How to build a Web Server

Last Modified: 2019-11-18
I have a high school nephew who wants to build a web server and play with HTML, so he says; being the only "computer guy" in the family, I got "voluntold" that it would be a nice Christmas gift to share my talents. Teenagers being the mischievous bunch they are, I have my concerns and I am not a web developer, Intranet or Internet; my talents are in databases and query coding. None the less I have begun research and need to be pointed in the right direction. I was thinking Intranet not Internet; let them play with it on their own network, so when "Ralph" breaks the internet it will only be theirs.

So how does my Christmas outlook look?
