I'm thinking of buying myself a server for at home, to be part of a larger online project I'm getting paid to do. (Basically, I want to be able to touch my chunk of the Internet. ) I just have a few questions for those who are knowledgable? 1. T1 internet: Must have? Or will cable speeds work? 2. Adding space... once a hard drive runs out of space, you pop in another one, but the part that stumps me is how to get it to recognize more? I can't be changing harddrives in the middle of coding... or can I? 3.Centos? Or Ubuntu? 4. Cpanel alternative? I want the file manager feature the most, but the graphical management is soo much nicer than FTP! Is there a free/cheap alternative/ I've tried PHPMyAdmin or whatever, and no file managing thingy mabob. Thanks so much!!
