Turnkey Containers

Some time ago I asked for help with adding zfs to the basic turnkey container so I could use it as a base --- many thanks to all those who answered my cry for help. However, did not get it to work, so I installed debian as my base system, added zfs, with the intention of building my containers on that.

I wanted at least three separate containers to play with: Joomla, Samba, and Owncloud. Unfortunately the standard turnkey containers did not contain the latest versions of the software, so then what. (Please note I am a beginner with Linux etc.)

The solution occured to me --- load a core container onto my base container and pretend it was a Rasberry Pi; there are lots of instructions out there on how to get Samba/Joomla/Owncloud running on a Rasberry Pi which are easy to follow if you are new to all of the Linux magic like me. It worked/works like a dream, congratulations to the turnkey team for producing such a brilliant base system which you can then play with.

I now have three containers to play with, all with the latest versions of the necessary software (well nearly the latest versions --- I note that owncloud has a new release).

Only one problem to solve, getting all the containers to restart automatically after a reboot (power cuts in the area occur, and by Murphy's law, when I am not at home, but using owncloud).

Also updated container builds are on the way and will be ready soon hopefully...
