server software

I have created a dual OS system with XP and Fedora. I want to use the box as a linux server for a new website that I am going to create for a very small business. I need to know what addtional software/downloads I will need to be able to create my website. I am not very tech savy, but can follow instructions fairly well.

You'll probably have the programs that you need already installed. At the least you'll want Apache install which is the webserver. Scripting and database will most likely be PHP and MySQL, respectively. Again, these are already likely installed.

You could also try xampp for Linux. It's a full package with MySql, PHP, Apache...and more.

Easy to install, plus easy to get up and running using a GUI. (MyAdmin)

More info plus download here:
