Best Distro For A HTTP Server


I am wanting to start using an old computer I have as a webserver, just so it dosen't sit there doing nothing. I was wondering what is the best distro for doing this. I assume the best software is apache so if you know of a tutorial for setting this up somewhere that would be great. Thanks.

Any distro will work. Use the one your most familiar with and don't install X, which is a wasteful resource on such servers..

there is no best. anything that will run on it, will run apache fine. depends how old "old" is though...

the best tuorial is the apache documentation.. that's what it's there for.
