my goal is to run my C5 website from my new desktop thru my secure home ADSL connection.
I will build my website using probably using Silence and other PRE 5.7 versioned addons, which I have in abundance.
Now can I just use the desktop edition OR do I need to install the Ubuntu server edition???
please advise and thx
I think your main constraint will be performance. The maximum upload (ie, serving) speed of ADSL is about 1 Mbps, so anyone viewing your site remotely won't have a fun time of it. It will be worse if there are multiple clients accessing it simultaneously. Off-site caching would help, but that wouldn't be trivial to arrange.
But I still wouldn't serve from home.
