I’ve referenced my home server many times, but I never had the time to go into the details of how it was built or how it works. Recently I decided to completely rebuild it, replacing the hardware and basing it on-top of a completely new operating system. I thought it would be a good idea to keep a build log, tracking what I did, my design decisions, and constraints you should consider if you want to follow in my footsteps.
This series will be broken up into multiple parts
- Part 1 - Hardware
- Part 2 - Build Log
- Part 3 - MediaDepot/CoreOS Configuration
- Part 4 - Application Docker Containers
This is Part 3, where I’ll be discussing the software I use to run my ultimate media server, specifically focusing on installing and configuring CoreOS for MediaDepot.
