I’ve decided to start using a wordpress installation – not to gush any feelings into the world, but instead as a reason to play with a virtual webserver on my server.
Why virtual? Because I don’t like the idea of opening up port 80 of my regular server and leaving it exposed to the rest of the planet. I thought a nice virtualised environment would be good, so at least I can take a regular snapshot, and restore if anything breaks.
The Server is running ubuntu 11.04 server. I could have used any other distro, but I’m comfortable with ubuntu, apt, and all the other usual tools that this makes available to me.
Apache2, mysql, PHP5, we’re essentially a very basic LAMP server.
Really though, It’s just fun to play, isn’t it?
