I just recently bought an old laptop, veeery old laptop :) and I want to turn it into a web-server for my personal website.
This "project" is simply to help me better understand vulnerabilities in such systems.
So the project is supposed to work like this:
The old laptop, lets call it Oldy, is running Windows XP and my development computer, lets call it Newy, is running Windows 7. I want to be able to have the website running on the Oldy and develop on Newy, then when I make some change I want to be able to commit the change to Oldy so it will start running the implemented features.
I want to know in a very abstract way what steps I should take to achieve this. What sofware I should install on Oldy and Newy for example.
I want the website to use PhP. I want users to be able to register and log in.
Thank you very much, hopefully I provided enough information for someone to help me.
