I am new to home servers, im an IT engineer apprenctice, so as you can expect im on a low budget, and my knowledge of servers is not vast, although my knowledge in hardware and networking is extensive.
Anyway, my problem is, i have downloaded rockstor, i got it running, i have access to the web browser, i have made an admin account. BUT i dont know how to set-up basic file sharing, how upload and download, and all the basics, ive tried a few solutions, such as freenas but rockstor seems to be a lot more user friendly, and for a beginner, thats what i want.
If anyone could help me with a little guide that would be great
Ultimately i would like a NAS server i can upload and download to from anyway, that is my end goal. I do already have the hardware apart from the drives and RAID card:
- I5 3470
- Asus H61M-K Motherboard
- 8Gb RAM
- Various drives going from 160Gb to 320Gb, will be buying 3x3TB
- Will be buying a cheap RAID card
- Logic server case 2U
Thank you !
