Any pc really the better the specs the better but i would not go blowing a pile of money on one also ssd makes a huge difference on speed.

I use linux mint (its ubuntu in a dress)

For a new user i would run xampp (linux version) once your confident you can dump and install apache 2 with the tools but not for beginers.

wired connection to internet yet again for speed

Domain name you can make but i reccomend buying one from here https://www.dynu.com/en-US/ they will also take control and place you on the net.

Open port 80 or 443 or any other port you want to use on routor dynu can redirect to your open port.

Now your online.

Save page loads and make pages shorter find it here. Show user sig once in a page
Use this to install an ext on your board no more ftp or path making.
Path too install this ext is ext/boardtools/upload https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtop ... #p13700571

I upgraded my old desktop computer years back by buying a better, faster multimedia system that was/is pretty bad ass.

My old computer was ok. AMD64 Athalon, 500GB drive, 12GB ram. So I loaded Linux Debian 9 up on it following the directions.
I had to download linux internet install .iso file and burn it to a disk to start. Then setup the router to connect the server.
I enabled DMZ in the router and set the ip of the server in there. This gives the server direct link to the internet, bypasses the router.

Of course you can check out ubuntu or xampp like martin uses. It just takes a little research to setup a server.
But linux commands can be baffling if you never used them.

What system is that? I use su to access root in linux.
And it's amazing what linux commands can do once you learn them.
I learned all dos commands back when computers came out but have not mastered linux commands yet.

Yup su to get access then type nautilus and root file system will auto pop up now you got root access and normal user access you need nautilus installed apt get nautilus or apt install nautilus.

Its one of the old ways.

Samsung SSD seems to be the goods :rock:

but has a short life span when page swapping hmm ?

and in further reading,

more RAM helps the load,

which saves the SSD. :lol:
