Setting up my first server! Can't wait to learn how to be my own sysadmin :)

@gwenn Ubuntu 18 😅 it's what I am most familiar with (ubuntu generally)

@vickysteeves Remember to allow SSH login only via keyfile and not via password. And set up a firewall to not accidently expose services to the internet (I use ferm [0], which just provides a nicer syntax for iptables). And should you dare into the territory of running your own email server, make sure it can't be used as open relay.

@vickysteeves Cool! Enjoy that. I'd love to do the same, but that's probably a years-away goal for me at the moment.
