Archived ⇒ Runnning a server


I was wondering if i could run a server off my 1.1 ghz Destop PC... it is running on 265 mb of ram, and XP.. I have a ADSL connect which has a 256k upload speeed...


Now i also have a router from Netgear will i have to configure anything for me to run the server off my PC?
And last what software should i use... Apacher, MSQL, ..... Ahh..yes would it be best if install Linux, or Windows 2000 instead of using XP?

Thank You for all your help!

It a "depends" kind of answer. It depends on what type of website and how much traffic you are expecting. I assume that you are going to run DragonFly so I would suggest A Linux brand of OS, the latest Apache PHP and MySQL. You can run Apache, PHP and MySQL on a windows box to make installaion easier at it seems you're very new to running a server. But IMHO it will run better on a Linux OS.

I will have a moderate ammount of traffic... but i would prefer to run on a windows machine.. the thing that im worried about is my router! SInce i tried Apache once... and my firewall *software* was creating problems.. i got rid of it.. but stilll the same results. So i was wondering if my router would cause any confliction issues? But for sure i can DL Apache, and MYSQL ? And they SHOULD work?

Thank YOu In Advance
