My friend wanted to set up a Sharepoint server so that we can communicate for our pre-university school project but I am using Linux and cannot run it with Wine and it would still cause complications so if I can understand how to use Alfresco instead, I can get my team to use it instead of Sharepoint but the problem is I have no idea how to start. (I dual boot with Windows on my home computer but for my school laptop I can only have Linux). I suck at networking in general which just makes things worse but if someone can help me "sync" our files or however this works.

I am extremely lost. I watched a video and it only showed different introductory aspects of the software without saying how to create accounts, manage them, etc. Please tell me how to create the "team" and each user's accounts.

What I do know (or think) is that this runs via the web browser strictly. Before trying anything on my Linux computer, I decided to test this out on my Windows one and I installed 3.4.c and I'm guessing http://127.0.0.1:8080/alfresco/faces/jsp/dashboards/container.jsp is the home page. All we really need is to have our Java source code in one synced  private place. (to those not in our group). As you can probably see, I am very lost and confused and I need a strong push forward in order to begin using Alfresco.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
