Web server and home network
So I'm thinking about setting up a web server for a school project. Also as a personal project, I'd thought it would be fun to see how it works.
What I'm most curious in is security actually. It will be behind a router, but do you think it's necessary to have it behind a dedicated firewall as well? The server might also double as a file server for the home network, is that a bad idea? Could you put the web server on a virtual machine maybe?
Thanks for looking!
