I made a simple script that adds entries to a map file — which HAProxy reads. And voila — a URL shortener! 👇
A lot of my homelab traffic goes through the HAProxy reverse proxy — making it a single point of failure. This can be fixed by having two HAProxy servers and a floating IP.
I’ve been hosting repository mirrors from my homelab rack for a while. I first set up Archlinux in May 2018, then followed OPNsense, Cygwin, MariaDB, Raspbian and lastly Manjaro — now they are in a Terrahost datacenter instead.
