Apple Computer begins beta testing a personal Web server for publishing text and multimedia content onto the Internet and corporate intranets.

Apple Computer (AAPL) today began beta testing a personal Web server for publishing text and multimedia content onto the Internet and corporate intranets.

The Web server software, licensed from Maxum Development, is targeted at small businesses, schools, and graphic designers that use networked Macintosh systems and other Mac OS-compatible machines and are looking for tools to publish text, video, and audio without dedicating a separate computer to the job, the company said.

The software gives users the option of running small Web sites on their Mac for pretesting Web pages before submitting them to a dedicated server. While pricing and a formal launch date for the product are not yet set, Apple said a free beta version is now available and soon will be accessible for download from the AppleNet Web site.
