My home server

Rather than throw out an old computer I’ve decided to put it to some good use.  I’ve turned it into a server.  I’m primarily using it to play around with ownCloud (http://owncloud.org).

The specs of the computer are as follows:

Compaq Presario SR1915AN
AMD Sempron Processor 3400+ 1.8GHZ
80GB 7200 RPM Hard Disk
1GB RAM

Other details regarding the server:

OS – Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
Webserver – Apache 2.4.7
PHP version 5.5.9
MySQL 5.5.37
ownCloud 6

LibreOffice

Use a free (free as in freedom) office suite i.e. word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, database etc.  Create documents using an open standard, the OpenDocument Format (ODF).  Works on multiple operating systems, GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, MS Windows.

My entire family is using LibreOffice – no MS Office in this house.
