I have a Xeon based server at home for years running windows server 2008. I've been running a iis webserver there, first with classic asp and /sql server based pages. Later I h ave added php and wordpress to the server. Now 2008 is removed from Microsofts updates list, and I'm tired of problems adding new web project to the server. At work I just runs a windows pc with wampserver, and it just works. So heres what I want to do:

Format the whole damn ting, install a Linux operating system(server?) Use Wampserver for web development, and something else for ftp?

I have from time to time tried to play with Linux Mint, and Ubuntu, but really, I have little experience with these systems, that's the truth. That's why I ask if there are someone with knowledge to can advise me about what is the best setup? I need it to be in a graphic user interface as i easily get lost in commands.

The first problem I see is

WAMPServer only runs on WINDOWS

(Windows 10 Pro 64bit) (Wampserver 3.2.0 32bit & 64bit)
<Apache versions MULTIPE> <PHP versions MULTIPLE> <MySQL Versions MULTIPLE>
<MariaDB versions MULTIPLE> <phpMyAdmin versions MULTIPLE> <MySQL Workbench 8.0.16>

Read The Manuals Apache -- MySQL -- PHP -- phpMyAdmin
Get your Apache/MySQL/mariaDB/PHP ADDONs here from the WAMPServer alternate Repo
-X-X-X- Backup your MySQL databases regularly Here is How dont regret it later! Yes even when developing -X-X-X-
