UBOS

Last Update: 2018-03-24 02:03 UTC


UBOS is a Linux distribution designed to greatly reduce the amount of time required to set up and maintain common network services. UBOS features a command line utility, ubos-admin, which makes it possible to set up services such as Wordpress, Nextcloud and wiki software with a single command. Backing up all services and restoring them can also be accomplished by issuing a short command in the shell. UBOS is a rolling release distribution based on Arch Linux.

UBOS features a power tool for setting up new website services. The distro requires a fair amount of command line experience to set up, but largely runs itself once installed.

The big issue with this product is new services cannot be added to UBOS once the first set of network services have been created. eg. If we have Wordpress installed we cannot install a chat client later. Everythign must be set up all in one big batch, making UBOS very inflexible compared to other server distros.
