My name is Joseph Stacklin, and I run my own company, blog, and YouTube channel. Recently I stumbled across Webmin and thought it looked childish, however I am willing to try it. That being said, let us talk about my use scenario and I hope that someone can assist me somehow. Also: the following is a HYPOTHETICAL situation and isn’t locked into place, however I would love any ideas that the community may have.
Scenario: I am currently buying webhosting service from a company known as 1&1, however I would love to save money, so I am deciding on getting a server, then installing Vmware vCloud (Free) on it to partition it into two servers: A home data server (NAS)/YouTube upload machine and the server for my websites. For both the sites that I will be importing, I am using WordPress (latest reversion) with their gloriously confusing MySQL databases and custom HTML coding (I hate them but they work right, so I don’t question it). On one of the sites, there will be a secure database (SSL) connection through the new SSL CA: Let’s Encrypt.
Problem: I currently have multiple DB’s thanks to 1&1’s click and build system. So how can I have the sites separate, however make them work on the same server? Or will I need to create another virtual server in Vmware? Also: Will the free 'min tools help? And how can I use them to my advantage to get the most out of the transition? Or am I completely and utterly screwed and just need to hand out my fat cash every year and hope I can write it off next year for taxes?
