I've got an old server in my basement and i want to host a forum on it. I know there are also online free forum hosting but i want to learn what i'm doing. I want to use this thread to ask for advice. Right now my plan is to install fedora on the server cause i use it as a desktop too and then start installing things like apache and php. And also make the server available on my local network so i can access it from my room instead of from the basement. I guess my first questions are
- Is fedora a good OS to do this ?
-What kind of software do i need to install for forum hosting ?
-Would it be better to use the old server wich has 2 pentium 3 processors or my old pentium 4 pc?
thx in advance
