 PostPost subject: m1rkd1rk.co.uk comedy video site - issues/problems        Posted: Thu Dec 07, 2006 9:23 pm

Hello all.

m1rkd1rk.co.uk will be my main project from now on.

It will be a video site with comedy clips from around the web and my own creations.

Now, I dont want to splash out on renting a server from a datacentre so its gonna be hosted on a machine in my bedroom.

Heres the setup:

SERVER
3ghz CPU
512mb RAM
Windows XP home
Abyss Web Server X1
Own dedicated internet connection (NTL 512kbps)
FileZilla FTP server
and a DNS server so I can run the domain name

MAIN COMPUTER
1.3GHZ
512mb RAM
Win XP Pro
Shared internet connection with other pc's in home.

I think this is a good setup, once my dad has built my new computer desk I will be up, up, and away!

512kbps may be slow but all the vids will be 1 time download.

What do you all think of this?

512Kbps NTL has a very slow upload speed, 64Kbps (8KB/s ish) I beleive. You won't have much luck with this. You're better off getting the 4Mbps package for slightly more and getting 400Kbps (48KB/s ish) upload. The upload is the most important part of the setup, especially when you're thinking of sending very large video files.

Why in gods name would you use XP home for a server connected to the internet?

All I can say is that you must have had some dodgy driver or something, as 2003 Server is built off XP and is said to be, if anything, more stable.

Aggreed... however if XP suits you... then I guess it's fine to run.
