i found some source code for VB on that Wink here is the compiled version, just put all the files in the "WWWRoot" folder, and tell people to go to "http://yourip/" or "http://yourip/page" and you can host dloads too, its pretty cool. however i wouldnt suggest giving it to public unless you have firewall, etc and your ip is constant (mine used to be, but it changes alot now lol)

Can't find file right now. ill edit and upload it later Wink

Apache http://httpd.apache.org/ For the server

Great Things to add to it
Php http://www.php.net
MySql (w/PHP) http://www.mysql.com

Also get an ip redirect (free) from a site
(www.mine.nu is good)

do I need to already have something? like a domain? cause during setup it asked for domain name and address and everything.
And what is the IP redirection for?

IP redirection is for getting a domain name to point to your website. The only way the internet recognizes you is by an IP address, and unless you want your visitors to have to type in a bunch of numbers every time they want to see the page, you'll need a domain name instead. Also, it'd probably be a good idea to get a program to update your IP redirect whenever your IP changes. (my changes quite often and so I made use of dyndns.org (redirection service) and dynSite (IP update program).

Using Apache, do I need a webhost anymore?

Meh. It's really up to you. With apache, you're using your own computer as a webhost. So if you want it to be available all the time, you must have it on (and connected to the internet) all the time. And if you're hosting large files that are being accessed often it could really kill your bandwidth so hopefully you have an unlimited bandwidth plan with your ISP.
