Trying Vultr with links to set up Ubuntu Linux server but dump Facebook Instagram

have decided to go with Vultr Cloud Compute virtual machine server as at vultr.com. It is only $20 per month! Digital Ocean has customer service problems with their virtual machines are slow and can be corrupted easily. Let’s talk if we should dump Facebook Instagram Whatsapp etc

It is quite affordable but here are some instructions to set up your virtual machine. I also chose Ubuntu 20.1 for the Linux distribution.

See my details here

Is it time to finally dump Facebook instagram Whatsapp

Facebook AI is out of control. Have you seen the latest terms of service? It seems time to finally dump Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp

I have more reason not to use this subpar social platform

See the stupid restriction here

What do you think of these Facebook properties like Instagram or Whatsapp?

Thanks Bryan

P.S. As you know, this is yet another reason to close this Whatsapp group I have. So everything gets moved to my private chat server. Join here  for life with no more tracking or censorship:

Proven Trading Safe havens are starting to show themselves

It seems only Britain has shot of leading out. Our other currencies are proving to show where to hide out trading wise. US markets do look week but there might be a short term pop with the next stimulus.

Learning the old man’s only nine swords

Why? Age? <– this person should read the articles

Gosh, I’m 51 and working harder in my J.O.B, less money, less time for myself, no clear direction in my life. Need to retire from that and into other initiatives. I’m so unfocused, i’m not even depressed

We can fix the person from the last comment, just choose and act from the following

Digital Ocean RDP VM vs cloud vs Docker containter

There are basically 3 server deployment options as explained below. The Linux set option is horrendous. Cloud is better but still complicated. Screw it, I will be lazy to just set up a remote desktop environment via an Ubuntu Linux server on Digital Ocean.

Setting up Flask app on Heroku cloud. My traditional don’t have the necessary software (e.g. Gunicorn) nor will support it. It is time to move this.

https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/python-gunicorn

Using packages and Pip (Cheeseshop?)

https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/python-pip

HIgh level options to deploy  https://blog.miguelgrinberg.com/post/how-to-deploy-a-react–flask-project

As you can see in this mega tutorial chapter 17-19, highlight the different deployment options of Linux, Heroku, and Docker. I think Heroku is most logical and easiest with minimal amount of work. Linux is tough like in my case espescailly if your hosting company offers limited support. It seems Docker container hosting can be very expensive but easy to deploy from server to server.

https://blog.miguelgrinberg.com/post/the-flask-mega-tutorial-part-xvii-deployment-on-linux

I like the Docker options since the app is in a self contained container which can be transported from server to server quite easily. Here are some hosting options:

I just discovered this: Create a remote desktop virtual machine as with Ubuntu Desktop Linux. This is possible with Digital Ocean as with here:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/how-can-i-create-a-vm-with-ubuntu-desktop-in-digital-ocean

Digital Ocean take Paypal as I like as well.

Heroku got quite a few set up of upvotes when mentioned which is encouraging. I do like the idea of turning a ‘cheap’ virtual machine into a Docker container to have it hosted somewhere.  I wonder if

Heroku also take Paypal out of convenience.

Heroku vs AWS (just go to the verdict at the bottom)

Bonus:

You always hear about this serverless. Here is a good article with Amazon’s AWS

https://blog.miguelgrinberg.com/post/serverless-deployments-of-python-apis

This guys articles are definitely top notch when it comes to Flask technology.

(as I hinted before, you would want to stay away from this proprietary tech so you are no held hostage to AWS. Can your say Parler anyone?) It is an interesting read though.

From a career perspective, knowing these Python technologies can help your career since it is the most popular for web development.

The struggle is real with any Flask production server

Lots of late nights with the code to deployed on any Flask production server

I looked at pretty well at every Flask server for my server on my hosting company which uses CentOS 7. The only one I got working was this server was uWSGI. This was using this

The struggle is real.

Thanks

This was in conjunction with this

It seems to be a complete mess. I just need to ensure I have enough threads to cover all my suer of this Analytics for each user.

There might be a way to avoid presetting a number of threads when launching. This is explained with the –lazy flag here:

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/51931262/threading-in-flask-not-working-with-uwsgi-but-working-on-commandline

It seems uWSGI is as fast Gunicorn according to this:

https://blog.miguelgrinberg.com/post/ignore-all-web-performance-benchmarks-including-this-one

It seems you can easily configure the number of processes needed quite easily.
