Mac OS X Server 10.5.2 Combo Update. Mac OS X Server 10.5.2 is Leopard Server and is ancient and will not run on Macs made for the last eight years. The server software I mentioned for El Capitan 10.11.6 and also Sierra is Server.app 5.2 and is totally different from the ancient Mac OS X Server software. MacPorts also has a nice port for the VPN server, which though not talked about, is right there in the base OS just waiting for you to configure it. All very sad, really-I was always ambivilent of Server since 10.7, but it's still a tragic end. Macs are unique because, among other things, they can run server services.
Learn about current and future support
Apple continues to develop and support macOS Server, which includes Open Directory, Profile Manager, and Xsan management. The most popular server features—Caching Server, File Sharing Server, and Time Machine Server are bundled with every installation of macOS High Sierra and later, so that even more customers have access to these essential services at no extra cost.
Starting with macOS Server 5.7.1, Apple no longer bundles open source services such as Calendar Server, Contacts Server, the Mail Server, DNS, DHCP, VPN Server, and Websites with macOS Server. Customers can get these same services directly from open-source providers. Mac os sierra free download. This way, macOS Server customers can install the most secure and up-to-date services as soon as they’re available.
Apple has published documentation to help with this transition.
