    It is an open source webserver that is used by about 60% of the internet.

    It is a cheap way to setup your own internet site from your home if you have the bandwidth

    http://apache.org/

    get yourself an old computer, stick a linux/bsd on it and with this you have your own webserver.

    yes there are projects which will add extras to your server

    HTTP Server
    Ant
    APR
    Avalon
    Cocoon
    Commons
    DB
    Incubator
    Jakarta
    James
    Maven
    Perl
    PHP
    TCL
    Web Services
    XML
    Conferences
    Foundation

    there is even a new one that can help stop dos attacks. pretty sweet since it is free.

    not sure about sql but i know there is a free version out there somewhere.

    mysql I think it is called

    edit: no programming required but you do have to edit the conf file which is a text file with loads of options on. that can be a big pain if you have never done it before.

    It is designed to be run in linux

    but they do a windows verison as well.

    but a bsd is probably the better option since they are very secure.

    to edit the configure file all you have to do is read the instructions that come with it.

    It will give to a brief description of the thing to edit and what options you have.

    If you read it it is easy. just use google to try to figure out things you do not understand.
