comment Why is it so important to backup your transaction log?
@OliverSalzburg If you have a transaction log then you need to back it up and truncate it otherwise it will grow excessively. If you switch to simple mode then you won't have the transaction log to go to a point in time and will lose upto an hour's data.

comment What services and modules should a development solution stack be configured with?
Even if people are developing on a Mac they are better off running a VM with a stack that matches their live servers.

comment Redirect user from HTTP to HTTPS in IIS
you havent made it clear what you are trying to gain in using non standard ports. Someone requests http (automatically uses port 80), if they are in the private folder you return a redirect, the browser requests the same url using https (automatically on port 443). Using non standard ports you need 2 forwarded ports, one for http and one for https and the redirect has to include the port specifically. It would be more straightforward to give your VM it's own IP.

comment How bad is it really to install Linux on one big partition?
It is a bit unrealistic to expect whatever you setup now to still be optimal in 2.5 years! And the fact that non savvy users are making a mess is all the more reason to seperate OS from data.
