Hi Guyz!
I've been brainstorming for a while. I need to have a small intranet site set up for my department in school. I know that this should involve a server running with some server OS (I chose MS Server 2003) with a router to disseminate the signals for the intranet. I've got that set up, but what do I do next. I'm a web developer (upcoming actually) and I've already constructed the web pages for the intranet, question is: how do I configure the server such that when a user connects to the network hosted by the server and types the URL I'd specify, it serves the index.html page to the user??? Also, I'd appreciate tips, hints, tricks generally on setting up this intranet thing... Thanks Guys!!!

It would be much simpler to use WAMP or XAMPP. Setting up Windows Server is not trivial.

If you've already got it half set up... maybe take a look at this tutorial...

@ Grovicus: WAMP or XAMPP?? Never heard of those but if Groovicus says it's good then I bet it is; would look into it. Thanks all the same. @KamakaZ: Thanks Mate! The site's really loaded with tons of stuff, will go through every page there and if I still have challenges, I'll cone right here. Thanks once again!!

WAMP is a bundle of Apache + mySQL + PHP for Windows (W). Quick and easy to install.
XAMPP is a bundle of Apche + mySQL + PHP + Perl and is cross platform (X)

I personally prefer installing Apache mysql and PHP manually. Its much cleaner that way.

I am in basically the same boat as Extrodewise but I am running server 2008 that is already serving as our domain controller.  In short we already have a network that in heavy use by the office.  I have recently been promoted to IT.  I have a fair amount of experience with PCs and servers but most of what I have learned was learned by hard knocks and learning on the fly.  While I am not the only IT (there are two of us) but my boss (the senior IT man) also does other jobs for the company and is swamped with other things so he cant do a lot unless it is business critical right now.  We want to set up a intranet page where employees can access their home and public folders on the server as well as having a public calender for the office... you get the picture.  Does anyone have any suggested sites and or advice for how to set this up?  While I am not computer illiterate I am also not overly experienced with server 2008 and am learning as I go.

Thanks for any help or pointers you may have.

I may be wrong, but have a look at SharePoint, it may be able to do what you're after.

Thank you KamakaZ, I'll look into it though I am still in the search for any good reading on how suggestions for putting it together and making it work.

Are the "home and public folders" the folders you see within Outlook? If so, you could just use OWA (Outlook Web Access)?
