I am going to build a server and then build my own web page to hose on my own server.
I will most likely use a version of linux on the server and possibly apache for the web building. (did I get that right?)
Honestly I know very little about the requirements for a dedicated server, any suggestions would be helpful. Also if I hosted my own website on my own server what would I need to do as in getting and setting up my domain name, through go daddy or someone like that?
Last question, what is the best way to learn how to use apache or other web building program, is there a book recommended...?
I'm not in a big hurry, I've got some time to learn this which is what I'd like to do.
Would love any suggestions from anyone who has experience in this.
I am currently running linux (ubuntu) on my computers. I've got a little command line experience but no where near where I'd like to be.
