The link in post #2 is to a good, but very basic, article on the subject, so you definitely read that, but it may not be anywhere near as much as you need to know.
Is it possible to get more details of what you are trying to do:
- is this internet facing, or just for usage on an internal network?
- is this on a server to which you have local access or is a remotely hosted box?
- do you intend hosting a few simple static pages or is your intention to host something more dynamic?
- is there just one source for the content, or is this a co-operative effort?
- is the appearance of the site of a high level of importance?
I'm sure that is not all that you could usefully tell us, but it will enable us to make sure that we are taking you on a path that is appropriate for you.
