Ultimate Home Server Megaproject
In this project, I explore an all-in-one home server using low cost hardware, bringing together as many common home applications as possible in a single box.
Terramaster NAS as low-cost Proxmox node? Teardown and SW Install!⌗
In the first video, I introduce the hardware for this project - a cheap Terramaster NAS! It combines two HDD bays and two NVMe slots in a very tiny and low power brick, with dual 2.5G ethernet too! I get it running with Proxmox, so future projects have a platform to build on.
Take Control of your Smarthome with Home Assistant! Installation Tutorial on Proxmox⌗
In this video, I go over the process for creating a new virtual machien in Proxmox for Home Assistant, what settings you should choose, and why. I also include the steps to pass through USB hardware such as Zigbee and Z-Wave dongles to your virtual machine. Enjoy!
Making Proxmox into a pretty good NAS⌗
Continuing the series where apalrd teaches proxmox skills through meaningful applications, today we are setting up a proper fileserver on our Proxmox system using Linux Containers. I’ve chosen to use a lightweight Linux Container (LXC) for this, so we can share the host’s ZFS filesystem. To manage shares and users using a web UI, I’m installing Cockpit, as well as some additional modules from 45Drives to deal with Samba. Hope you enjoy it!
Manage your Media Collection with Jellyfin! Install on Proxmox with Hardware Transcode⌗
In the last video I introduced Linux Containers, today we’re going to supercharge that by seeing if we can get some graphics hardware into our container, and give our large blu-ray collection a new home. We’re going to cover a few more advanced Proxmox container features, such as privilaged containers, hardware pass-through, and Jellyfin setup and transcoding for Intel and AMD GPUs.
