My wife and I run small businesses from our home, and have part time workers coming in every so often and have them working on several computers, including computers they may bring in on their own. I recently set up an old mac running Catalina as a server to share files… and it occurs to me, can I run a website off the server?
I do need to set up a small website for a local community group, so won’t be too demanding. Would I be crazy for doing this?
I do have very high speed internet, typically 400-500 mbps range download and 18 to 20 upload. The computer, an older MacBook pro, is running Catalina with a 1 terabyte SSD.
If not a totally dumb idea, How would I go about this? Could I set it up to serve email as well? (We have a domain for my wife’s business, but all we do with that domain is email at this point.)
Let me know what you think.
