Hi there George and welcome

Is the server in order to store and share your photos?

If so I would recommend a cloud storage solution and the best one will be dropbox (

It is in the long run much cheaper, safer and reliable then a server

When you go to You see the option in the top right to download software.

You download this and then install it and create an account. You can get 2GB for free to try it out.

you will then see a dropbox folder on your computer, you copy your photos to this and it will the upload them to your secure online space.

Then you do not need to worry about backups or anything as this is all taken care for you.

You can also ad the app to your phone and when you take a photo on your phone, it is automatically uploaded to it.

If you really want a server solution after understanding the advantages of this cloud solution, let me know and I can recommend this.

I only advise on dropbox as its cheaper, secure and reliable then a server.

Let me know your thoughts please.
