Switching to Caddy or so I thought

A small background, I have been using’s Swag container for years now, it has been behaving just great, so good that became boring almost. For years I have heard the rave about Traefik, but I have always thought that it required so much scripting to get working, all those labels and commands. While researching Traefik I came across Caddy, I started reading about it and really liked what I read.

Unifi VLAN and WLAN and making it happen

For a long time I have had a wish to extend the function of my home network. The thought I have had is to separate both my guest network and IoT network, the latter to stop it from calling home. Due to time issues… it has been a thought that has been lingering for a long time. But suddenly it happens! It all started with my storage solution started to warn about a failing disk, that had to be dealt with so I planned a few hours to fix that this past weekend.

My Unifi network

I decided to write donw my network since so many peeps are asking about it. First off internet in comes via fiber, to a fiber “modem”. Here is where the Unifi network begins. An USG 3P gets a tp-cabel from the modem to its WAN port, the two LAN ports on the USG goes to: LAN1 ( and LAN2 ( It is easier to talk about LAN2 first, so much smaller setup.

But as I promote Docker as soon as I can.. kinda I use Docker, but not that much to be honest. But that has changed in a big way during the autumn and the last two days, so from about 13 VMs running there are only 3 left now. So these are the ones running atm:
