Upgrade and simplify website hosting and admin

We have a website which is part content and part discussion forum. We have a rented Linux VPN currently hosted by Transip. It has the following features:

1. Webserver (NGINX), SSH certificate (Let's Encrypt), php, MySQL database

2. Wordpress with many plugins + a custom theme + large number of files (attachments, images, videos, etc.)

3. phpBB3 with 100,000 members, although only a few dozen are active + extensions + theme

We would like to keep the features of the site but make it easier to maintain:

1. Reinstall the software on a new machine running Plesk i.e. GUI rather than command line

2. Have the new machine have more disk space compared to the current (from 50Gb to 100Gb). We have to find a good, cheap, reliable VPN provider

3. We would like to be able to upgrade the key software (mySQL, php,...) from within Plesk (probably a standard Plesk feature?)

4. Possibly make a development version of the same machine which is easy to experiment with, and hidden, maybe under different domain-name and with password protected access.

5. Automate backups, including offsite, or at least make sure that our back-up system will be enough if we have a catastrophe

6. Not expensive

Skills: Apache, Linux, MySQL, PHP, WordPress
