I'd like to use my Mac LCIII as a web server for a tiny page...

any ideas on how i can do this?

I know i posted this question in apple collectors but i think its better suited and positioned for a response here.

please delete the other thread.

please delete the other thread.I recommend maxing-out the OS to MacOS 7.6.1. Max-out the RAM to 36 MB. You will need an Ethernet card in the PDS slot. You have a choice of web servers. You may use Personal Web Sharing that is built-in the OS. You may also use one of any number of freeware, shareware, or commercial webserver that run on System 7.x. I recommend MacHTTP (http://www.machttp.org/index.php). It requires System 7.5 and 4 MB RAM. MacHTTP is the basis of 4D WebSTAR, the U. S. Army's favorite web server.
