Miscellaneous: Advice for New Web Infrastructure for Small Bizstarted by Fp on Apr 2, 2004 — RSS Feed
We are a small company in a non-IT industry with little in-house IT experience. We intends to set up an intranet and subsequently an internet web site.
My question is what would be a good set of software I should have on a new Apple Xserve Panther platform?
Would it be a WebObjects or a Macromedia or other platform. My constraints are cost and ability to find freelance resource for the application development.
Unless I misundertstand your question, everything you need is already built-in.
Go to System Preferences
Click on the 'Sharing' icon
Check 'Personal Web Sharing'
Put your HTML files into the Library: WebServer: Documents folder
That makes all your pages accessible on an internal network using the address <computer name>.local/index.html
To publish on the Web is a matter of choosing 'Internet' in the same control panel and switching it on - having connected on a suitable line.
OSX is running the industry standard Apache server out of the box and getting freelancers to do the fine tuning won't be a problem.
