Welcome to WebmasterWorld. :)

Google Xampp. Or Wamp. These are custom built packages that have all you need to create a development environment online.

No dreamcher, he just not mean web development sdk, he means the web server and control panel for server, as we find in web hosting company.

Yeah, lamp is good option for web server, which u can find at [sourceforge.Net...] , but u also need manage web server for which there is web server control panel, at [cpanel.com...]

If youre running your local server on a Windows PC there really isn't a lot of use for a control panel. Most of the server environments come with their own point and click application to start/stop services and carry out any configuration.

On a Linux system a control panel can indeed make your life a lot easier. Webmin is a great tool and best of all its free.

Beware of your ISP's usage policy. Most of them specifically disallow you from hosting **anything** over a connection meant for Internet access.

Also it is likely not to be an optimum solution in terms of reliability and speed, unless you dedicate the computer to being a server only.

I honestly don't recomend hosting a live site from your PC. I think setting up a server can be a great learning experience, but with good web hosting being so cheap these days there aren't many situations where it makes sense to home host.

Here is an article I wrote a while back covering this subject...
