I want to serve my own podcast. I do not need the podcast to have a web interface. I am using Ubuntu. So I need solutions to two problems:

  1. Serving the files on http. I currently use Python’s simple http server but I guess that won’t scale well?

  2. Generating and updating the rss feed automatically from the files in a folder.

I am using Ubuntu.


With regards to question 1: Apache httpd (link is getting started tutorial). It is free, open source, and used by millions, if not billions. See this SO thread.

With regards to question 2: I have no experience with RSS. Hopefully someone else can chime in here while you get Apache up and going!
