I plan on building a file/web server in the next few months or so and I was sondering if anyone had any suggestions for hardware/software.
First off, I want this computer to be used for backing up home computers, backing up remote computers, be a webserver (for messing with) and FTP server.
Right now I plan on going with Fedora Core X and buying a small case (a shuttle?) and parts that are highly compatible with Linux. I plan on doing everything in shell, so it’d only need a basic video card I suppose.
I think I’d want some sort of RAID setup and a way to back up the stuff on that computer (to tape I think, but maybe there’s a better way).
I want to have this setup so I can freely reinstall OSes on my desktops without having to think about… anything really.
I’ll be googling about it for some time, but thought I’d ask the Forumosa tech squad as well.
