New server

Published by at 7:44 am under HT/HTPC,Linux

I’ve been running this site and several others on an old Apple PPC based Mac Mini running Debian Linux, but have now decided it is time to upgrade. Hopefully, before the old hard drives spin their last. This time, I’ll build a “PC” from scratch. In addition to running WordPress on Apache2, the new server will server as a NAS for our laptops.
The new installation will also let me install and learn a couple of new technologies: LVM as a step toward a really new file system and XEN for virtualization. I plan to run my replacement web server in a virtual machine for greater security. Another VM may later be used to run mythbuntu as a MythTV backend.
The machine will be built in a “home theater”(HTPC) case so that it can fit under a cabinet in a hallway.
