comment Windows Admin looking to start out small with Linux (ubuntu) file server
ThinStation is for acting as a thin client (RDP/ICA etc), and generally someone wanting a 'file server' wants SMB, not FTP.

comment Windows Admin looking to start out small with Linux (ubuntu) file server
I've run Ubuntu on servers and had no problems with it. In the rare event the Ubuntu package doesn't do the job, there is always backporting from a newer version, or cross-compiling packages from Debian, which is widely regarded as one of the best distributions for servers.

Thanks, there's no sleep in batch so that's all you can do to wait :)

comment mod_rewrite not adding REDIRECT_URL environment variable
As these are two "not" comparisons, anything - including robots.txt or /static/ - will match, if you use an [OR], which means everything gets rewritten. The goal here was to say "redirect everything EXCEPT robots.txt and /static/ to index.php", so I believe it was correct as written.
