone servers. As soon as “cloud” came into the market, I switched to AWS and GCE and have used them since then. EC2 was my always goto choice to deploy something on the internet quickly. But Docker — for some reason, I was avoiding it until this two years ago, when I started using it. Without too much trust.
But today, history is not about my love & hate relationship with Docker, but about deploying the GO application and VIPS library. A couple of problems appeared during the process, and it’s worth mentioning them for future generations because I could find much help around my issues.
