Power Up!

This guide is intended for users new to Linux who are setting up a Linux server in their home. As a result, we have endeavoured to keep the articles short and simple if at all possible - and provide links to other sites if more detail is required.

Linux provides a huge amount of server functions of which we could not possibly cover all: instead, we aim to show how to achieve all the things a typical home server user will need. We try to do this via step by step screenshots where possible.

It is assumed that readers are familiar with the concepts covered in our Desktop Guide - and are comfortable with using the command line in particular

Why not salvage that old PC in your cupboard and use it as a server? The great thing about Linux is that it is not heavy on resources so, unless your PC is really old, you can repurpose it as a home server to store all your files, backups or stream digital content to your television.
