Look, it works!

So, here is my new and shiny webserver! It runs on a NanoPi NEO development board with the nginx webserver. I'm still figuring out how to configure it.

Currently, the biggest problem is that whenever the DHCP lease expires, and the device gets a new one, it cannot set a route for the connection anymore. To debug it, I've written a udev rule to restart the board whenever I insert a USB stick from whatever the vendor and product IDs are.

Well, actually, I've modified my script to just restart the network connection using network manager. Hopefully that will be sufficient.

The next lease renewal is due quarter to midnight. I can't wait!

So, yeah, restarting the network interface with nmcli is sufficient. Now, I should report the bug.
