About this site

Stravaiger is an experiment with a self-hosted Ghost instance.


The site's "favicon" is from Mountain icons created by Freepik - Flaticon. (Flaticon attribution license.)


It's running on:

  • Debian GNU/Linux 12 ("bookworm")
  • AWS/EC2 t2.micro instance
    • 1 burstable vCPU
    • gp2 SSD storage (burstable)
    • 1GB RAM
      • With a 2GB swapfile; Ghost can overflow 1GB RAM when preparing images.
    • The t2.micro instance class is now superseded by the T3 & T4 generation, but this is a paid-up-front reserved instance until September 2024.
  • Ghost using a sqlite3 database backend (although the next major release of Ghost apparently intends to support nothing but "proper" MySQL).
