Since my Discourse server experience worked out so well (so far), I’m considering moving three Wordpress installs that I maintain to a single Google Cloud server instance. I want to try Caddy for the web server, since
https is cooked in, and it looks pretty easy to use. I might just try it. The only sticking point I can see is uploading info to the server, as the

And herald to the gaudy spring, 10
Within thine own bud buriest thy content,
And, tender churl, mak’st waste in :
Pity the world, or else this glutton be,
To eat the world’s due, by the grave and thee.

- A churl is a fool or idiot, but here seems to be used affectionately, like “young innocent.”
