Im not sure on that but I use apache which is included with my webserver. So yes you have to use it and you need mysql and perl if you plan on using php and cgi/perl.

Blinkster182,

There are quite a few hosting companies out there that provide FREE hosting accounts but please keep in mind that you truly pay for what you get. Most limit your file sizes, bandwidth allowance, and sometimes add their own html to the footer of all your pages.
Most free providers are not setup for CGI or MySQL database so your pages would need to be static.

If you have a steady connection you could also use Apache with Windwos to set up a server on your computer. It's not as safe as a Unix/Linux based server but it'll work. Do a google search for the stuff needed to host your own...there are tons of pages out there. If you look at http://www.theprometheusproject.org this is a Apache server I set up on an apache machine

You can use a preconfigured setup such as Apache2triad. It automatically installs and configures Apache 2, php, mysql, a mailserver and ftp server. Excellent package.

Either just simply give them the URL, or if you are seeing the page at http://localhost or http://127.0.0.1 then you need to 1) get a dynamic address, go to http://www.dyndns.org for that, which will resolve a specific address to your system and 2) If you have a router, you need to set persistant port forwarding to forward port 80 (or whatever you changed it to) to your server system at the specified port (80 default)

Good luck!! you learn a lot by hosting your own pages. And, are you on a windows or unix-like system?
