A bit off topic but cant find a relevant group ...

I have a spare pc at home that I want to setup as a web server.

I am only fussed about myself being able to access across my home network,
and I only want to try it as its something to do and new to learn.

Can anyone point me in the right direction ?

I use Bullet FTP server to create an FTP server which is dead easy, is there
an equivalent app that does tha same for a web server for example ?


just wanting to learn something different

Reasonably on topic IMHO :-)

Download phphome (google for it or go to
http://sourceforge.net/projects/phphome/ ).

Takes about 10 minutes to install and leaves you with an apache server, php
and mysql, all preconfigured.

Get the latest 1.3 version of apache and install it. Just about
that simple. Now just as easy as the other simple web servers.
