I want to make a small website mainly for citizens of my city. I want to turn my computer itself into a server (as in dedicated Host).
The configuration of the computer would be like 1 GB of RAM, 500 GB Hard Disk (or an external 1 TB Hard disk), Core 2 Duo processor.
I surfed the net to find out something about XAMMP, but didn’t understand it correctly. So is there any software that would automatically turn my computer into a server or web host (what is the right term?) easily and make it eligible for hosting a WordPress blog or even Joomla CMS?
