My Server app for Windows Phone 8 with Windows XP

Hi! I have a home server running Windows XP - i know..... I made a mistake not install win server, but i didn't know of it then. Now i got a fully working server With dlna, vpn, sftp, http file downloading With Apache 2 Directory listing. I would really like to use the app "My Server" from Microsoft, With my server. I cannot move all my server data easily, as it is way past 100GB. Therefor, it's a Challenge installing win server. It's an old pc too. 712mb ram. Would i somehow be able to use the my server app for Windows phone 8, if i installed like a addon or something for the win xp pro server i got? Please help me, and thanks a lot in advance!

  1. No. The Windows 8 "My Server" app talks to Server 2012 Essentials, not a PC running XP.

    It depends on exactly what you are wanting to do.
    But I don't believe there is a 'patch' to make the Win8 My Server app converse with Windows XP.

    XP is not a server OS.
