Is it possible for me to run an .exe on a server I own?
I don't know much about how they work etc [I'm a software person, not hardware =o!], so I don't know if a 'server' is just a computer that has a lot of memory that can be accessed, or if it has an operating system that I can access.

Servers are computers too, and they have OSes :) If it's Windows, you can run an .exe.

You can however not just put it in a folder and access it by typing it's url.

but that would totally depend on how you've set up your web server.


a [b]web[/b]server is generally a machine that serves web pages based on a web protocol such as HTTP.
depending on how you have set up your OS and the web server, you can serve anything you want on your machine to the web.


but like effigy said, exe's are native to windows. other OS's can run em too but you'd need third party software to run an exe.
