Reconfiguring a LXD Server
Throughout the lifetime of a LXD server, we will undoubtedly come across moments when our current configuration is no longer working for us. Luckily, LXD provides a number of options for updating our LXD configuration with only a few commands. In this hand-on lab, we'll make some adjustments to the provided LXD server to ensure it suits our needs.

Set the HTTPS Address
To set the HTTPS address so our server is available over the network, we can use:
lxc config set core.https_address 10.0.1.100
Set 24-Hour Image Updates
lxc config set images.auto_update_cached true
Then set them to run every 24 hours:
lxc config set images.auto_update_interval 24
Set the Compression Algorithm
Change the compression algorithm for images to bzip2:
lxc config set images.compression_algorithm bzip2
We can check our work with:
lxc config show
