Question Fedora web server


Hello guys! I'm just wondering how to configure fedora 10 as a web sever since I'm a newbie in linux. I'm really having a hard time how to access it using its IP address since i don't have a domain name yet. I'd like to make sure that i could be able to access it first before i register a domain. Any help is greatly appreciated!

don't use fedora as a server, it's a testing distro. don't use an obsolete version of fedora as a server, that's even worse!

Download CentOS 6 and just install the apache server during the install. Then configure /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf as appropriate and youw website typically found at /var/www/html/ then oen port 80 on the firewall using system-config-firewall and for the server that's largely done.
