Minimum System Requirements

* • Mac server or desktop computer with an Intel, PowerPC G5, or PowerPC G4 (867MHz or faster) processor
* • 1GB of RAM
* • 20GB of available disk space

It looks like it should work on the mini.

Hunt around a bit here and on google. I recall reading some notes on experiences of people who have done it.

I have run OS X Server on Mac Minis. My advice is to max it out with RAM. You'll also want to think through the networking config such as:

- plug it in via ethernet instead of WiFi
- probably want to give it a static IP address instead of dhcp
- think carefully whether you want it inside or outside your firewall

I recommend any OS X Server running on a Mini to be a sandbox or development server for inside your firewall/vpn outside access only. If you are going to put a mini on the open Internet or in a DMZ, expect it to be look like a honeypot to hackers unless you really know how to restrict services and all that.

What I did is used Minis to evaluate OS X Server for a couple of projects. Decided I loved it and would use it for those projects. Bought 3 XServes for the production servers and a couple of cheap dual-Ethernet generic Linux/FreeBSD/OpenBSD boxes to act as firewalls. No doubt an XServe could be used as a firewall but why waste such a heavy-duty machine on such a nasty little task when a sub-$1000 commodity Intel-based 1U server worked fine for that.

These days I am not using OS X Server for web projects--I've standardized on Linux for production servers. But I still do all my development on Macs and setup Apache/PHP/MySQL/Python/mod_rewrite and whatever I need to develop and test before moving to a Linux staging and ultimately production environment. For these I typically use regular old OS X, not OS X Server.

sorry for the duplicate post. The little 1.25GHz Mini I am using is getting a little overwhelmed tonight (since it is running the type of development tools discussed in my previous msgs).
