    Thanks for the reply Melkior

    Just to run my own sites. Is it worth the hassle?

    Its not worth the hassle to run your own web server off of your own machine at home, no.

    Although, it is possible. I only do it for testing purposes, for PHP and SQL.

    I use XAMPP. apache friends - xampp

    Completely agree with you dhscot,
    If you are doing it for a joke or for testing its okay but to host a reliable website from home, its now advisable
