Thank you for all that info. Now, I have a question; If I install Apche, why do
I need IIS7? or do I still need to have IIS7 in oder to run Apache?
Also I was reading the Apache installation for Windows and here is something I
don't know how to manage:
Run the Apache .msi file you downloaded above. The installation will ask you
for these things:
1. Network Domain. Enter the DNS domain in which your server is or will be
registered in. For example, if your server's full DNS name is
server.mydomain.net, you would type mydomain.net here.
2. Server Name. Your server's full DNS name. From the example above, you would
type server.mydomain.net here.
3. Administrator's Email Address. Enter the server administrator's or
webmaster's email address here. This address will be displayed along with error
messages to the client by default.
4. For whom to install Apache Select for All Users, on Port 80, as a Service -
Recommended if you'd like your new Apache to listen at port 80 for incoming
traffic. It will run as a service (that is, Apache will run even if no one is
logged in on the server at the moment) Select only for the Current User, on
Port 8080, when started Manually if you'd like to install Apache for your
personal experimenting or if you already have another WWW server running on
5. The installation type. Select Typical for everything except the source code
and libraries for module development. With Custom you can specify what to
install. A full install will require about 13 megabytes of free disk space.
This does not include the size of your web site(s).
Question 1: This is my personal computer, how do I know the DNS domain in
which my server is?
Q 2: what is my server's full DNS name?
Q3: I sthis an email addres from the computer server or from my ISP?
Q4: I guess here I should do this: for the Current User, on Port 8080,
Q5: I usually like to install Full packages.
Pardon my inorance, I am trying to learn here.
Then, I had this problem before : corruction of my ISS7, the first time I
installed Vista, I belive back in february, I runned into this problem too. For
some reason my IIS7 got corruct it (don't have a clue why) and I had the same
problem, I was not able to reinstall IIS7 without having to format my computer
from scratch (pain in the bud). Is there any way that I can unistall IIS and
reinstall it without having to reformat my whole computer?
I am really confuse here, I have been working a couple of years now as a web
designer and this is still a black whole for me. I really want to get a clear
understanding of how server work and how configure then. I really apreciate the
help to get me to a new level of understanding.
All I see at this point is the need to reconfigure my computer, but I will
wait untill some responses to this Post to make a desicion.
Thanks once again.
