if i don't download it, are you saying i should write Linux code from scratch?
i don't really have that much time on my hands. besides, it is just a hobby server. i am still not entirely sure if i want to open it up fully to the public, or or not. i may just let only a select few people to be able to access it.
it's not like i will be running a corporate hosting service. just a personal website, with a hobby forum (if for no other reason than just because i can). other features may arrive in the future, but network port 80 is likely to be the extent of it.
what the heck is a private topic?~Travis
I want to see you removed from mod
We all, in the Italian section
We have noted that a lot of posts have been removed because you don't like pictures of women.
Oh, you have also removed the picture of a very long white train
...and then back on topic...Don't disregard the various "Pi"s for a server. They have plenty of power for a server, you can attach gobs of storage via USB (or SATA for some models), and most importantly they use very little electricity. Personally I made the switch last summer simply because my server was making my room too hot.
Wrong! Don't speak for me!I had answered with tecnical details, and then I removed my posts, so you can completely ignore what I was trying to say.
Nobody wants to stop you.

i have been researching Snort IPS. i used it in the past, though i am sure it has changed since then (it used to be just a IDS). anybody use it? is it still relevant?~Travis
I am sure i will have to do a custom re-install, as the out-of-the-box general install is a little limp on packages. yes, i could manually install the packages i want, but rather than having to chase dependencies, i will let the software do it.
