Upload the WAV file to your own server. Although you might want to stream a file that already exists online somewhere, doing so could cause the person hosting the file to lose “bandwidth” (the amount of data the hosting provider allows him to use each month) every time someone plays it. Login to your 'File Manager' and upload the file. Double click on the name of your file within the 'File Manager' to open it in a new tab or window.
Add an 'embed' code to the HTML of the webpage on which you wish to stream your WAV file. Hold down the 'Ctrl' and 'C' keys at the same time and copy the following code onto your computer's clipboard by highlighting it.
Paste the embed code into the HTML file for the page on which you plan to stream your wave. Double click on the file name—'index.html,' for example—in your 'File Manager' to open the HTML editor. Click your mouse wherever in the page—under the main 'Header' but before the 'Links' section, for example—and hold down the 'Ctrl' and 'V' keys at the same time to paste the embed code into the file.
Paste your WAV file's URL into the embed code. Navigate back to the tab where you opened your WAV file and click your mouse inside your browser's 'Address Bar.' Hold down the 'Ctrl' and 'C' keys at the same time to copy the file's URL and then tab back to your HTML file. Highlight the text file.wav and hold down the 'Ctrl' and 'V' keys at the same time to replace it with your file's URL.
Set whether or not you'd like your streaming WAV file to play automatically by adjusting the value after
'Autostart.' By default, the code you've inserted will begin playing the file as soon as someone visits your webpage. Replace 'true' with 'false' (all lowercase in any instance) to change this.
Save your HTML file and visit your webpage to listen to your streaming WAV file.
Click the 'Start' button and select 'Settings.'
Double click the 'Control Panel' icon.
Double click the 'Add/Remove Programs' icon. This opens a window that lists the currently installed software.
Click 'Add/Remove Windows Components.' This opens a screen with all the current internal operating system software.
Click 'Internet Information Services.' This opens the installation wizard.
Click the 'Next' button. The installation begins. It should take only take a few minutes to install IIS.
Click the 'Finish' button. This closes the wizard window.
Click the 'OK' button. This closes the 'Add/Remove Programs' window.
Log into Plesk. Scroll down and left click on the SSH Terminal. This will open the terminal in the browser window. Enter your FTP password and click OK.

Type 'rm filename.txt,' but replace filename.txt with the name of the error log. This will remove the error log from the server.

Look for the Web service on the local computer. If you have access to the machine that you wish to check for Web servers, look to see if a Web service is installed and running. If the computer is running Windows, click on the Control Panel and select Services. Windows runs Internet Information Services for its Web server. On a Unix/Linux box, make sure you are logged in as root and in a command window, type 'netstat -tap |grep LISTEN' and press 'Enter.' This will display all services running at the time, including HTTPD (HTTP daemon or service) used by Apache Web servers.
Type the IP address or DNS (Domain Name Service) name into a Web browser. If you know either identifying piece of information, you can type it into a Web browser. Note that the Web server needs to be running on the default port of 80 in order for this method to work. A port is how network services access a server. Typically, services have default ports on which they operate, with the default for Web services being port 80. Typing in the IP address of a server in a Web browser will work, but if the port has been manually changed to something other than port 80 (unless you know what port it is) this method won't work. To specify a port other than 80 via a Web browser, type the IP address and then follow it with :XXX with XXX being the port number. An example of this format is 126.96.36.199:2112 with the number following the colon being the port number.
Run a port scanner. As mentioned above, port 80 is the default port in which a Web server operates. If you don't want to go through ports 1 through 65,000 manually, you can run what's called a port scanner. This software will 'listen' to a server which you specify by IP address or DNS name and determine what services are running on what ports. This way, if someone has enabled a Web server on port 2112 or another port, the port scanner will detect it. This method is popular if you want to detect Web servers that you don't have physical access to.
