Running your own PostNuke webserver from home

Contributed by on Dec 17, 2001 - 11:38 PM

I would first like to extend thanks to the POSTNuke community. I also need to ask help from the community in determining what the server can handle. I need help setting up MAIL service, but that's another story...

Please goto the site and browse around post comments, and please vote on the poll, if possible leave a comment from where you are located and how it is running in the poll area. Don't sign up for an account yet, since I don't have a mail server working it won't email your password to you or throw an error. However, the site is setup to take anonymous content, and anonymous posting in the forums. I am currently working on a tutorial on setting up a home server based on LINUX and running PostNuke.

The benefits of running your own web server from home are that even if you have a small hard drive like 6GB that is more than what most hosting providers will give you, and if you have a broadband connection (DSL or cable) you don't have a bandwidth cap, plus you have total control of your web server, however you are responsible if any problems arise and it is up to you to fix it. Looking forward to anyone who helps out and thanks in advance.
