Which Distro Should I Use For Webhosting
Im looking to turn my old PC into a Linux webserver. I need one with MySQL and PHP5,which distro do you recomend for hosting such a server?

Any one you want.

Seriously. For such a common application, almost any distro you try will have easy* access to the programs you need. some may not ship with PHP5, but it's generally available in a repo, or you can install from source.

*"easy" is a purely subjective term.

truthfatal is generally right - but there might be better and worse choices nonetheless because of one thing you mentioned: How old exactly is "old"? Could you give any specs? How much experience do you have with Linux in general?
