What do you do with your first five minutes on a new server?
What are the things you do every time you log into a new Droplet for the first time? I’m always curious about how other people approach this. If you were to write your own Initial Server Setup guide, what would it include?
- What do you do you lock down and secure your server?
- What are the tools and utilities that you can’t live without that aren’t included in the default install?
Have you automated it? Share your user-data script, Ansible playbook, or your own aproach.
