Should I use root to start my website?
I’m in the process of learning how to use VPS to host my website. I have created LAMP stack and phpmyadmin and have my code ready. Aside from that, I haven’t created any additional users or set any additional security checkpoints yet.
I just wonder, is it ok to start my website, by using this “root” to upload all the file to the “/var/www/” folder and keep moving on from this? Or should I create another user?
Thank you so much!
