I'm pretty new to linux, I'm a long time mac user, and have been using a Mac Mini as my Plex and wordpress server for some time. Looking at Apples latest generation of Mac Minis, it looks like they no longer are a great option for servers. So here's my setup and wants in a nut shell.
Currently my Mac Mini hosts 3 wordpress sites and is my Plex server. The machine is running OS 10.10.2 Yosemite with Server running, and has 2 Drobo Gen 2 devices attached via Firewire 800.
I use 1 Drobo for my Plex Media, and the other drobo is used for machine backup.
Reading online, Looks like the Drobo 1 and 2 Genereations only show up as 2TB max segments on Linux
So I would scrap the Drobo cases and put all the drives internal into the linux server tower.
I want to build a new Linux server that can take over these tasks. So my wants would be, A linux server that can host more than 1 wordpress site, run plex, and would have a RAID setup similar to Drobo, where I can add more drives or replace smaller/failed drives easily enough (doesn't have to be automatic rebuild like the drobo, as long as its possible and not to tricky to do)
what Linux Server OS and other options should I be looking at?
thanks everyone in advance!!
