I am trying to setup an OS X server so that I can see it from outside of my internal network.
I have OS X Mavericks with the Server app installed as a VM for testing purposes right now. It has access to the internet and I can browse it from my local Macs on the network.
I would like to be able to set it up as a basic web server to which I can set up a website or a small cloud backup etc.
I have various domain names which I use for my website and I could repurpose one of these or purchase a new one if needed.
I tried just turning on the Websites option which didn't work, I did have a play around with the DNS options adding in the IP of my domain etc but didn't get anywhere.
Do I need anything else besides a Mac with OS X Server and a domain name? Or am I missing something completely?
I am fairly technical but this is a bit out of my depths here I have done my google searching but everything I seem to find is always based to set up a local web host or within a corporate network.
If anyone can point me in the right directions I would appreciate it.
