Install Linux and get APACHE running on it.
Why not start off with something a bit more solid?
This may be the wrong forum for this post, so please redirect me if it is. My question is this... can I add an older PC to my home network and use it to serve a small website? Several local community groups I work with could benefit from having a few pages of web info, which are updated infrequently and would get maybe 500 hits a month max ... but the average cost of an ISP here in the Great White North is about $200 per year, equal to the entire budget of some of these groups!
However, I am on a DSL line, with a home network, and have a couple of older machines in storage. So I am wondering whether I could fire one of them up, get some domains assigned, and get the job done.
Any advice on this, including "don't go there, fool", will be welcome.
PS I am a Windows guy, if that matters.
