    I have only used FirePages and it worked by me just unzipping it. However, I needed to make some changes to the *.ini file for sessions to work correctly.

    Used NuSphere to get everything up on my windows boxa week or so ago, unzipped it and ran the setup.exe, it opened a web page, I clicked the install button, and followed the instructions, everything worked out of the box exxcept https, it asksme to accept the certificate, but won't load a file. Other then that it worked fine, I've done a bit of hand configuring to get it to work "my way" since, have'nt taken a serious look at the https problem though as I don't need it for anything at the moment. I'd reccomend it at this point, it gave me a working envirornment on windows 98, which is what I needed, all quickly and easily. Don't think I'd use this setup to actually serve live pages on the web though, but I would assume it's linux setup would be capable of that with a few modifications.

    You just need to edit your httpd.conf file, if you're running it on win 9x, and you just did the default install it's in the "C:\Program Files\nusphere\apache\conf\" folder, you need to add the line "Listen n" where n is the port number you want it to serve pages on, ie. "Listen 8000" will make it listen on port 8000, so now http://localhost:8000/ should bring up the nushpere welcome page, if you search the httpd.conf file for "Listen" you'll find the "documentation" for the listen parameter. Hope this helps.

    oops.....
    just realized it looks like I was saying editing the httpd.conf file only applies on win 9x, the same file controls Apache's config, and works the same way on whatever OS you're using, what I meant to say was the directory path I was giving only applies to win9x, so you'll have to find the file yourself on a different OS, should be in apache's conf directory regardless of OS though.
