    Does anyone use or know about FoxServ, PHP Home or Fireserv? Are they any good? They all seem to have Apache, PHP, MySQL..all the things I hear are good . I don't know if i need all of them or just Apache or what. Basically I want to upload a hell of a large size of files onto the internet which no hosting pack would ever offer so i figured i will have to do it on my own server. What software do i need for this?

    I PM'd haxor41789 so as not to waste your time but i have been having a bit of trouble.

    Need more info, such as OS, connection type, if you're running a home network, CPU speed, amount of RAM, access speed of hard drive (ms or RPM), etc.

    Thanks for the offer but i'm talking about 17GB and growing. I only need the server to be up temporarily at the beginning so i think that hosting from my computer would be a good idea.

    I am trying to create a site that streams video.

    (A question on an unrelated subject.....is there an HTML (tag/code/whatever) that makes the text you type in appear as ***** in the text box?)

    you are gonna need serious bandwidth if your gonna be streaming video i think a home connection for that is a bit unrealistic. 17gigs is also alot of content i would not offer up that much unless its a ftp server for your mates.

    if your using your home computer a small to medium site mainly dealing with text and images is all you can hope for really.

    I'm only streaming it to a couple of friends (at one time). From what I know is that i need to upload the files to a web server (has to be my own because of file size) which i hope to do by FTP.

    you should probably look for something like shoutcast but for video.

    you will not need to run a webserver just the server software they give you to upload the file to them.

    hopefully someone will be able to recommend you such a service.

    There's no way you're streaming video to anyone on that connection. With 512K d/l I'm assuming 256K u/l and that nothing for serving up video.

    And about that code...
    Code:
    <textarea id="censorMe" onchange="censor();">
    </textarea>
    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function censor()
    {
       var censorMe=document.getElementById("censorMe");
       var out="";
       for(var i=0;i<censorMe.length();i++)
       {
          var temp=censorMe.charAt(i);
          if (temp!="*")
          {
             temp="*";
          }
          out+=temp;
       }
       document.getElementById("censorMe")=out;
    }
    </script>

    oh well....thanks anyway.

    But I'd still like to learn how to use an Apache server. See first post.
