Does anyone here know how to setup Website Pro 2.0 to run at my home?
What I mean is, show me how to set Website Pro up to display a webpage when I get online.

I already have a virtual account with my ISP "viper.kayhay.com"
and I have things on that page....do I have to delete them over on the server side?
Pls. send me some answers ASAP.

thanks

Configure your web-browser to
automatically load a "home" page.
Supply the URL of the page which
you want it to automatically fetch.

I meant to have an acutal web-server on my computer...not just for me to see.
For the world to see....when I get online that is....

First, you need to give "directions" for people,
namely, the URL for your web-server.
If you have a "full-time" (7days/24hour) connection
to the Internet, this is simple -- your ISP will
assign you an IP-address for your computer,
and will "associate" your URL ("viper.kayhay.com")
with that IP-address.

Then, you need to put HTML files, e.g., 'index.html',
into the "root" directory which you've defined
as the "home" directory inside Website Pro.
(This probably is *NOT* the "root" directory of your C: drive!)
