Changing A Home PC (high specs) To A Web Server
Posted on 2005-04-21
Thank you in advance to all who will contribute to this question.
If I had a personal computer with high specs (memory, hard drive, etc) and wanted to change this to a server on which i'll host my website for a small traffic at any one time, is it possible? I mean a Server with the common features offered by most hosting providers - with php, ssl, etc. If achievable, can anyone please tell me -
* What best softwares, OS's, additional hardware I will need to accomplish this. Will I need an expert service to do this?
* If possible, please post any links to additional resources which might be helpful.
PS: I simply want to ascertain if it's achievable with an ordinary PC serving the small size WWW users.
Thanks, all comments are welcomed.
