Configure outgoing mail on Redash

Installing Redash is straightforward if you use repository. Just run setup script to download, install and configure all required packages. But there is one thing missing from the default. It is mail configuration. First install Redash with all default settings and then edit /opt/redash/env file: After setting those values run docker-compose up -d command to recreate containers. Use TLS and local IP address if you host your mail server on-premise. Now you should be able to send mail messages from your Redash.


Private Docker Registry with pfSense-offloaded TLS connections

Benefit from running your own docker registry is cost and privacy. But in order to use it in various places you need to secure its connection with SSL/TLS certificates. In case you have only ZeroSSL or LE certificates it can be difficult to maintain both you certificate at ACME/HAProxy leve in pfSense and secondary also in docker registry somewhere else. Fortunately there is solution for that. Add your docker registry domain to ACME certificate enrollment as usual. Run docker registry without giving it certificate. Instead configure a domain pointing at pfSense, preferably using non-WAN address. Next configure proxy-pass at Nginx
