Im really really reallly really confused! Plz help me... Heres my problem:
I dont want to buy a web host...So I downloaded apache, php, and mysql. Now I want to get it so not only I can view it... everyone can... I am using windows XP also, not linux... 1. Is it possible? 2. How could I do this if it is...i did not buy a domain, but couldnt I still access it with my IP adress?? If u need it, my IP adress is 192.168.1.104 .
www.hotscripts.com look in the PHP installation tutorials, there are a few wich tell you how ton install a WAMP(windows, apache, php, mysql) server. otherwise, get abyss from www.aprelium.com its easier to use by far than apache. now for the ip, are you sure you have a staic ip? well even if you don't you could try www.no-ip.com or www.dyndns.com which lets you have a personal webserver with a subdomain.

Yeah, my server is going on 127.0.0.1 . I can access it on my computer no matter what Ip I change it to. I do have a linksys router, so im assuming dynamic. My computers IP is 192.168.1.104 , and that works on my computer, then my linksys is 18.104.22.168 , and that worked 4 me, and localhost works, and so does 127.0.0.1 , I think the port my stuff is running on is port 80 . Ill check.
This is what the Abyss Web Server thing says
My ISP is charter, and I just read the papers and stuff, it says Multiple IP: No , Then where it says Network Settings: Dynamic . If I want a static, do I just call them at customer service and ask for a static IP?

I just did something with my router, with forwarding for port 80... COuld sum1 possibly try it again for me, and see if it works? Thanks a bunch!
Okay, I am on broadband, so ill go ahead and call my isp then. Thanks...
Man, my ISP is really confusing! They made me answer all these questions and crap, I guess trying to make sure im not starting up a webserver for a business, and now their making me wait forever just to get the price for a static IP! So, Im just sitting here....waiting....
