Rename / Move discussion

I agree with merging this page with Home server. This page is for a public server accessible from the internet, Home server is for a private server accessible from within the owner's LAN. I think the articles can be seamlessly integrated as the information they provide is mostly the same. --Eva-02 (talk) 21:17, 13 February 2014 (EST)

I have a NAS4Free server, and I have my own VPS. They bear almost zero resemblance to each other in terms of how they are set up. In fact, I think the only thing they have in common is a http server (NAS4Free is mostly configured through a web interface). You could consolidate it into one ginormous page, I guess, but to what end? Toynbeeidea (talk) 21:52, 13 February 2014 (EST)

I propose splitting this article. The stub at the bottom labeled "Setting Up Email and web server, the EASY way" should be merged with Home server and the rest of the article should be pushed into its own article on "server security". The vast majority of this article is simply hardening for dumbos. --Durandal (talk) 09:42, 16 February 2014 (EST)

Eh... I guess you could, technically, set up email on a home server, except that most (amerikkkan) ISPs would block the ever-loving shit out of it no matter how you set it up. But again, that's an internet-facing service. I guess my point is, I think of a "home server" as a "file server." You're gonna use that to stream your movie files to your xbawks and shit, not to serve up web pages to the general public. My guess is that people are probably way more interested in that.

I think this article should just be renamed "Securing a server" and then a link directing to this page should be added to the warning message on Home server. The Home Server page has plenty of info on setting up a server. --Moistcake (talk)

Ars Technica has started a series on setting up an email server. They recommend iRedMail. I haven't had time to do a lot of writing lately, so I haven't been working on any of the content on this page, sorry. Toynbeeidea (talk) 16:37, 17 February 2014 (EST)

This has also been my long delayed thing on my server. I'll take a read and attempt it soon to see if it's viable. I would probably personally also try Postfix + Dovecot again though. I'm not going to setup PHP stuff like roundcubemail though. I'll tell how it goes. Thanks for the link. WubTheCaptain (talk) 19:46, 17 February 2014 (EST)
