Amahi Linux Home Server

The Amahi Home Server is a Linux home server based on Fedora (and later on Ubuntu). Your machine becomes a "Home Digital Assistant" (HDA) after the installation. It provides a growing set of community packaged apps like an iTunes server, UPnP server, calendar server, a wiki, shared network storage, network backups, a printer server, VPN, and a plug-in architecture built on Ruby on Rails.

    Release Notes: This release can shut down (or reboot) your Amahi HDA remotely from the dashboard. It includes fixes in user creation (due to a Fedora issue), DNS resolution across the VPN, a much improved diskmounter script, improvements to the installer VPSs and many smaller fixes. Also included is Portuguese/Portugal support and improved Polish support. Japanese localization has begun.

    •  10 Dec 2009 20:26

      Release Notes: This release is based on Fedora 12. It includes over 30% performance improvements and a much smaller memory footprint. Also included is preliminary support for PDCs (Primary Domain Controllers) with Windows 7 clients. In addition, a new Web-based installer is included with auto-detection of network settings. Enhanced to later support Ubuntu. User login pages are included, with setup pages only available for (also new) admin users. This release also provides support for virtual private servers (VPSs).

        Release Notes: This release is an entirely new repo for Amahi on Fedora 12, with a brand new Web-based, much nicer installer, mod_rails (about a 10% faster Web interface and a much smaller memory footprint). This is in preparation for a new login system for users and a few other user interface enhancements that are coming. Users installing from this test repo will be expected to have to reinstall later due to these changes.

          Release Notes: This is the alpha release of the new upcoming release of Amahi for Fedora 11. This is meant as the first release with support for internationalization (multiple languages) and Phusion Passenger (a.k.a. mod_rails). Some major features like setup pages need to be released on top of this alpha.

          •  30 Oct 2009 21:13

            Release Notes: Included in this release (platform version 4.2) are massive improvements in performance for writes (300% to nearly 700%) and modest performance in reads (15% to 20%) to the production Samba settings. Also included are minor tweaks to some messages that were not accurate.

            We have an alpha of Amahi for Fedora 9 (search the wiki). It is not recommended unless you would like to hack :-)

            It may be a few days until it goes to beta, which should work nearly fully.

            Thanks for the Downloads
            I could now download binaries (yum repos) and source code (svn). Thank you!

            Re: NO DOWNLOAD!
            I'm tempted to just say "RTFM" ;-) ...

            We would rather not post the direct links
            anywhere for the reasons we have mentioned already, since we're starting and don't have mirrors yet.

            All you have to do is type http:// at the front,
            then the repo ( is the current one, f7 is the
            previous one) and add the name of the directories for the RPMs at the end you can download to your heart's content. This is meant to be used as a yum repo.

            For the source code, you can get the rpms directly, or better yet, go to the sourceforge page ( ) and hit the svn repo (

            C'mon, send us patches!

            Below is an excerpt from our technology page ( ) (soon to be in a developers area).

            Get the Code

            We are taking the approach of adding a repo to the GNU/Linux install process to installing Amahi. So, there is no conventional software "download" to install "by hand."

            However, if you need to get the code by hand, it's in our repos. NOTE: We do not link to them directly on purpose, because web spiders unnecessarily crawl them, sucking the bandwith which otherwise we'd like to be available for you for a faster install.

            The code is in the directories i386, x86_64 and noarch of the repo. The current repo can be accessed at The source code is in the svn SourceForge repo.
