I was recently downloading Ubuntu server to put on an old machine to serve media around my house.
I was wondering why they recommend the 64-bit version of there server? Does this affect anything if I am putting it on a 5 year old computer? What about 32 bit?
Also if you could recommend some best practices for a home server. I would like to share files stream. Also host some webpages as well as use it as my git repository.
A tutorial links would be appreciated or very explicit advice :)
Please and thank you.
