Subject:Personal Web Server (?) for From:Jean Clougherty <jean -at- VITALIMAGES -dot- COM> Date:Tue, 24 Sep 1996 13:54:12 -0500
I heard of a type of tool called a "personal web server." As I understand it,
it is supposed to help you set up a directory structure on your computer that
mirrors the structure on your web server. The purpose is so you can set up a
website on your own computer, complete with links, and then upload it to your
company's web server without having to redo any links.
Does anybody know of such a tool that will run on my Macintosh? Or, if I
misunderstood the use of a "personal web server," but you know of another way
to accomplish what I need to do, I'd appreciate hearing that, too!
