    Mine is a an old DELL Desktop PC with some extra memory installed.

    933Mhz
    384Mb RAM
    20Gb HDD

    It's only serving 2 users with IMAP and Webmail so doesn't need much beefcake.

    I am using an old Gateway P2, 350Mhz with 256MB of RAM, 6GB and 12GB harddrives. I am currently hosting three different low-traffic sites (about 10-15 unique visitors a day, combined), email, ssh and ftp. Nothing major, but it seems to do the job just fine!

    I haven't determined what the max load would be on this server, but I am sure it still has plenty of room!

    I have an old Dell Poweredge 2550 system (PIII 866, 512Mb memory) and a Sun Netra that I picked up from a company that was going out of business in a "work for equipment" deal. I haven't really messed with the Netra yet, though.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    i am using a pentium 3 500 Mhz, 192 RAM, 4 gig hd. It seems to run just fine now, but my site doesn't even get 10 hits a day. I really should figure out the load it can take. I expect my site will, once I have it fully operational, to be getting more like 20-50 hits a day.

    Does apache automatically keep track of hit information? Is there a program I can get to do that for me in case it doesnt?

    thanks!

    Yeah, apache keeps both access and error logs by default. There are log analyzer programs that will read and parse your access log to give you more meaningful information.

    I would reccommend awstats as a very solid and easy to configure log analyzer...

    Cool. I was worrying that nobody uses old boards anymore. This gives me a bit of hope. By the way is that the highest CPU you're board can take. Because if it is a CyrixMX pr200 would be much better for a server. This is because Cyrix beat Intel with it's PR200 and were know for being good for business machines. But they had a low FPU(which is used in gaming) which made Intel more popular.
