    As far as website hosting, just set up a few Docker containers: one for a web-server of your choice, and one for a reverse proxy. I recommend Nginx Proxy Manager. It handles SSL certificates for you in a super simple way (both the initial acquisition process as well as auto renewal) and makes it easy to expand to using multiple web servers in the future, or setting up redirects without filling up your DNS records.
  • Risk of self-hosting smaller projects

    Feel like Christian Lempa is being a bit too lenient with the developer of Nginx Proxy Manager. jc21's handling of reported vulnerability was poor. 10 months to fix and then simply including it in the list of changes for v2.9.20 without publishing a security advisory. Not great. And to make matters worse, the project still doesn't have a security policy.

    Docker runs on the 3B+ so you could use this [Github] or the one I have deployed here [NGINX Proxy Manager site] amongst others.

    Is Reverse Proxy enough to be safe? I was thinking about trying Nginx Proxy Manager. Also... Do I also have to separately setup Nginx before installing the Proxy Manager?

    For a few TB of data you have many options. I use a Beelink Mini S12 with a 4TB SSD and a 2TB NVMe in it. It is powerful enough to run several services and stream photos and video to my phone, desktop, and TV (using an Amazon Fire Stick on the TV). I use Photoprism and Jellyfin for that. I access it remotely using Tailscale. It helps if you own a domain so you can setup SSL certs. I have and points to my server.
  • Internal Server Error when proxy host directs to router

    The SSL certificate for my wildcard domain is currently managed by the script running as a Docker container until the issue with NPM and Azure DNS certificate management is resolved.

    I recently had trouble getting an SSL cert, but I found this PR and it already has an image and it works for me. I use Tailscale and my network isn't visible from the internet so I use the DNS Challenge option with GoDaddy and an API key.
