I created a blog server in my garage from scratch using Ubuntu Server.
Have a look here. http://burrell.dyndns.org/
Has been in operation for some months now. All free software. Anyone interested in doing the same? I can document the method this summer.
Have been playing around with Ubuntu server. So decided to setup a web server in the workshop.
Loaded Ubuntu server, XAMPP, WebMin, and WordPress. Redirected port 80 on the router. Now it goes. I intend to make a HowTo pdf in time.
but for now have a look.
Too late It is down for now
