CLOSED: newbie server guy question

Postby bob58523 » Mon Feb 17, 2020 2:44 pm

Hello... New to servers, I have an HP ML350 G6 with 8 X 900gb hard drives and 56gb of ram. I want to use it as a home server, I have my own DDNS with 1gb internet service. I'd like to have plex, some file sharing/sync capability, etc. I also would prefer ubuntu/debian base (more familiar with that). Would Amahi be the way to go? Does it make a difference if I have my own DDNS (free from my provider)? I looked at the install and it mentions Fedora 27, is there a way to use ubuntu? If this is possible would ubuntu server be the way to go? Sorry for all the questions.

Thanks,
Bob

Amahi may be a good fit for you. However, it'd Fedora 27 only. We don't support Ubuntu. We are primarily a Fedora based add on server platform.

Does it make a difference if I have a pre-exisiting DDNS through my internet provider?... What about CentOS?

thanks again

No. Use whatever DNS you want.

Amahi 11 on Fedora Server ONLY!

See Amahi Docs for details.
