just bought a dedicated server, coming in the mail this Friday. gonna use it for a 24/7 Minecraft server and maybe some web apps to experiment with stuff. I'm also going to have it connected to my TV as a media center occasionally. best Linux distro for dedicated server? bonus points for easy to install and configure

    The distro doesnt really matter if you're adapt with linux. But I guess ubuntu

    @ScribeOfGoD yeah, I sorta figured as much but I just don't know much about dedicated server config

    Depending on the specs you should take a look at proxmox. @linuxxx

    I would definitely take a look at proxmox. I have it on mine which has an AMD fx 6300, with 8gb ram and it works wonderfully

    If you need help setting up your server when it arrives I'd be more than willing to help :)

    Install xenserver and virtualise everything

    Ubuntu.
    Or vsphere/hyperv/xen for virtualization

    You could do the exact same things on a single 1€/mo VPS on Aruba though 🤔. And if you really wanna be a baller, you could get a VM (even bigger ones) for each individual project and still come up cheaper for the next 10 years or so

    @endor yeah, I just wanted to own a server though. for experimenting and tinkering with.

    @ScribeOfGoD so proxmox is basically a tool for provisioning virtual servers? might give that a try

    @mjones44 it also has the ability to make containers, in addition to virtual machines. It features a very nice web ui to make things seamless.

    @ScribeOfGoD oh very cool I'll have to give that a try

    If you need separated server instances: proxmox.
    If you just need one I'd choose Debian, it's pretty straight forward.
