New iMAC, Does it Have a Built-In Web Server Like IIS Did on Windows?

I need more help with my new Mac! I used to use IIS on my Windows PC to run a photo gallery software package that I could use from anywhere, and registered a domain that I used GoDaddyGoDaddy Domain Registrar to point to my home server. I had to setup an SQL server on it, PHP, and everything, so it has it's own database and I've spend many hours adding pictures to it, tagging them, and so on, so I would like to just move this all over to my new Mac as painlessly as possibly. My question is, does a Mac have a built-in web server software like Windows had IIS? And if so, how do I use it?

New iMAC! Need Help! How do I use my NTFS USB Drive?

Hi everyone, I just got a new iMac and I plugged in my external USB hard drive, I can read and copy files from it, but then I can't delete anything off of it? I'm told it's because it's formatted as NTFS, how can I make my new Mac use my drive as it is without formatting it just for macs? I'd like to still be able to put photos, music, etc. on it that I'd be able to plug into and view on PC's. Is there some easy (preferably free) way to do this?

Way to make Macs user-friendly, Apple! Frustrated

Moving Mac formatted files on external to another Hard Drive to be used on a PC.


I have a client that has publishing data, about 250 gigs worth, on a Mac formatted firewire 400 only, external hard drive, give to her by her creative art person. The client needs the data to be used by her PC. So, I am trying to move the data from the firewire drive on to a new USB external that the client can access. So far, I can't find a format for the USB drive that will allow the Mac formatted files to be seen on a PC. I’ve tried Fat32 and Mac OS Extended with out any luck. Anybody have an idea?

How To Start Up Your Mac in Safe Mode


If your Mac is freezing, not starting up correctly, or behaving in another odd way, you could be looking at several possible causes. For example, a hardware failure, software glitch, or corrupt file might be to blame. To help narrow down the possibilities and perhaps just gain access to your files again, Safe Mode is a good place to start.

macbook hardware and windows XP OS

OK, so i wasnt sure on where to post this one because it jumps through about 4 different categories. Hardware, software, windows, mac. I have a macbook with windows xp lite installed on it. and i cannot find no drivers in xp form that would help work the mac hardware. i know xp can be put on mac, but i guess the drivers is where they stick it to ya for trying to cross platform. the mouse lags, the keybaord lags, the resolution is low, theres no windows startup sound. other than that its fine. runs good, boots ok, ideas?

So we all know how staunch Apple lovers can be, well now they will have their own dating website Laughing Launching in June 2010 cupidtino.com is a place where you can meet and date a fellow Apple lover. The site will only launch on Apple platforms of course, no PC's allowed. Ridiculous? or does it make total geek sense?
