Webserver Setup

This set of Web pages is a "diary" of my attempt (successful, I hope) to set up a Webserver, from scratch. You're welcome to follow along, to offer suggestions, to share in my triumphs, to laugh derisively at my mistakes.

I figure that these Web pages may be of interest to you if you're thinking of setting up your own Webserver, if you're curious about what's involved in becoming a Web service provider, or if you're having a slow day and have nothing better to do.

To put this venture in context, you might want to take a quick look at an overview of my plans for setting up the WebFeats server. And if you're dying to learn more about me, I've thrown together a brief bio for your reading pleasure.

I'll post each entry as a separate Web page, to make it easier for you track what you've read and what you haven't.
