Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

For development purpose, I would like to have a small "server" at home with different tools such as :

  • SVN
  • MediaWiki

What would be the best solution to achieve this ?

I've thought of using this kind of device :

  • ZOTAC ZBOX Nano XS AD11 PLUS , AMD E-450, 2GB, 64GB SSD
  • Install a Linux server

Is it possible to restore svn repositories on a Linux server that have been started on a svn windows server ? Is it possible for a Mac to access this svn if it's under Linux ?

I would also like to access this server from the internet, what would be the best solution to do this ? Something like DynDNS ?

Basically, it's a good idea to use any Linux operating system for this task. I'm not sure how well the AMD E-450 will be doing with MediaWiki - I have no experience with that software.

Yes.

Yes, something like DynDNS can do the trick.
