- Server (Ubuntu Lucid): This is where I store my data, run my HTTP, email, FTP server... It will be a VPS.
So simply put, I'll be working with Windows as a client (IDE, Client Email Software, FTP...) and Ubuntu as a server to manage my data (Mercurial, Apache, mySql...)
I'm new, I wonder if there is already someone doing this and working with this mix of client/server. What are the possible downsides of this method? Is working over FTP with a VPS a good idea or not?
I'm a solo-developer, I was thinking in the last few days of the best approach to work with the cloud. I do web development. Please reply with anything related and helpful, I would appreciate a lot developers that will write lengthy post about their working environment. I have exactly no specific idea in mind, just looking to make better.
