Well, if you choose to go with apache in which I presume since you named your thread title "apache help", have you read any of their docs on www.apache.org
They are really straight forward and usually easy to understand. What distro are you using on your server? Most likely it might already have Apache installed ready to be used.

You have to provide more details, were not really here to write novels or books, but to answer specific questions on specific problems. Your question is way to broad to help you out really.

Another thing you might consider is getting a book on apache, which would explain step by step of setting it up and administering it.

Its pretty straight forward really. Even if you read the /etc/apache/httpd.conf file to configure your particular webserver, even it has comments and such that make it easy to understand what and how to configure.

If you don't understand anything, feel free to ask away.

Well you need to specify with your domain registrar who or what the DNS servers are so it knows how to find your server where its being hosted on.

If you don't have your own DNS setup to redirect traffic looking for your domain to your IP address of your server, then you'll have to set one up or you can go with services that do this for you with maybe like dyndns.org or zoneedit.com

Do you have a static IP or dynamic? Do you have a DNS server you've setup or not?

You may want to read some of the docs on www.tldp.org , especially any of the Apache, DNS and Bind howto's there.

If your using a Dynamic IP that can change, your best option is to use some service like dyndns.org or zoneedit.com that will provide your DNS for you and keep up with a changing IP.

Try reading up on those sites about setting that portion up as they will also explain what DNS servers you should specify with your registrar as well, where you registered your domain at.
