What do I need to know about a home server to determine whether or not I can install WordPress on it?
My kids’ sports team is interested in using WordPress. I’ve installed it with cpanel and PHPMyAdmin (and a lot of help from Podz’ WordPress guides) so I figured I could do it, but then I learned the site wouldn’t be hosted on a commercial web host! What to do???
I read the “Things You Need to Know Before You Install WordPress” and “The Minimum Requirements to Run WordPress” articles in the codex. So I know I need
PHP 4.1 or greater
MySQL 3.23.23 or greater
The mod_rewrite Apache module
I searched the forum, too, in case there was anything else, but nothing came up for “Home Server” or “server.”
So tell me if there’s anything else, anything unique to a home server that I’ll need to know before I tell these people either “yes, we can do it” or “no way, Jose, let’s put this baby on a commercial web host instead.”
