If you've been thinking about using OS X Lion Server at home as a central hub for your music, video, photos etc. then documentation is pretty thin on the ground as to set up and configuration.

So I've been pulling together a full guide to using Lion Server as a Home Server over at We Got Served. We're up to Part 15, and adding new sections as quickly as possible!

Hopefully worth a read for those thinking of setting up a Mac Server:

Part 1 is here: Using Apple OS X Lion Server as a Home Server (Part 1) | We Got Served

and the rest of the guide looks like this:
  • Introduction
  • Choosing Your Hardware
  • Features
  • Installation
  • The Server App
  • Storage and Network Configuration
  • Users and Groups Configuration
  • Profile Manager and Macs
  • Profile Manager and iOS Devices
  • File and Folder Sharing
  • Shared Address Book
  • Shared Calendar
  • iChat Server
  • Time Machine Backup
  • Windows PC Backup

QUOTE Thanks

Tried joining We Got Served, but after I authenticated, it rejected my password! It seems just a blatant way to try to get you to pay for "upgrade". It is 100% full of pesky animated adds, and I can't see any value in the site. Certainly I am not going to fork out money for something that I can't even log into!
