Setting up a server

by amanpoke » Wed Nov 12, 2014 4:26 am

I was looking to setup a server at my home itself. I arranged for an static IP address for my house and I had a spare system which I am not using these days.

It has got 4 GB Ram, 1 TB harddisk and 3.4 Ghz processor.

I want to host my email address and my personal blog on it. But unable to setup it.

Can someone provide me an idea of what I need to do next so that it can be started as a production server.

XAMPP, with a "secure" config, can be used in a production environment..but it's not recommended. XAMPP is just a stack of software for easy deploying a fully developer friendly environment.

With IIS you can gain performance, cause of it's caching mechanisms. I would install MySQL, PHP without any software stack like XAMPP and add the IIS to the Windows Server. Configure everything and you are good to go.

If you don't wont to use IIS or Apache, try to have a look to nginx.
