    I've just repaired an old mac mini of mine (mid 2010) and loaded it with MacOS 10.12.4 as I want to create a server. I downloaded MacOS server and when I came to install it, There was a pop up that said that I had to use an older version. How do I do this or should I wait for MACOS server to catch up?

    Almost sounds like a bug. Mac mini mid 2010 fits the minimum requirements for macOS Sierra. There is no reason, that Server 5.3 is not running on it.
    I guess you downloaded a fresh install from the App Store and then started it from your Applications folder?
    An alternative is to download the onto a different machine and then copy to your Mac mini's Application folder.

    My $0.02

    What version of Server do you have? You should be using Server 5.3 with 10.12.4. That version is working fine for me.

    You need to first update the OS before you update the server.
    So make sure you get the Sierra version current before loading the server app on it from the app store.
