    So, this is the first time I've used Lion server as we want to take our collaborative efforts to the next level at work, but I have a few questions.

    1) Where is the best place to put things like git repos and client information and all the stuff we all need to use on a daily basis? within the server home directory (most of the folders are blocked for anyone accessing)? Do I just create a folder called Server inside the home directory? (seems a bit hacky).

    2) Secondly, how do I set it up so that mysql and other web servers run from this shared location for everyone to access? if we're working on a big site and want to use the same development database? on top of this can we run multiple virtual hosts something like MAMP can do on local machines? we can go to http://site1 and http://anothersite etc but no idea if you can do this?

    3) Lastly, Any hints and tips for using server in a shared dev environment would be greatly apprecitaed :)

    Thanks guys!

    You can put anything anywhere you want as long as you mount it as a sharepoint. As for MYSQL you can tell MYSQL where the DB resides. I have a box that connects to a MySQL Farm, all I needed to do was tell MYSQL where said Farm was.
