I am new to this and have recently decided to get a windows 2003 web server on a rental deal from my ISP.
I'm trying to setup the server to allow me to get used to hosting both simple and database driven websites.
My server has been running fine for over 4 months with the simple stuff I have thrown at it and it's now time to get my head around websites with databases.
I have got hold of PHP and MySql and I'm now stuck. I want to be able to host PHP pages and also setup databases for a number of different websites, each website having it's own individual user that can only use their allocated database.
I have decided to stop trying to play & learn my way through this and instead want to get the advice I need to make sure I setup my server correctly.
Where do I start?
What do I need? It has to be free.
