Web Site on Windows 7 x64 Bit Machine

I want to setup a website and a FTP website on a Windows 7 x64 machine, can someone walk me through the steps of doing so? I would assume I do this with IIS but if there is another program then whatever works.

Also, it would be nice to setup another site for remoting to a couple of computers, like Remote Web Website on Windows server machines, but it would need to be on Windows 7, is that possible?

Why use Apache when IIS comes with the host......?

Create a new Website
http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/762/create-a-web-site/

Open Firewalls for port80 and port 21 (assuming ftp is default 21).
Test http://localhost
Test ftp://localhost

NOTE: Once this is setup and working you will want to open the NAT  (Application Port Mapping) on your router configuration to allow port 80 and/or 21 through the router to point to your Internal IP on your Web Sever.

"Like Remote Web Website " Remote sites is a part of RD Services in Windows Server 2008 (R2). This unfortunately is not possible...

Apache has been the most popular web server on the Internet since April 1996.
50 million websites use apache compared to 30 million using IIS.............

It is also not .net compliant, open source etc...  Considering the user sounds like a new developer. IIS would suffice.

Easier to install.
Easier to configure.
Easier to manage.

ok, I could get to the iistart page via a web browser. How do reroute it to another website, instead of the default website?

What do mean?  
You could use the default site and change the physical directory path from IIS Manager.

Right click on the site, chose Advanced properties and configure the site.

cheers,
