Essential Criteria for Each Guide
Accuracy: Instructions should be straightforward, technically correct and thoroughly tested. Include brief explanations of each step to explain the purpose of each action.
Completeness: A guide should leave readers with a finished, working configuration and give them an idea of where to go from there. Considerations for security and best practices must also be made, including firewall rules.
Originality: Content should be original material written for Linode. We will not accept submissions which are duplicated from other sources.
