I asked this question in another forum for the forum side of my site, but I need a little more information pertaining to the directory side of my site. You guys know about the crazy site I am building, so I will not go into all of that. I am trying to build my own server to host my entire site on. I need to know how though. What am I going to need for my server to work properly with a forum, web store, directory.... etc. So basically, when trying to find a hosting service what would I look for there for my directory to work properly?
