Excellent information. Great help!

But it can use a little improvement. I'd like to see four things:

(1) more than just the Cloud Flare example. I used DuckDNS and had to figure things out (see below). Maybe juxtapose the relevant documentation w/ the implementation and give some guidance of how things may vary.

(2) I put everything in a jail and think this is good practice. Some discussion about using jails would be helpful. Even better, if you agree about the value of using a jail, would be revising the instructions to include use of a jail.

(3) Because current versions of FreeNAS (11.2+) use iocage, some discussion of appropriate iocage commands.

(4) Because current versions of FreeNAS do not include bash in a jail by default, examples or instructions using csh instead.

Here's what I did for DuckDNS:

Issuing the Certificate w/ DNS challenge:
Start a shell within the jail
setenv DuckDNS_Token "<token goes here>"
.acme.sh/acme.sh --insecure --issue --dns dns_duckdns -d <subdomain>.duckdns.org

Cron job to automate renewal:
FreeNAS > Tasks > Cron Jobs
Command = iocage exec acme /root/.acme.sh/acme.sh --cron
Run as user = root
Description & Schedule are left whatever you want.
Outstanding attention to detail. Thank you for writing all this up.
Excellent.. best guide I've found..
Oh wow! If only I had found this sooner!

I just spent the past four weekends trying to figure out basically all the same small issues and tricks to achieve virtually the same xD.

It's a very to-the-point guide, that contains guidance on all the currently common problems of Debian in bhyve. For reference I used FreeNAS 11.2-U6 and Debian 10.1.0.
Great document! It defenitely clears the main doubts about RAM.
Much easier to read! But it doesn't seem to format properl with a l2arc cache at the bottom?

Thank you for the kind words. I still want to update the guide to cover other situations but my hardware is still limited. If you can any constructive comments, please PM me and I'll take them into consideration.
