Windows XP and IIS

Hi,

I'm using Windows XP home Edition, the problem is I need to PWS or IIS to set my offline site.

Previously I was using Win 98 with PWS.


Is there any third party(free) that can work as IIS in Win. XP home Edition. ?


Thanks & Regards
Sri

Unfortunately IIS is not available with home edition. You should go for "XP Professional"

Check this link

Don't see any reason that Apache wouldn't work on XP home although I haven't tried it myself. You will need Service Pack 1 thought.

You can download a binary from any of the mirror sites like:

ftp://ftp.apache.inetcosmos.org/pub/apache/dist/httpd/binaries/win32/

In this directory is a README.html with some info about XP, etc.

Good luck,
ard
