I've been trying to set up a music server and running into some difficulty.

I want to be able to stream music and video to my network and over the internet.

From what I've read so far ampache is what I would like to use but I've yet to find a user friendly guide on how to set it up. I've never set up a server before so all of the guides and documentation have just confused the heck out of me.

I would really appreciate it if someone can explain how to set up ampache, or point me in the right direction to help me bridge the learning curve.

Thanks so much.
