    The default dir for allocating files on your webserver is /var/www/htdocs or /var/www.

    Look in your server's httpd.conf for the entry that says 'document root', that tells you where to put the files.

    Make sure they're readable by the user that apache runs as (either apache or httpd depending on your distro).

    Test by connecting to the server and browsing the pages. You dont need to restart your apache service unless you change the httpd.conf file.

    If your web server is run by your ISP, then it should be even easier than this - you'll probably use ftp to upload them, it'll take care of permissions itself.

    Yes, use one of the free SQL servers; MySQL and postgresql are the popular ones.

    Yep, it is possible:)

    You will probably want to start getting familiar with php, as that will be the mechanism that you will be able to retrieve data from the database and display it on your website. I am pretty sure that php will connect to an MS Access database, but I have always found it easiest to just use mysql...

    Is your firewall configured to allow port 80? And is your router forwarding port 80? That could explain your friend not being able to see it. Also, go to www.dyndns.com (I think) to register a free host name for your site.
