For our development environment, we are recently switched to a common LAMP server on Ubuntu OS.
To access the server space from developer machines, we have to install & configure the Samba suite on the Server.
Install Samba server
sudo apt-get install samba
Copy default Samba configuartion file as back up
sudo cp /etc/samba/smb.conf /etc/samba/smb.conf.backup
Edit Samba configuarion file with minumum configuration
sudo nano /etc/samba/smb.conf
Replace current content with below one
[global] log file = /var/log/samba-log.%m lock directory = /var/lock/samba share modes = yes [homes] comment = Home Directories browseable = no read only = no create mode = 0750
Set a psswaord for Samba user
sudo smbpasswd -a <user_name>
Create a home folder for user
sudo service smbd restart
Now you can use the file explorer window like
\\<your_server_ip>\<user_name>\ in Windows Machine or
smb:\\<your_server_ip>\<user_name>\ in Linux & MAC.
Do you need any help on Linux & Server? I'm happy to help you.
