    You could use No-IP.Org's service and then install Apache for PHP on your server.

    Yup No-IP is the best one of Them all. I use it, no problem whatsoever.
    And only takes a minute or two to setup.

    k so i decided i would try Abyss Web Server, i moved my files into there and tested them using my local ip (http://127.0.0.1:9999/) and it all worked fine. so now i want other to see it but when i go to get my ip (i went to 2 places www.ipchicken.com and www.whatismyip.com) its comes up with to different ips... so i tried them both and in IE it comes up with
    Forbidden
    You were denied access because:
    Access denied by access control list.
    any idea how i can solve this problem

    im not sure i understand but. . .
    i think port 9999 is the default admin ConsolePort, and is password protected, you should have the listening port 80 unless you want people to use a different port, 80 is the default port when you open a website from a browser to "view" the webpages
    like when you connect to say http://www.google.com you're actually connecting to http://www.google.com:80
    if you forgot your password or messed up your settings you can edit abyss.conf in notepad

    PS You might want to use a different admin port now

    Your IP is what ipconfig /all at a command prompt says it is, not what some website sees. If you have a good firewall with stealth enabled, the site will only see your ISP's proxy. Also, you don't need to install programs to run a webserver, it is included in every build of windows starting at least with win95. In any NT/XP system, just install frontpage and IIS and configure it to use the PHP extensions.
