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

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

My question is, how to share file/folder from my ubuntu server to windows 7 ? This will make my backup task more easier.

I found this guy in this video doing the same exactly what I want for. - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rG8SW8iMH8U

So, how to make connection between Windows 7 and my ubuntu server ?

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
