Ghost in the.sh is an admin service by admins for admins who host and manage their own services
With cloud services and Software as a service, setup and management of machines is becoming a very different affair. The tooling and incident response typically demands a different approach to the older hand tuned server. Management of this kind is becoming increasingly rarer and more expensive
As a Administrator for a self managed box operating 24/7 it can become increasingly difficult to maintain and respond to machines having issues as time goes on and real life commitments compete for attention.
To that end Ghost in the .sh is intended to be a cooperative of experienced administrators helping each other out to maintain a their own machines and the machines of others and be there to respond when you cannot. With all this experience and manpower in one place it also makes for a great learning environment weather you are looking for advice or mentoring or just come entertainment
Apart from some minimal reporting via automated jobs and a few required utilities Ghost management should be minimally invasive. Care is taking to only grant access to your machine should you allow it and there is need (such as a service failing) to ensure there is as little attack surface as possible and to keep things as secure as possible
The requirements are relatively simple as shown below:
