Details for Slew

These notes should be moved to slew once its web server is running.

VPS Details

  • 4 CPUs
  • 8 GB RAM
  • 400 GB RAID-1 HDD


I created a new key pair in Termius on my phone and added it as my ssh key in control panel. That way I could access it at Paula's house where I was for black friday. (Console wouldn't let me just remove the existing ssh key; I could only replace it)

Initial deployment couldn't resolve during 'apt update'. I had to manually set dns name server to and it started working.


Apt couldn't find fail2ban. I had to manually add universe, restricted, and multiverse repositories, then everything went fine.

sudo apt-add-repository universe
sudo apt-add-repository multiverse
sudo apt-add-repository restricted

Fail2ban not working?

Fail2ban hasn't banned any IPs yet so I can't tell if it's working correctly. Looking at auth.log it doesn't appear that any login failures are occurring.

UPDATE: Fail2ban has banned some servers, so it looks like it's working.

Tasks Remaining

  1. Install latest php
  2. Install httpd and php-fpm
  3. Get slew set up as a backup destination
