Good day to you guys..... hmm.. i am thinking of converting my Mac Mini 1.25ghz, 512 DDr, 10.5.8 into a server for my other Macs & Windows at home.

 

I would like to install the server version of os x. Will the OSX Server version be too much for my mini to handle...

 

Should i look for other softwares and just run them in 10.5.8..... please give me some advice and view on as to which will be better....

iPhone 3GS, iOS 6, 16GB, White, running 112 apps..

    Hi, you'd want to up the RAM to 1GB.

     

    10.5.8 Server can be expensive, & is the highest you can run.

     

    10.5.8 client can do just about everything 10.5.8 Server can do... what exactly do you want to do?

    Oh, then all you likely need to do is enable File Sharing in System Preferences>Sharing, though maybe iTunes Sharing in tTunes prefs.

     

    Do you mean internally for the barracudadrive? You could, or better yet ust add an external Firewire 400 Drive, bigger capacities, Mini runs cooler, possibly more reliable/longer lasting drive, right column here...
