Distrowatch told me about newest version of DragonFlyBSD (3.8.0) . This version also in my waiting list as I know this BSD variant since beginning. When DragonFlyBSD begin using ports aka dports to their software installation management then I’m happily use this version as server.
For documentation process when I delegate installation process for my staff I create this simple guide.
Of course its VPS based as we try to minimize physical server for our company 🙂
Create temporary iso location
DragonFlyBSD provide .iso.bz2 link and I have to convert it to .iso first. The idea is create temporary location for iso file and use it for Vultr custom iso.
I think my lowendspririt vps is good place to hold temporary image.
