My Server – Part #2

Remember people , that I’ve posted on my blog saying that I’ve received my Server and here is a picture of it. Yeah , its a bit messy but there you have it. The quality isn’t that great as it was taken from a Camera Phone (my old hp hw6515e smartphone which is a 1.3MP Camera) . This is the picture of my Dell OptiPlex GX110 and it runs ubuntu linux. Here are the functions of my server :-

  1. File server – Usually I store my DVD ISOs or some large file there. Despite the 30GB HDD , I still try to make use of every single byte that I’ve. Of course my large files , videos , music all resides in my main PC. I need to find some time to transfer all my music from my pc to my server and then find a way to appear in my iTunes music sharing list. I am sure there is a way. For now let it be like this , once I’ve saved up enough , I’ll get a Hard Disk for my Server (a larger one)
  2. Torrent server – It runs Deluge with WebUI installed , so that I can add torrent , remove torrent by just any web browser. I don’t have to VNC to the server and control it from there , although I am forced to do it when I want to manage my bandwidth (i.e reduce the upload rate and download rate to make way for my online gaming or YouTube streaming)
  3. Web Server and some lame cheap Text-gaming server – A server isn’t complete without a Web Server. So I’ve installed Apache , PHP and MySql in it. Mainly , I wanted to learn more on web scripting and other things. It would be better for me to test it locally then uploading here. It will be a waste of bandwidth and resources and I don’t want to be held responsible if my script hogs bandwidth or contains flaws. The best way to do is test it in Localhost. My server is live by the way – meaning that it can be accessed by anyone on in the Internet but I am not going to post its URL. No , not yet. I’ve to secure it properly first before posting it
So far thats all that I can think of , of course it will be my primary Linux box as well and it will be used to compile programs and other things. I might even start some binary site (compile oss projects , optimise it and then release it) . Oh yeah , the specs you ask :-
*Drums Roll*Â
Dell OptiPlex GX110 - Pentium III (Coppermine) 800 Mhz || 256MB SDRAM 100Mhz || 3Com Corporation 3c905C-TX/TX-M || Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ || Intel i810 series Board = Intel Corporation 82801AA || SCSI to ATA adapter - ATA Maxtor 2F030L0 || 52x Generic CDROM DriveÂ
There you have it , now stop bugging me and asking me to post my server specs. Oh , nobody asked for it anyway. Just adding spices to make my blog more interesting , thats all !Â
Its My beloved Server - That crunches all the task that I throw at it !

w00t my new server

W00t , My good ol’ friend and my negihbour gave his old PC away (well I requested and he gave it to me). Anyhow , its a Dell OptiPlex GX110 Model (Pentium III 800Mhz , 256MB of RAM , 30GB of HDD). Well the HDD is mine but other then that its his parts all right. Anyhow I’m pretty happy right now as I’ve my own server at home. It will be ideal for me to bypass restricions and other things that I face along the way (i.e in college , some cheap library computers and in office envoriment). I will post the pics and more to come. Maybe I’ll come up with a page just to dedicate the rigs that I’ve. Oh yeah , its running ubuntu 8.04 LTS with XFCE. I just need a GUI a lightweight gui just to get some things done – sometimes CLI can be pain in the butt
More pics to come and my desktop screenie
Anyhow back to work !. Oh , I’ll try my best to update my blog as well !
