I'm in the process of setting up my Mac Mini as a home server. For that reason I seek some guidance:
I want to have a "Fileserver" meaning 2 different user accounts with read/write permissions to 1 specific folder each. Meaning that they have to be "chrooted" to that folder. Do I use ftp, ssh? Should I create the users like regular users on the Mac Mini or?
I want to have a customizeable webserver which i can install php, mysql, phpmyadmin, django etc. Should I use the buildt in webserver? MAMP? XAMP?
I want to be able to mount my fileserver on my other macs.
What are the best approaches for these 2 problems? Tips and tricks are highly appreciated!
PS: I also got the "server" app for Lion.. Though it seems quite waste of money for my use :)
