Such a great people here! I can’t wait to know your stories too

Hello! I’m a video engineer, working on software for color transformation and digital cinema mastering. I discovered Nethserver when our IT admin chose it to run a fileserver. To me it seems like a lot of extra stuff to learn when I’m already comfortable with Linux command line, but it’s not my call. So I’m slowly figuring it out.


@Elliott great to hear you like to learn more. As always: if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to open a support topic and ask! There is a huge community behind NethServer with over 1500 people with a LOT of knowledge to share.

I am an IT technician in a company, with a role of mainly asset handler. However we carry out laptop repairs and reinstallation of OS.
Seeing SCCM working in my company i learnt how to install it on a new domain with exchange server 10 of Microsoft. I met success in that goal but seeing the licence issues. i had to uninstall the things as they were all installed on evaluation versions.
Then one of our colleague mentioned about Nethserver and it got me in .


Welcome Waseem!!!
I guess that all of us have did it, at least for some time

Where is your collegue? I’d like to give him a medal :smiley:

I would, but i am not sure he wanted to be publicised or not, so not naming him. :zipper_mouth_face:

Upgrading the Scapegoat, but in the wrong way.
move the HDD to another hardware, less crappier, but i have to manage the connection to the web management to re-connect Zones, ips and network cards. Links refuses to connect to with “SSL Error”. And I did not found the way to say it “ok, i know, ovverride the error and get me to the login page, smart dude!”

@wdar don’t worry about privacy, you only have to ask if he is willing to join our community and find the same help you received from us already.
Giving a (special) badge is just a special reward from our community added to someone’s profile. Nothing fancy, but it reflects the gratitude we have for people that help the project further.

Hi! Sorry for late answer. :smiley: I have tried Ubuntu Server as the operating system for my personal mail server with Postfix and Dovecot but I wasn’t able to make it work. My father at his office has its own mail server, so I went to their domain in the browser and the nethserver’s welcome page came up. That was the time when I thought I could use this software for my mail server. For the first time, it wasn’t successful because of the domain. I used a free domain, so I bought one and it worked perfectly. My only problem was that I wasn’t able to send mails because of my ISP provider, so, I started using Sendgrid as my external SMTP server aaand it works perfectly. I’m very happy with it.

My only problem is the antivirus software. ClamD or what. If I upload a file to Nextcloud, the CPU and RAM goes to 100%, the upload stuck at 100% and I can’t access the webGUI from my MacBook anymore for minutes, so I removed the whole antivirus software from my mail server. I don’t think, it’s very safe, but my hardware can’t keep up. I’m planning to upgrade my Pentium D with 3.5GB of RAM to a more powerful system but I have to think about the case as well.

I’m also planning to make a video about how I made my mail server or home server. :smiley:

Most of lack of performance is due to the CPU. Maybe a newer (and with more core, and faster ram) will ease a lot o performance stuckness. And maybe, also lower the power consumption.
