I taught managing Servers myself. It started on some cheap VPS with BuyVM. Something like
2C, 1GB RAM, 50GB Storage, 100 Mbits Uplink.
I surely had to reinstall the Server 15-20 times to get PHP and Apache working.
After that I think I tried to install Java-JDK for a Minecraft Server, which wiped the PHP and Apache Installation, so I had to reinstall again and of course, again, without backups.
I think that I had my first Hypervisor at Kimsufi, I think
4C/8T, 16GB RAM, 2TB Storage, 100 Mbits Uplink, quite the upgrade from the VPS!
A lot of time later I got Proxmox with proper routed networking to share the single IP-Address, setting up my first Linux Container and testing with that was a lot faster and simpler.
Now we have
12C/24T, 128GB RAM, 4TB NVMe, 1 Gbits Uplink from Hetzner! Again, quite the upgrade.
Surely, I forgot something... Ah, right - Application Developer.
