Re: [Fed-Talk] A fair critique of Lion Server



Php is a security job that's for sure but if you keep it updated it's just as good as everything else. Php is actually my favorite development environment for web apps.

If you want the Server Admin.app and Workroup Manager, etc; the stuff in /Applications/Server on Snow Leopard and earlier, you have to go to Apple.com and download it:  http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1419

It seems Apple is positioning Lion server for home use, but their out-of-the-box configurations are not particularly useful for a common situation, where the SOHO has a fixed IP address and runs its own DNS for its domain.   Personally, I've never understood the need for print servers with networked printers, but then I'm not running a major installation (particularly a school :-) that needed to do print quotas, etc.
