Make my own Dropbox / Ubuntu One server at home

Ok, so what I'm wanting to do is turn my old computer into an Ubuntu based cloud server that i can access from outside my home wifi network. For example, I'd like to be able to access all the information on my server from my smartphone while I'm at school or at work. Could someone please explain to me how to do this?

Do you want to access files, or interact with the server? Commandline or Desktop? – Jasper van den Bosch Nov 27 '12 at 11:11
I want to access files on the server, for example i want to be able to pull files off the server onto my other devices, and vice versa, or simply stream files off the server. – Christopher Torok Dec 15 '12 at 7:18
