My webhosting is due this month and I have always wanted to host my own website from my own pc. I am currently running FC4 on the pc that I want to use as the server, and I have a few questions. I did a custom install of my FC4, so I was thinking of re-installing in a server installation. Is this a good choice? Bad? Also I was wondering that if I do decide to server re-install my FC4, will it still be able to function well as a desktop PC? Any other advice or recommendations before I try to turn my old PC into a server?
You don't need to reinstall FC4.
Just install apache, which is the de facto standard for webservers.
If you want PHP and SQL functionality, install php and mysql.
These are all available as RPMs, and there is plenty of documentation.
