In this guide, we’re going to set up an Ubuntu 20.04 droplet at Digital Ocean with an Apache Web server set up properly and capable of handling serious levels of traffic.

Installation

After spinning up a new $5/mo VM (Digital Ocean calls them “droplets”), the first thing we’ll do is what anyone should do with any brand-new Linux server. We check for and then install upgrades, and—since one of them was a new Linux kernel version—reboot the server.

thunderbird-search-trash-folders-feature If you get overenthusiastic about cleaning out your inbox and end up deleting some emails you wish you hadn’t, there’s a chance they’ll still be in your email’s trash folder when you realize your mistake.
