Since our Debian VM is up and running, let’s do something cool with it! We’re going to get our own WordPress website running on top of a LEMP (Linux, NGINX, MariaDB, PHP) stack. As a bonus, I might also moan a little about my daily commute!
This is the first post of upcoming series of posts about servers – their deployment, automation, load-balancing and configuration. In this introductory bit, we will focus on deploying our first Debian VM.
My previous post (link) covered creating a CheckPoint R77.30 VM and a simple NAT’d (NATed/NATted? I don’t know!) network. In this example, we’re going to stray away from scenario. We’re going to create a routed (link) network, as well as one isolated (link) network and add two NICs to our VM so it connects to both networks. Additionally, we will need one Linux VM (I’m going to use Debian) to act as a web server.
