Moved to Netlify!

I apologize for the recent server outages that made the site inaccessible. I have moved this site to Netlify, hopefully it will have better reliability now.

GoatCounter server setup on OpenBSD

GoatCounter is an open source web analytics platform available as a hosted service (free for non-commercial use) or self-hosted app. It aims to offer easy to use and meaningful privacy-friendly web analytics as an alternative to Google Analytics or Matomo.

I am going to walk you through running GoatCounter on OpenBSD. This approach utilizes the built in Let’s Encrypt and SQLite support, so extra setup pertaining to certs or a larger relational database system like Postgres is not necessary.

This guide was made on OpenBSD 6.8. No steps should change between OpenBSD versions.
