  2. [ubuntu] Re: LAMP for Wordpress safe on home computer?

    Thanks Lars Noodén. I do have ufw enabled. I did some reading and the default is to deny incoming connections so then ports 80 and 443 would be covered. That is what I assume.


    I do not need to...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: LAMP for Wordpress safe on home computer?

  4. [ubuntu] LAMP for Wordpress safe on home computer?

    I would like to learn Wordpress for building websites. LAMP installs Apache, Mysql and php servers. Is this safe to use from a home computer? I won't be hosting websites at home, only building them.

    [ubuntu] Re: cat /proc/sys/kernel/dmesg_restrict
