Just wrote this - any comments?

I just started testing Caddy 2.0 and decided to write a quick blog post about it. I would appreciate any comments before I start sharing it more widely.


Hey, welcome Dave!

Looks pretty good to me! I don’t have any particular corrections to make. :+1:

A couple notes/thoughts:

  • Basic file servers don’t even need a config file (you even get auto-HTTPS)! See caddy file-server
  • Similarly, basic reverse proxies have a single command too! caddy reverse-proxy
  • I like how you demo the admin API on :2019.
  • Do you have any criticisms? Feel free to mention them, too, so people can evaluate. :slight_smile:

Also, I would strongly encourage links to official documentation related to setting up the service in production. Your instructions are correct today, but in the future we may have changed them, so link to the latest instructions and maybe make a comment that the setup/install instructions may be different (easier!) in the future.

Anyway, let me know when you’re ready to share it, I will be happy to retweet. Welcome to the community!


Howdy @DaveAppleton, looks good!

I’m a bit of a stickler for making sure not to use other people’s domain names for the purposes of documentation or examples. In this case, mydomain.com is owned by someone - a domain registrar.

example.com is reserved expressly for this purpose, though, and would work perfectly in its place!

Thanks for writing this up and sharing it! :smiley:
