You’ve been reading this stuff far too long. It time to switch from a consumer to a creator, a reader to a revolutionary and the combination of Wordpress with Windows Home Server can kickstart your path to blogging fame and fortune! It’s time for the next project in We Got Served’s Summer of Home Server.
One of the major areas of differentiation for Windows Home Server 2011, compared to competing storage offers is that is runs on the Windows platform. WHS is basically a suite of applications and services running on Windows Server 2008 R2, and whilst you may not see that server operating system day to day, it’s there – and there’s a lot of cool stuff that you can do with it!
Way back at the beginning of the series, we discussed the core features of a home server, and we’ve walked through most of those features as they appear in OS X Lion Server. In the last chapter, I showed you how to set up and configure the platform’s VPN server for remote access to files and folders. But we can also access a richer view of published content on the server (both internally and remotely) via a web browser, by setting up Apple’s Web and Wiki Servers. Today, I’ll show you how.
