    How do I start my own private web sever?

    Hello.
    Do you know how to start your own private web host for home use only?
    I did a google search for it and I got mostly spam, I saw a thread once in here before, and I searched for it and didnt find any thing.

    Could you clarify some more? What exactly do you mean by "home use only"? Like so you can test/develop your websites locally on your machine/Intranet?

    starting your own full time production enviroment server is very easy, but not recomended. the resaons being tht your site will probably very slow because i dobut you have a super super fast connection. and your computer has to be constantly checked for security homes and such. I.E alot of work. hosting is pretty cheap now days as well

    Let's get this thread of of the "Why" questions phase and into the "What" questions

    What OS are you planning to run on that machine?

    Do you want that server to provide server side scripting? If so what kind(s) of server side scripting do you want to be able to use with it?

    Hav you checked out phpdev by firepages ?
    I've got it set up on my development server at home, with Apache(PHP) and IIS(ASP, ColdFusionMX) running happily side-by-side.

    (p.s. Looks like George heard all the whinging 'bout the new smiles )

    I take no responsibility for the above nonsense.

    If all you've ever used is Windows you can stay with that and get your system set up to do what you want but this may be a good time to learn some Linux if you're game. Since you didn't mention ASP, .NET or any other MS technology as a learning goal you don't have to limit yourself that way.

    There is NO reason as to why you should have to use a non Microsoft operating system. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

    If you want to stay with MS OSes that's no problem either. Apache is available for the users of Windows.
