Hi guys, wanted to ask about your experience with the minimal images.
It is incredible how little information there is about the minimal server images.
So, what is your experience with minimal and lxd?
Which packages do you usually have to add for daily operations? (if any).
On Hetzner, I use dedis, which come with the minimal Ubuntu version by default. I’ve been using them for a long time and I currently have both In production 18.04 and 20.04 on the host with just LXD installed on them.
Because LXD Snap comes with everything it’s needed to run LXC containers and I do not run anything else on the host except LXD, I’ve never missed any packages or noticed anything unusual…
With that excellent experience, I want to start using minimal on the containers too, but I am concerned about what could be missing for my use case (Serving a PHP-based web app with Apache and MariaDB).
Please do share your experience or if you deliberately do not use minimal, please share why.
