I just upgraded the version of Searx from 0.12 to 0.13.1. The upgrade was quite easy, it needed me around 30 minutes to upgrade it and to verify if everything was ok. If you followed the standard installation, you just have to follow these steps bellow to upgrade it:
Hello everyone, Some months since I hadn't published anything, I know that is a very long time ago. :( I had a lot of things to do. Of course, I work and learn new things. For myself and in order to continue to be autonomous about services I used, I hosted two new services for myself. Lufi and Searx. If I hosted them for myself, I had to share access them to others, It just normal I think, give and receive. You can access to the instances
- Internet Explorer 11
- Microsoft Edge
- iOS devices (ipad, iphone)
- Android devices (Galaxy tab, Galaxy S8)
configurationI deliberately choose to allow storage to one week. My Lufi instance must no be dedicated to store files for a long period but to exchange them quickly and securely.
SearxSearx is a free metasearch engine with the aim of protecting the privacy of its users. If you want to choose searx as default search engine to Firefox, you have to install add-to-search addon. At the end of the installation, you can get a page which tell you page not found. You can find a solution here, you just have to add a rewrite rule to apache2.
configurationSearx can also be used as web proxy in order to replace your IP by the server's IP. I disable this feature to avoid any problem because If my IP server was associated to a questionable navigation.
Other maintenance stuff and improvementsI upgrade the Privatebin instance from 1.0.1 to 1.1.1. This update fix an security issue. Even if the version available is not vulnerable, I take no risk and upgrade it. Moreover, application version currently deployed are now display in the services page. I know it is not recommend because it helps attacker to know the version but there are a lot of other way to discover it. I hope users will check before using services in order to see if they are updated or not and choose to use them knowing that. You can also found the date of availability.
DisclaimerThe same last words. Could you please didn't forget to not do anything wrong or use them in an abusing way; I hope you will enjoy these news services as I do. Have a good day, Mirabellette
