  1. A Raspberry Pi can easily host a static website. The company behind Raspberry Pi actually used Raspberry Pi 4's to host their website when they launched Pi 4 to demonstrate it's capabilities [0]. You can easily run a database and a server (PHP, Go, Node.js or whatever else) and run those also on the Raspberry Pi, but it all depends on how much traffic/server load you are going to have. You can start on the Pi and upgrade to a bigger server later on (your own server, a VPS or some other service from likes of AWS, GCP, Azure, DigitalOcean etc). It all depends on how much you are willing to spend
  2. It might work for some specific variant of ransomware, but there are no guarantees. There are some viruses/ransomware, that only encrypt files with specific file extensions, but others just encrypt everything in their way. So no, don't count on that to save your data. Do a proper off-site backup and don't connect them together.
  3. Did you try restarting your PC? That usually triggers hardware detection again.
  4. It could also be PSU current protection. Some 3000 series cards (3080 and 3090) are said to pull such large amounts of current, that PSU current protection kicks in. Either way, my guess is on the PSU as well. Choose something from this list, preferably Tier A.
  5. Honestly, you're already good. Just set it up and try it out. Don't try to create or solve problems you don't have. QoS might not be necessary at all, but can create issues when configured wrong.
  6. PRTG is widely used and recommended in enterprise environments. If you have the money, sure, go ahead. From the OSS side, I can recommend a combination of Prometheus, AlertManager and Grafana. I use them to monitor 4 sites (homelab, cloud + 2 others), that are all interconnected with Wireguard. I use snmp-exporter for collecting data from network hardware, node-exporter for host/VM specific stats and cadvisor for container workloads. Nagios felt a bit old-fashioned to me, I never got really accustomed to it. But there are people who are familiar with it and like it. Plu
  7. i686 is simply 32bit version of Intel x86. What operating system are we even talking about?
  8. I am pretty sure the issue is your hard drive. That's why your system has gotten slow and might be timeouting. Replace it with an SSD.
  9. Port forwarding is necessary to allow access to services, which are behind NAT (multiple devices in private network behind one public IP). Port forwarding is configured on a router and generally requires you to input the destination port on your public IP, target IP and port in your private network and the protocol (usually TCP or UDP). Port forwarding must be done to the private IP, otherwise your packets could end in a loop because the router is forwarding packets to itself (as it has the public IP on an interface). But the issue you are facing is related to hairpin o
  10. You need to convert your C drive to GPT, then you might be able to disable CSM. This can be done without data loss, but it never hurts to have a backup in case you click wrong or something.
  11. Check your CPU and GPU usage as well as temperatures using a reliable tool, such as MSI Afterburner or HWiNFO64. Task Manager is not a reliable tool for this.
  12. If you want to go for the extreme debloat version, check out Windows 10 Ameliorated. Though some applications might not work on it at all.
  13. I wouldn't recommend exposing SMB to public. There have been numerous vulnerabilities in the protocol (just 3 from last year!) and it's only a matter of time when another one pops up, that can be used for spreading ransomware or other malware. Even if they can read files, that could contain personal information, images and other, that should not be publicly available. I recommend using a VPN instead, such as OpenVPN or Wireguard. Connect from outside using the VPN and then you can access your whole internal network as if you were connected directly to it (with the exception of wors
