Do I need Ubuntu?
I’ve just started front end development this year and would like to host a simple portfolio site on digitalocean.
My question is this - What is the difference between Ubuntu and a server like Apache? I thought Ubuntu was an Operation System? Do I need to install Ubuntu for a simple static website? I have a mac so I’m not sure even if I can do this… Also, I know this is a really dumb question but will going through the steps to connect to an Ubuntu server mess up my iOS operating system?
If you were in my shoes and wanted to host a simple static website on digital ocean, how would you go about doing so (Distribution or One-Click Apps)?
Thank you in advance,
