Freebsd on Digital Ocean

I just like FreeBSD.


Well, FreeBSD hosting is often not cheap or not easy to get. Most providers offer gazillion different linux distributions but seldom FreeBSD. I was quite happy when I learned that you could have a very small virtual server from Digital Ocean – a so called droplet – that is able to run FreeBSD \o/

The pages here are a mnemonic for myself, to remember what I did and how I did it. Maybe it helps others as well.

Update: after revisiting some stuff, I just know I missed some things. Luckily it's not a complete tutorial.
