Self-hosting Email & WordPress Servers

Project Description

This project outlines setting up personal email server using citadel instead of paying $60/year for email addresses within your custom domain. This project also details how to transfer a whole wordpress blog from one server to another using Duplicator. Both the email and WordPress server are virtual machines, and this project is also a guide to setting that all up as well.
