Looking at Lion Server but can't tell...

Post by Guest » Sun Jan 08, 2012 11:09 am

I am thinking about getting the Mac Mini with Lion Server installed. How every, I have found the documentation to be confusing.  I am needing a Filemaker, SMTP, PHP, MySQL web server mainly. I would really like to talk to someone who is using this type of setup first.

Hi David, lion server will do all the things you have listed, you will need to know what you're doing with DNS though.

Indeed Lion will do all of what you need.  MySQL is not included with Lion however.  You'll need to install it yourself. 

It's not that bad though.  I've walked a class of Grade 12's through it!  hehe

 

Lion instead comes with PostgreSQL.  I'm not familiar with it, but I assume that it's basic functionaly is similar to MySQL.
