Hi,

I would like to turn my home desktop computer into a WebServer.

In short, I would like the ability to view a select number of folders on my home computer through a web browser - very similar to Drop Box and other online cloud storage.

Furthermore, I would like the ability to connect to it via SFTP if required.

Any suggestions how I could go about this?

Thanks
A.

Download apache and install it.

Download XAMPP from www.apachefriends.org. It has inbuilt webserver, ftp server, etc. You will also need a static ip to access your local computer. If you dont want to go for static ip then you would require dynDNS / no-ip.com like service which will give you a sub-domain which will point to your desktop machine.
