Question on CentOS as a "home" server..

Have a aging but still solidly performing dell d620 that I use for daily use as a developer toy and training tool and am wanting to run a small little "home server" to host two of my blogs and a friend's blog or two and to host cloud based snapshots for when I can't / don't choose to use Ubuntu / gdrive /dropbox or the like, I'm familiar with the desktop versions of ubuntu and fedora/opensuse but none of the server versions....Heard CentOS would be a solid lightweight option but this box is x86 and I only see x64 versions any recommendations, I'd prefer a rather simply to use Rpm - based setup with reliable speed and security if at all possible given the current setups' constraints...


thanks to all in advance

thanks and seeing as its loosely based on both suse and fedora should be rather simple to configure either one on top correct? thanks for quick reply and link TobiSGD... however getting and port 443 file or DL not found any other ideas for a direct link didn't see it in x86 on distrowatch either..

You could also try http://sms.it-ccs.com/index.html

While it isn't RMP based (it's based on Slackware, for starters) it does come with a lot of toys and it's design to be a "home server" ...

thanks smokey-justme will look into that is it as compilation heavy as I've heard slackware to be, not against compiling as I'm an android firmware debugger on the side but not wanting to be taxing the porr old box of mine at 250% endlesssly...

I'm sorry but I don't know what port 443 has to do with any of this..

In any case.. I'm not going to put a dirrect link, however here's a directory structure from one of the x86 (i386) Spanish mirrors: http://centos.mirror.xtratelecom.es/6.5/isos/i386/

Bin1 and Bin2 are what you're looking for...

---
Now, regarding Superb Mini Server... It's Slckware based but with a lot of additions for home server usage.. Only CLI and a prepared Webmin.. If you don't have some extra programs that aren't found int SMS by default or in the main Slackware repository then, indeed, you have to compile... But just for file sharing and http, that won't be the case..

It's worth a try, in my opinion, but hey.. your system, your rules..

Re post #19: Centos isn't based on Suse and only loosely based on Fedora; its actually a free rebuild of RHEL; hence suitability for a Server

(clarifying, Fedora is RH's R&D distro and is thus several 'versions' ahead - if it works good in Fedora, it'll probably end up in RHEL sometime later...)
