I have a static PI Address which I have Port forwarded thru my Router so I can go to my RP from any other computer on the net. I have two MariaSQL databases running. One is a search engine (SSEP) the other is a phpBB forum..
Also running Apache php goodness
The RP has been running for 144 days with no problems. In other words I have not (to my knowledge) been hacked.
I know Hackers are a real problem. But are they over emphasized. In your opinion do you think are RP home server is a achievable tool in the internet of today.
