  • Can I use myPI4 (running ADS-B) as a fileserver? And a webserver?

    I've had a Pi4B up and running ADS-B for about 6 months now. All appears OK.
    But I'd like to move an SSD drive over to one of its USB3 ports, and free up my other file-server on an old Pi3B for other uses.
    Any reason why I cannot add an entry to the FSTAB for it, and access the big SSD drive on my Windows network thru SAMBA?

    As well, could I open up port 80 on the Apache2 and use to test some in-house web-pages?
    When I queried Apache2 on the Raspian system basically running only ADS-B, I got the following error:

    :~ $ sudo systemctl status apache2
    [sudo] password for aqk4:
    ● apache2.service - The Apache HTTP Server
    Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/apache2.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
    Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Fri 2021-01-15 19:11:15 GMT; 4h 55min ago
    Process: 467 ExecStart=/usr/sbin/apachectl
    start (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)

    Yet he ADS-B is running OK on port 8754.
    Alternate solution:
    Could I install NGINX instead of using Apache2? I currently have both on my "OLD" Pi3B - Apache2 running port 80 and NginX running another port- (lets pretend its 8080)

    lighttpd already using port 80.
    Change the port in the config for either apache2 or lighttp.
