Ubuntu Windows 7 File Sharing

Hi, sorry for newbie question. I’m totally new with Linux as well as Ubuntu.

Currently, I’m using Ubuntu LEMP stack and Wordpress.

Sounds noob right ? Sorry I’m totally newbie

In order to provide file-sharing to your Windows 7 client, you will need to create a Samba/SMB file share. The Ubuntu site provides information on how to accomplish this, and should be able to help you get it setup: https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide/samba-fileserver.html
