This thread is dedicated to any questions you might have about the content on im663.com.
For those interested in making their own imageboard using the LynxChan engine, I made a comprehensive writeup here: https://im663.com/
You should totally mention some basic security things like disabling password login, installing ufw to disable ports that shouldn't be exposed, and installing fail2ban. The world is a scary place, and simply typing in "lastb" on your production server shows it all. Since your guide is targeting people who are new to linux, you should totally add a link to Digital Ocean's tutorials!

>To create a restricted user and setting up ufw (18.04)

>To create a restricted user, setting up ufw, disabling PasswordAuthentication (16.04)

God bless digital ocean for their amazing documentation.

Another thing you should add is in your nginx config, You can add rate limiting, which will prevent people from spamming your api. Lynxchan might have a method to deter this already, but I would add it just to be safe, it's a few lines that might save people from brute forcing your password and takes less than an hour to understand and setup correctly.

The article was written very well. If you write another article about the android app, it would be even better. If you have a video tutorial, it's better!
