Will this be fine for a lightweight setup?

Hi everyone,

this is my first post on this forum, sorry if I get anything wrong. I think I already know the answer to this, but how would this setup serve for a small selfhost server, while hosting things such as Trunk, Flox, Koel etc. It is only for local use
the build is as follows:
- GB 78LMT-S2P motherboard
- FX 4100
- 1GB ram
- 200W psu

I'm using these parts as they are left over from some old computers I already have (minus the psu)

I know the answer is almost certainly no, but for it to be suitable, what do I need to improve?
Thank you very much!

    what operating system and what's your expected load (<5 users?)

    ram is your first bottleneck, that CPU is okay, but might not handle more than 5 people

    of course changing the CPU will change the motherboard most likely

    After that it'll probably be ISP based on if you can support more than 5 users, if they're not LAN.

    not a doctor, not a lawyer, examples I use may not be fully researched so don't take out of context plz, don't @ me

    It will be maximum 5 users I'd imagine. Most users will be via LAN. I'm not sure which operating system, whichever is the most light weight.

    Thanks so much for yoyr response!

    You're definitely going to want a lot more than 1gb of ram. That hasn't been sufficient for anything for more than 10 years.
