@dansup @cjd I’ve been running and maintaining the Omnibus edition with no hassle whatsoever for Ind.ie. You can easily install/update via apt on Debian-based systems. In case it helps, here’s the relevant bits from an automated server install script that I use for one of the servers for Better Blocker:
