This project explores three areas related to deploying a small-scale website that can be implemented on a home-built UNIX server. The first component is the installation and configuration of a UNIX Solaris 8 operating system on a Sun Microsystems SPARCstation 5. The second area is the installation and configuration of Apache Web Server on UNIX with the PHP scripting language module. The third piece is the construction of a shopping website to demonstrate PHP programming and usability. The result is, "Delivering a Shopping Website Using Apache Web Server on UNIX."
