Click on my "www" button below.
I am running Apache on a Pentium 100 with 64 MB RAM.
Reading the Apache documentation and installing Apache on a running Linux system would give you a web server.

Personally I would wait until you are more knowledgeable before offering your services to other people, especially if you want to charge them... Setting up a hosting operation is a major undertaking, you should use proper servers in a colocated facility with a good pipe, and apart from anything else you will have to know how to secure your boxes or else you'll get hacked in about 5 minutes.

Hi,

I want just to setup initially for me to use it.

Tell me. Does the machine where linux is must be switched on all the time or is it any process that run in the background even when machine is switched off (seems impossible to me). If the machine have to be on all the time 24 over 24 hours isnt any possibility of damaging the computer and provoquing fire?

Can you tell me what i need apart to linux?
thanks
Polo

Yes the machine does have to be switched on all the time. It shouldn't catch on fire if it is properly set up and cooled, but you never know, that's just another reason if you want to run your own sites you should rent a server from a proper host.
