does anybody know what a good free web server is? i have tried a few but i want to know which one is the best. thanks.
P.S.-ftp servers as in ftp.????????.?????.com
One of the websites I have I run on Apache I also run my Wife's/daughter's/son's websites on IIS (built-in to Win2K) but of course if your going to be getting lots of hits at the same time you will need Advanced Server or full-blown IIS to allow all the hits.
Apache for Windows
CPU: Intel-compatible 486 or above
Disk: 100MB free disk storage
Internet Connection: "always-on" (DSL recommended)
Memory: 32MB required (64MB recommended)
Operating Systems: Microsoft Windows 95, 98, 98SE, ME, NT4.0 with SP 3, or Windows 2000

Web server for local development? Or web server for web serving?
For just local development, you can run Personal Web Server (PWS) in 98, though you need TCP/IP, so you may need a live connection (network or dial-up). It should be free, or was the last time I checked. There are others...
For web serving, it will depend on the server OS. NT >>> IIS. Unix >>> Apache. Apache is free, IIS is not. Apache exists for NT, but has not been fully optimized.
BTW, there are more Apache web servers than any other.
SimpleServerWWW is 191K.
Runs very smooth on my comp.
It even MIME file typing, CGI, common log format, and multi-hosting.

I don't understand what you are asking about FTP servers... but as far as free webservers and simplicity go... I vote for that latest response as well... I used to run that on my WIN98SE machine with no problems. AnalogX makes good, free, stuff.
i found a server---dk3.com it works ok but it takes for ever from the point of finishing the upload of my file to when one can actually see them on the internet.
i am looking for a site--similar to dk3.com.
