How To Set Up a Recipe Server

Today Gary asked…

Would you mind doing a walk-through on how to setup a file server, perhaps alongside my existing media server (movies and music) from a fairly new Linux user perspective.

Will different types of servers coexist without problems? I would like to setup a file server for recipes so that my wife could access them on a tablet that is mounted in the kitchen. How would you setup a menu that would allow her to quickly access a recipe when there are perhaps hundreds on the server? Would I also need a database of some kind to do this efficiently or is there a simpler way of getting this done? Will I need an app on the tablet (Android OS) to access the server?

Thanks

Gary
