Hello Dear Ubuntu Questions Community,
This is my first on this site and is very important to me! I currently run a Minecraft Server that runs on a server that I have to move aways from, and that in the next few days, because of many different reasons! Now I planned to host the server on a Linux based machine in a datacenter! The Problem I currently have is, that I am a newbie regarding Ubuntu servers! Now my greatest concern is security: how much can go wrong, is it likey? And what could happen?
What I would require: An Ubuntu server that ONLY (at first) hosts the Minecraft Server! That is the minimum! Everything else can be done later. Also good would be a MySQL Server for the databaseses... (but expandable)
Later on, a LAMP server would be nice, but that is, as said, no current necessity!
Now, how unsecure could that be? What would I have to do, other then installing Java and starting the server on the server?...
Or does anyone know a step-by-step guide?...
Please give me an answer regarding that topic, I would be really glad!
Thank you very much in advance!
PS: PLEASE Don't give me a standard "don't touch servers as a noob" post... I got enough of those... I need facts, that I can orientate with!!
