Hi,

I have no experience with Linux whatsoever, I've always had windows based PC's, but have decided to look at Linux for a project.

I set up my own business in 2009 and have a database of 10,000+ contacts with documents & records attached to them. I currently use ACT 11 as my database of choice. This is hosted locally on a fading laptop, along with all kinds of other business related programs.

What I'd like to do is revive an old PC (AMD Sempron 1700ghz I think, but can't really remember) host my database there and connect to it remotely via the internet/WAN. The aim is to have my laptop and my business partner able to update the database with new information. This should then enable me to extend th business easily in future by adding remote workers for telesales/mail marketing etc.

I'd also like to host my own website as I'd like to collect customer details in a mySQL database, but the cost of a PHP server is restrictive.

I don't know if this is possible for a home user to accomplish, but I'm willing to give it a shot.

Any advice on Linux builds and other software, including how to host and access a database would be gratefully recieved.
