    I posted this in the Apple discussion forums but have received no response. So, let's give this a try.

    As the title indicates, I'm a newb to Apple server stuff. I don't even have a server running. I have SLS evaluation on the way, but I have a ton of "can it..." questions, but I won't dump them all here.

    Regarding wikis. Would it be possible to have a public website that is run by the Wiki server with blogs and all?

    If I were to host multiple virtual domains (for friends or clients), could wiki server run them as well?

    On a larger scale, would it be possible (or advisable) to use SLS to run a public site for a community like a church or other volunteer run organization? Wiki, blog, file sharing, calendar, ABS, Podcast producer, the whole deal? Or is it all really designed to be an internal (meaning and office/staff environment) system only?

    Yes you should be able to run the wiki server as a public website, I don't know about the multiple virtual domains as I've never played with that, but it should work.

    Also to run it for an organization, yes it should and was designed to work that way internally or externally (never used Podcast producer, but I don't see a reason why it won't work either).

    I too am new to this whole server thing but I can tell you that so far it has been a great addition to our setup we use the wiki side of things a lot and no its not an office environment and we run most of it on the internet (public) side , although password closed off

    I am still on 10.5 , my upgrade disk due this week , but read this it gives a good idea of how it could work in your community.
