As stated,

  • If I have an Ubuntu desktop and have a web server within it, can I make another file server to store the database, files etc? or I just need to stick with the computer I installed the web server?

It's up to you. You can either have webserver, database and file storage server in a same server or in separate servers.

  • Thanks. Do you think I can access another computer web server? Currently I am using hosts file point to to get access to another computer's web server site. Is it an appropriate method? Any other method I can do? – Camel Jan 20 '17 at 12:12
  • Sorry, I don't understand your point. – Zumo de Vidrio Jan 20 '17 at 12:14
  • I meant now I have a computer where web server installed and have a site running localhost. And I tried and success open the site on another computer by modified the host file and point to that localhost site. Is it an appropriate method? – Camel Jan 20 '17 at 12:15
  • How do you access from the other computer to your webserver? What do you exactly type as URL? – Zumo de Vidrio Jan 20 '17 at 12:19
  • Oh. Okay I changed the host file on another compiter by afding code localsiteaddress. Then would be okay to access the site from the web server. If you jave antivirus software just ask it to unblock the port. – Camel Jan 20 '17 at 12:21
