Hi,

I trying to install a web server on my home PC, Apache has been recommended to me. I am currently running windows 98, will Apache work on this OS and can it run multiple websites. I am unsure what version I will need, and would I need something called win32?
My website are static, there's no search faility just basic stuff. Alot of people mention MySQL, that is not appropriate for me - right?

I welcome your advice, and look forward from hearing from you.
regards Mr Athwal

Apache runs fine on Win98. Sets up in no time and can run multiple sites. You can get the win32 version at : http://httpd.apache.org/docs/windows.html
You will not need MySQL unless you need to run MySQL databases.
Good luck.
