Setting Up QNAP NAS LXD Linux Container on Container Station

To help others, I even made a couple of videos documenting the process. Now I'm ready to start doing projects on my server - come check out how I did it!

I did some great work today getting my 24x7 LXD Container home server running. I’m tempted to start doing projects on that now like the pulse heartbeat in a way that allows project to lead into project. But I have some stuff for work to do that is also way up there.

Okay here I am on the next day. I actually have my last LXD container successfully deployed on my QNAP NAS, but it’s 18.04. I want these types of instances to be 20.04, and while I do it I can make sure I set it up with the right network drive and such. Take note of the settings!
