I am looking to put together a media server. The plan is to use it as a NAS with enough power to actually transcode HD content. It won't be used for anything else really. Just storing a ton of crap, accessing files through my desktop, and streaming through my ps3, roku, & laptop.
I'm not finding a lot of direction on this subject.
I have a standard ubuntu 14.04 machine. I use it daily under the user mh00h. Now lets say I'm interested in using this machine as a production server. How do I manage file permissions for Django and Nginx?
Nginx is currently configured to run under the www:data:www:data user and group.
I plan on getting an acer c7 chromebook and installing Ubuntu on it. I don't plan on using a desktop environment much, expect for playing games. My plan is to setup a server with Ubuntu, virtualgl, wine, and some games. Then I want to use turbovnc to remotely connect to play games.
Do I need a specific desktop environment, like gnome, kde, xfce, etc. to do this?
I plan to use it for audio and video files, plus storing a backup from titanium. Ive already used SDfix on the G3.
Is there an app for Windows Vista that could do the original formatting and let me bulk shovel some Audio files onto it? Am I better off putting it into the g3, use some android app to format it, then transfer files via USB?
