Nice! +1 purpose-built machine.

This thing will crush Ubuntu-- even Unity will run fine with the on-board graphics. I'm assuming it'd be accessed via SSH primarily anyway, so... IRRELEVANT!!

I love to see the word "server" in a build title. Awesome job.

Hi there,

Yeah it's running quite smoothly, especially with nginx as the web server.

Management of the back end, code maintenance etc., will be through SSH, and the front facing app will be accessed through any web browser.

Thanks for taking a look at my build,

Great budget build. How does your app work? Tell us! :D

It's essentially a project management platform. It will be used to coordinate the day to day activities of a small business, keep track of contracts, invoices, projects, contacts and more.

Built with codeigniter, it makes use of the MVC architecture and its backend is a simple mysql db.
