View Full Version : [ubuntu] What to add to my server

April 24th, 2012, 10:14 PM
I recently made a server from an old computer. I added public folder sharing, torrent downloading and control, and a media player.

What else should I add to the server? I might add some gaming servers to it, but it's not a very powerful computer.

Maybe a blog using a tool such as Wordpress.

...or Drupal instead of Wordpress. Anyway you would have to start by installing the web server (i.e., Apache).

Other ideas:

Install open ssh server so you can administrate it remotely.
Create a backup system from your desktop or laptop to the server.
Configure it so you can access your files from the Internet:

Look for a DDNS provider and create an account.
Install and set up ddclient.
Forward the necessary ports from your router to your server.

Just some thoughts.
