I have a small network at home (one old desktop, two laptops), running off a wireless-enabled ADSL router.
I work as a webdesigner and what I would like to do is to convert the desktop into a linux-based web-server (running Apache, MySQL, PHP) to use for testing, only visible on my internal network.
Could someone offer some advice on how to set this up?
The easiest solution I can think of is to let the router handle the internet access as per usual and to access the testing webserver via its internal IP address but I was wondering whether I can/should use the linux box as a proxy/gateway to the internet proper...
I'm not too experienced in these matters, any advice would be welcome.
Thanks - Nils.
