New install syntax “wget -O ss slick.fyi/ss && bash ss”
- This topic is empty.
Just FYI to the community we tweaked the installation one-liner slightly to improve best practices a bit…
wget -O ss slick.fyi && bash ss
wget -O ss slick.fyi/ss && bash ssGaryGuest
This is because we are now using the
slick.fyidomain for a few other things, such as in the root crontab as part of the self-healing function. Instead of hardcoding the raw files from GitHub, we now use this shortcut domain which means we could rapidly point SS servers to a “backup” server in case of GitHub problems like happened last week.
It now “heals” from e.g.
https://slick.fyi/crons/*is 302 redirected using Cloudflare Page Rules to GitHub raw files, but in case of emergency we could point to GitLab or etc.
This means we need a more unique URL for virgin installs which is why that is now
slick.fyi/ssinstead of just
slick.fyiwill also point to raw
ss-installfile, just like
slick.fyi/sshowever that will likely change in the future.MasonGuest
Here is what it points to:
slick.fyi/ssis now considered more canonical for retrieving the latest
ss-installfile during virgin SlickStack installations 🙂
If any problems with functionality or DNS/security questions let us know.AliceGuest
why do you guys use .fyi just curious?BruceGuest

No reason, it was just available and cheap at the time… not anymore lol, I don’t recommend registering that TLD anymore.
