settting up a webserver

Unread post by bvooijen » Fri Aug 10, 2018 7:31 pm

Hi all,

I have a (single, no multisite) website running for a while now, with wordpress on my synology. I have a lets encrypt certificate en htacces rewrite rule http -> https. Everyting works fine.

However, I need to rebuild my site and like to use that momentum to improve some things (security, speed). I have a few questions:
  • Should I use virtual hosts, and why (I don't use it now)
  • Should I use reverse proxy, and why (don't use it now)
  • Should I use apache or nginx (I use apache now)
  • Can I use hsts and http/2; tests show that my server doens't support alpn, how can I activate that on synology
  • Should I create a static folder and subdomain
Well, actualy a lot of fundamentals for starting a server / website. I haven't found a good tutorial for wordpress on synology with the answers to this questions. Hope someone can help me or point me in the right directions.

Kind regards,
