Web server/File Sharing Server


I am new to the Solaris/UNIX enviornment and I was wondering if someone could help me (details please) get Apache web server set up (I guess apache is the best) on my Solaris system. I am running Solaris 8 and I basicly have a "fresh" system running. Have not done anything with it except configure it so I can connect to the internet. Something else I would also like to do is set it up so it can talk to other windows machines. I want to make it a file server for windows so I can transfer files back and forth. I have 2 18gb hard drives on it...plently of space.

Security is very important to me and there will only be 2 or maybe 3 users allowed to connect to the system.

To install apache, either use the the one found on the solaris companion CD, or get it with pgk-get ( You'll find samba there too for your windows transfers.

For the security part, have a look at JASS:
