View Full Version : [all variants] Best Server OS for Older Computer

March 7th, 2010, 06:00 PM
I want to have a server that will work well with these specifications:

2.40 GHz Intel Pentium 4
512MB of Dual Channel DDR2 RAM
And I am going to buy a new Hard Drive for it

Any recommendations? I will be installing Wordpress and will probably set up an IRC server and VPN and things like that.

Ubuntu Server.

I'm sat infront of an ubuntu server with the same processor now.

It's ran sweet for the last couple of years at least.

Ubuntu Server +1.

I have Ubuntu Server running on an old P2 @ 450 MHz & it is running beautifully. Granted I have it running w\o the GUI, but it is great.
