UBOS Beta 10 released with automatic Tor hidden services setup
Beta 10 has arrived with new software packages, new features and the obligatory bug fixes. The big news is this:
You can now set up web applications, like Wordpress, as a Tor hidden service with a single command. This joins previously-available functionality to set up HTTPS sites, including certificate provisioning, with a single command. Here are some examples:
sudo ubos-admin createsitecreates a regular HTTP website with the apps you specify.
sudo ubos-admin createsite --tls --self-signedcreates the same website, but with a automatically generated and installed self-signed certificate.
sudo ubos-admin createsite --tls --letsencryptcreates the same website, but with an official certificate from Letsencrypt that’s recognized by all major browsers.
sudo ubos-admin createsite --torcreates the same website, but as a Tor hidden service. In addition to the privacy and anonymity features Tor provides to site users and site publishers, this lets you easily run a website from behind your firewall, or pack up your server, plug it in somewhere else and you are back up and running.
Some other things that are new:

Various bug fixes and improvements.
