Creating a web server/intranet page

 11:01 pm on Apr 30, 2008 (gmt 0)

I want to create a "collaboration" style intranet page for our Department at work. We have a company intranet which is stagnant and unusable, and we have hardly any rights to change it as it is done from a global level.
I have the go ahead for the Department intranet from the right people, however basically I have to create it all myself!

Can someone please point me in the right direction in regards to:

* Creating a Web Server and its requirements (we have a computer which is publishing the electronic bulletin boards around the office, can we run off that? Or does it need to be dedicated?)
* Creating a web page with the ability to have a forum / wiki / bookmark posting etc built in.

I have understanding of HTML/CSS, its the next steps I am unsure of...

Thanks heaps for anyone that can help!

If you want to get a quick start for a testing environment you can install XAMPP. It includes Apache, PHP, MySql and a few other things.

Do you have a budget to work with?

If so, use Microsoft Sharepoint Portal Server. If not, use DotNetNuke CMS (it's free).

In either of these cases you will require a Windows Server 2003 machine with IIS 6 and SQL Server 2K.

We could potentially source a budget, however it would be limited.
