I love self-hosting personal applications. I spun a machine on cloud and started hosting my applications. As I wanted to host my second application, I got struck routing both the application’s request to the same machine without needing to specify a port number in the URL. Specifying a port number in the URL like http://miniflux.ganesshkumar.com:5000 and http://blog.ganesshkumar.com:4000 made the URL look ugly.
Though I use OS X as my primary operating system now a days, I still use Ubuntu GNOME on a virtual box for one or two projects. Why not? I love GNOME. This post contains notes on my virtual box setup, primarily for my reference.
