Anyone have experience hosting a #friendica #server? I'm looking for a secure, private friends & family photo + posts sharing option. It looks like a pretty simple LAMP install which shouldn't be too hard to set up on shared hosting. Any general advice or suggestions? Will it be easy enough for less technical family members to participate in?
