Low End Box got its start featuring new hosts that needed an opportunity to showcase their services to a broad audience. So for this post, we’re focusing in on a new up-start called vpsRus.

How to Self Host Images and Photos with Ubuntu VPS

Tags: , , Date/Time: December 1, 2016 @ 4:09 am, by Jon Biloh


Hobbyists who look to have maximum control over the image files that they host online may look into purchasing a virtual private server. If you are looking for an alternative to Flickr, a VPS could be the perfect alternative.

Several applications exist that will help you self-host your own images. Some are more basic than others; for example, you may wish to have the ability to mark photos as private or password protect specific areas of the site.

In this article, we’ll detail the command line installation instructions of Lychee, an open source app that is used for hosting images on virtual private servers. These install instructions will help you install Lychee on an Ubuntu 16.04 server. Use commands with sudo when needed.
