    Hosting website in Ubuntu Server

    I was wondering... is it possible to setup a website in a Ubuntu server box? I know you can use the HFS ~ Http File Server with WINE on a Ubuntu machine that has a GUI. However, I have no idea how that could be a possibility in a server installation. Any help is appreciated (tutorial, link to tutorial, etc). Thanks in advance.

    hmmm would that be it? how would I set up the server itself, would the apache tutorial help too? I found this and this awhile back, though I really didn't think it addressed the problem, or that it was recent enough (5.10? 8.04?). Do you think these are right and/or do you know one that is more recent (jaunty, 9.04)?

    ok...if you are setting up a server than yes you will need apache2.
    sudo apt-get install apache2...ubuntu server will come with this.
    then depending on what you are using the server for you will download other applications. You will need to learn about port forwarding also.

    Whahaha awesome I think that's what I was looking for. For this purpose, what would I need? Apache only, or mysql and php + others? Also, for this purpose I'm guessing I will only need to check the chapter 9 - web servers, right? Thanks for pointing to that page mate!
