Sites served from Home
After a couple of years of hosting my sites with various service providers I decided that I would try hosting them from my home server. One of the main factors is that it works out to be a fair amount cheaper, another was that I thought that it would a bit educational. I figured that my home server was on all the time so why not.
There is a stack of information out there on how to do it, so I won’t waste my time by rehashing.
The setup at as follows;
- Windows 2003 Server
- 1740 HighPoint RocketRAID Card with 4 x 640GB WD in RAID 5
- Dynamic DNS – http://www.dyndns.com/
- Web Server – Apache 2
- Mail Server – hMailServer
- FTP Server – Trying FileZilla but not convinced yet so may change
- Torrent – µTorrent – with web client
- PHP 5
- MYSQL 5
