How would you make a computer into a webserver? Could somebody give me a handle on this?

I'd love to have some sort of online database for pictures/files/etc and I am buying a new comp in a few months.

I argue with people on internet message boards.

if you have win2k or winxp pro or any other windows server OS you can use IIS internet information services, an http server. IIS is a windows component that must be installed manually through windows add/ remove windows component.

if you want FTP server use bulletFTP or as MinDFreeZ suggested http://www.guildftpd.com/. if you do not have the OS's listed www.download.com has some free simple web servers you can use. there is a small learning curve in order to set these up.

if you have broadband you should learn to foward ports on a router and firewall. plus you may need to know how to use a DNS updater and DNS service for dynamic IPs.

I do like Inaris idea, but it will be uncharted territory for me on how to go about it, I currently have a Norton firewall on my main PC, but as far as linking through a webserver with a firewall on it, is new to me, If anyone could point in the right direction on this subject, ie; websites, books??, it would be greatful. Thank you in advance for your help and thanks for all of the suggestions.

This is what I use for my firewall/webserver. Works like wonders and is very cheap...
