uber-apache-noob here. I have my own apache server but I have no clue how to run it and where to start. I'd like to run it like http://drakesland.cjb.net and use it for school. Instead of bringing 100 floppy disks to school I could go download my homework from my own DNS server...any help is appreciated
best thing if you want to run yer own server @ home is to get a full package / win32 auto installer... i'm not sure if apache have brought one ouyt with just apache...

but i would personally recommend foxserv - up to you which versionu want to download... if you wantjust basic package download foxserv v.1 - 11 meg... its an auto installer which installs apache + php + mySQL... (all you need is the apache... but the others wont do any harm) - make sure you dont change the default installation path as that will fubar it up...

once installed... just go to start -> all progs -> foxserv -> control panel... a program will start up... click on 'Start Apache'... and your rolling... http://localhost/ i<-- thats the website running of yer comp right now (after installation ;))

to host more stuff / remove stuff... c:\foxserv\www\ <--- its all there :)

theres some other stuff on that foxserv control panel - such as mysql - which you dont really need unless your an advanced web designer who uses backend software...

anyway... thats it your rolling :)

if you want to access the site remotely: http:// your IP/ <--- will take you to it... (computer must be on + online + if firewall punch hole in port 80;)) or you if you have a ip which changes often can run a dns *like* programe like deerfield dns2go http://dns2go.deerfield.com/ - it will give you a URL like.. http://www.DrMetallica.d2g.com so when u installed the programme it sends your IP to there server... and when you enter http://dns2go.deerfield.com/ -> it redirects it to yer pc :) (muct have programme running

that should be just about enough to set up yer own home homework server :p

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
