Apple’s brand new server OS is here, and our accompanying eBook, Using OS X Mavericks Server at Home, has been flying off the (virtual) shelves here at WGS.
Mac OS X Server
Following today’s announcement of the release of Apple’s OS X Mavericks operating system, I’m delighted to let you know that We Got Served’s latest eBook, Using OS X Mavericks Server at Home is now available to buy at the WGS Store.
Apple today released their ‘Gold Master” of OS X Mavericks 10.9, the latest iteration of their operating system to developers. That comes ahead of an anticipated release to the public towards the end of October.
Our latest home server eBook, Using OS X Mountain Lion Server at Home is available for Kindle.
Apple aren’t necessarily advertising OS X Server as the perfect home server – but can it do the job?
Following the release back in December of Using OS X Lion Server at Home, I’ve just sent a new edition for the Apple iPad off to the iBookstore for approval. Check out these preview screenshots.
Phew! Well it took a little while, but I’m delighted to say that both of We Got Served’s eBooks, Using OS X Server at Home and Windows Home Server 2011 Step by Step are now (finally) available in the iTunes Bookstore.
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.
So far, remote access to our Lion Server has been restricted to viewing the server webpage and checking out our Calendar remotely. That’s providing a little bit of value, but we need more! The good news is that we can remotely log in to the server from a remote location, and use it just as if we were sitting in front of it at home, using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) connection. I won’t bore you too much with the technology, but I should cover a couple of things before we get started.
Our Using OS X Lion Server at Home series and eBook has been surprisingly popular – it seems that many WGS readers are planning, or have bought and are configuring Apple’s OS X Lion Server for use as a home server. With a paucity of information out there on working through Lion Server’s (sometimes quirky) configuration and setup, I hope the guide has been useful to everyone whose taken a look at it so far.
For those who haven’t checked it out, and are thinking about a switch then this weekend, we’re running a special 20% discount on all sales of the Using OS X Lion Server at Home eBook!
OK, I know what you’re going to say – in fact, you’ve probably already said it. It’s all very well and good being able to back up my Macs to OS X Server, but hey, what about my PCs? Right at the start of the book, I mentioned that we’d look after you if you had a mixed PC and Mac home network, so let’s talk about backing up your PCs to Lion Server.
Over the last few parts of our (now extensive) guide to Apple OS X Lion Server, we’ve taken a look at some of the more differentiating features of the platform – namely the Shared Address Book, Shared Calendar and iChat Server. Today we’ll take a step back and look at one of the most important features in any home server platform – client backup.
