Installing Certbot

Automatically enable HTTPS on your website with EFF's Certbot, deploying Let's Encrypt certificates. For more information see https://letsencrypt.org/

Installing Samba

One of the primary reasons you might want to install Samba is to allow shares on your Network. Not only is Samba much faster than the typical Windows share but I have found a way to have it act as a Backup Domain Controller. What I mean by this is when the Primary Domain Controller is down, The Samba Server will authenticate your users. Your users will not get the error message that there are no controllers available, they will just get logged into the Domain. When it comes back up, The users will be able to use the Primary Domain Controller like they normally would.
