    Web Server on Winxp


    Newbie question!?!

    I've got BroadBand ( always on internet connection ) and i want to set up my own internet http server. I've got an FTP client running at the moment, but i want a full HTTP server.

    I don't want to change to UNIX or Linux, just stay with WinXP.

    What software do i need to install, and how do i go about setting all this up?!

    Dave.

    for windows users that dont care about security and want click-and-work-or-not configuration:
    go to
    control panel / software / windows setup
    install web-services (iis)


    but this is not even 10% of the work to successfully run a web server. for howto, go to www.microsoft.com

    i prefer apache, but it requires you getting deep into system / server configuration not to f it up... depends on what your needs are.
