  1. Thanks for another great video Brian! I also was having issues with InvoiceNinja so when this came up I was stoked. I am running into a different error though than you.. have you seen this one? Upon running the setup.sh file I get an error that says "In Filesystem.php line 268 /var/www/vendor does not exist and could not be created." Now I'm just a beginner with Docker so I'm not sure if this is saying it can't create /var/www/vendor on my VPS because Apache isn't installed (I'm using NGINX PM), or if that is a relative path in the Crater app. If you can shed any light I'd be greatly appreciative!

  2. I am having a issue where my PDF's do not displaying or downloading (Server Error 500). something to do with dompdf missing but I'm having issues installing it. Anyone have some advice?

  3. How about update the script to levrage traefik docker image with http – https redirected and ssl resolver as lets encrypt stage /(production ) optional with $domain as env variables that can be asked and if you want clouldflare resolverer may env to token input , j have a script going but it my use case specific ,may be you can modify for genneral use case
    Another script called entertainment that includes jelly qbit (open vpn optional) sonar and radar

  4. They also have a free and open source app (ad-free) for smartphones, but it has to be connected to your server to function. Definitely going to try to get all of this set up for my business. Thanks for all the great content!

  5. Was having issues getting crater setup a few weeks ago, knowing how informative your videos are I can say that you will most definitely help me get this setup right 😀
