Setting up personal web server on XP



are there any good tutorials on how to do this?


No. and don't. IIS is your webserver now. Just make sure you at least run IISLockDown to prevent yourself becoming a CodeRed server. Check out and scroll down to clutch's post there for several resources.

Everyone bitches about IIS being a horrid security hole, but if you manage it right, it's a great webserver. (Note: I can't manage it "right" yet, but I'm at least not serving a lil' code red =) but I'll still do what I can if you have more questions about it.


You could always give Apache a try if you don't mind editing a text file to configure it. Although it's still not as stable on Windows as on *nix, I've been running it for 3 years and have never had any problems with it.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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!
