The purpose of this project was to create a self-hosted website using a custom public domain, a web server running Apache2 and MariaDB, and various scripts and templates.
The first step was to purchase a custom public domain for the website. This involved researching and selecting a domain name that was available for purchase, and then completing the necessary registration and setup steps.
Next, the web server was set up and configured to run Apache2 and MariaDB. This process included installing the necessary software, configuring the server settings, and testing the server to ensure it was running correctly.
Once the web server was set up, the website was built using a combination of WordPress templates and custom scripts. This involved customizing the templates to match the desired design and functionality of the website, and integrating the custom scripts to add additional features and functionality.
The website was then tested and fine-tuned to ensure it was running correctly and providing the desired user experience. This included monitoring resource usage, troubleshooting any issues that arose, and making any necessary adjustments.
The project was successfully completed, resulting in a fully functional and self-hosted website.
