Macos Server Mojave [VERIFIED] Download
Apple used to have a fantastic application called OSX Server (now called MacOS Server) which allowed you to run a full server from any OSX computer. A server can allow you share files, run your own email or web server, remotely connect in to your office etc. OSX server was particularly powerful running on a Mac Mini. With OSX Mojave 10.14 Apple killed off OSX server, but it is still possible to download an older version from Apple that still works. You need need to purchase OSX server on a newer Mac running Catalina, then go to an older Mac signed in using the same Apple ID and grab the older version of Server from the Purchase history.

Old versions of server are actually easier. You can download OS X Lion Server: -x-lion-server/id444376097?mt=12 or macOS Server: -server/id883878097?mt=12 and most versions are available on the developer portal at
Some users found that when they try to install a macOS update with the update installer from App Store, it just showed the error message "the recovery server could not be contacted". However, after downloading a full version of the macOS installer, the installer can run without any error. Here is how you can get a full version of the macOS Catalina update.
Once the downloading process has begun, you should be able to see the progress of the download in the Launchpad. Downloading the installation package of macOS Sierra may be a time-consuming process (the slow downloading of macOS Sierra is a common issue). Sometimes, temporary changing the DNS settings in your network configuration may help you to increase the download speed. Attempt using 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52 or 184.108.40.206 DNS servers on your machine. If this method does not increase the download speed, left click the Downloading icon to pause your download. Then left click the icon once more to resume the download. After resuming the download of a file, the download speed increases for the appropriate period of time.
Now that your bootable ISO image with the macOS installer is ready, you should prepare your ESXi host for the installation of macOS as a guest OS on VMs. You need to enable SSH access, download the patch, copy the patch to the file system of the ESXi server, and patch the ESXi server.
After downloading the patch, copy the patch files to the datastore on ESXi. You can use WinSCP, which supports the transfer of files over SSH by using SFTP, SCP, WebDAV, or S3 protocols (in Linux you can use the equivalent software). WinSCP has a user-friendly graphical user interface (GUI), and consists of two main panels. Copy the unlocker files from your local directory to your datastore on the ESXi server. In this example the unlocker patch and the macOS Sierra installation ISO image (Sierra.iso) were created beforehand, and are placed in C:\Virtual\images_MacOS for convenience. The patch is copied to /vmfs/volumes/datastore1 on the ESXi server. Sierra.iso would be copied to the datastore40. Later, you can mount the ISO image from the datastore to the virtual DVD drive of the virtual machine.
After installing, and then downloading again, I am greeted with the upgrade warning. I have only installed the 10.6 version of the server in an environment for production, nothing is newer.

macOS Server will now appear and you are able to download an older version that will work with your previous OS. Apple was once home to an excellent application known as OSX Server that let you run a fully-functional server on the OSX computer.
If it happens to be a new version of the Mac operating system and you are attempting to download it just after release there could be problems due to so many people accessing the servers at the same time.
Fetchmail is useful for people who have many other POP or IMAP servers that they read mail from. Fetchmail can be set up to check these other POP or IMAP servers periodically and download all that mail, consolidating them into one single mailbox on the local server. [Details]
What Are The Alternatives?In the support document, Apple provides three alternatives for each service that will be deprecated. Most of those services are open source and in many cases are what savvy macOS Server admins have been using anyway. For those who are just thinking about setting up their own servers, however, the thought of downloading, configuring, and maintaining a grocery list of open source apps could be daunting.
As with previous releases, high traffic and an overwhelming number of update requests on the Apple server may cause the process to be quite frustrating, attributed by slow download speeds, frequent disconnections, and inability to resume the download.
