Setting up and running a Unix web server is surprisingly easy. Recently, on, I ran across the article Become Your Own Web Host in 75 Steps. Without too much explanation, the article describes how to install FreeBSD, MySQL, PHP, and Apache. Hopefully the following series will expand on that article and go a little deeper.

We will be installing:

* and some other apps helpful to webmasters

Before we start, you'll need

1. 1 blank CD
2. A CD burner
3. A computer with an ethernet card
4. An Internet connection with a static IP address
