Setting up a small home server?

I was wondering, how to setup a good home server. I need php, mySQL, Apache, PERL (possibly) and ASP would be nice. I run a Windows XP Home Edition on a 1 Ghz Celeron processor (im ashamed), 128mb SDRAM, ADSL connection with 600k connection speed, not sure what the upload rate is. I would need everything setup, FTP access, a control panel, DNS, domain. I was wondering if there was a COMPLETE guide on doing all this.

Plus SSL would be nice too

I'm the last person anyone would expect to say this but.... you should just get hold of another box and install.... LINUX. Most of the major linux distro's these days come w/ all the stuff you want, free.

For ASP on Linux, check out ChiliSoft.

yup - if you want it as 'a server', then ideally you should get another box. You don't wanna start bogging down your workstation with all that junk.

Or if you really wanted to practice with it before buying another machine or building another machine you could always put it on a different partition on that same machine you have now... that way if you dont like it, zap it..

My recomendation if you're just starting out with Linux then I recomend using something like mandrake, it's pretty user friendly..

Go to the electronics store, if you dont want to buy another computer.. buy a small hard drive, and install linux on that.

what about running IIS under Windows XP Home, how could I do it without downloading or installing a new OS?

Well.. to get everything you want without having to install everything custom, I would recomend like stumpy said <and he's right, he really is the last person to recomend using LINUX> because it all comes pre packaged and configured... but you COULD install IIS on windows XP, dont know if it would run on XP Home edition or not though... but why install IIS if you're going to use apache??

And also, if you're going to build a machine that will do all of that and you want to do it with Windows based environment, then I would recomend using windows2k server or equivelient version of NT3.X/NT4 unless you want to install seperate daemons for each of those aspects... you can't install a domain server on anything other than NT that I know of <Anyone else, please correct me if I'm wrong > and I don't know of a way to install a DNS service on anything but NT or win2k server... I have pro and that service isnt an option for me <I dont think anyway.. havent looked since I have my own DNS server on my Linux box..

and as for the domain, you just need to purchase a domain name if you are wanting to host your own site and have someone dns it to your IP at home.. if you have a dynamic <always changing> IP and not a static <never changes> then I would recomend using someone like dyndns.org for your DNSing, as they have many different clients you can use to automatically update your ip with the dns servers, and also, you only have to register once for lifetime support for that domain. So no MRC

I would rather have ASP than PHP, but I dont know if you can run ASP under Apache...I run Apache using php/mySQL but Apache is Linux even though I run it under windows so it is all quite weird :S

FYI.. right now I have this running on my linux machine:

1.3ghz AMD, 512mb ddr.. built in lan and video, dont care about sound, dont use the sound..

Its running apache 1.3.27, php version 4.3.2-RC1.


The modules I have enabled for PHP are: PERL, vpopmail, ctype, imap, & mysql

Also running on this machine is my mail server <both pop and imap supported> with relaying disabled.. vpopmail for authentication through pop for smtpd access, mysql server, proFTP server, ssh, Samba filesharing server, and squid proxyserver <dnscaching>

if I wanted to I could also enable DHCP, but I have that through my router

the ASP isnt working on my home server but the PHP, mySQL and PERL are so Ill stick with those for the moment...I don't want my home PC to be accessable by hackers as I dont even have a firewall or an IP scanner so my PC is a sitting duck to anyone who can gain access.

No.. I'm saying you could visit my server and access email off of it if you typed in the url to my webpage.. www.nitwitz.org <-- that's my linux box.. I have my domain pointing to my ip at home which is the ip to my server.. I could always just turn off the dnsing and close port 80 and the other ports that I have open on my router and only the internal people on my network could see it then..
