Getting Started

Postby wittmebaa » 06. December 2010 22:18

Just downloaded and installed xampp.

Long term Id like to be able to develop and apply php, MySQL, HTML, CSS on a server domain operated by my son (space he is renting from godaddy).

Is there a getting started place where I can do some reading and start designing/developing some pages?

I need all the step-stones for what files go where, how to get a database on the server, etc.

I should have been a little more precise and clear.

I have built pages using HTML and CSS. I use FTP (Firezilla) all the time and have lots of pages, images and css on an existing site.

What I need is the process for creating a DB, moving (if that is appropriate) to the server, implementing Apache (if appropriate) and connect with MySQL along with .php pages. I have no clue where to start with this part.

The webspace belongs to my son on GoDaddy and Im quite sure it will allow MySQL and other read/write actions (may need to sign up but does exist).

I was of the impression that Apache would allow much of this to be developed on a PC and make it look just like being on a live server. Is that correct?

This is what I have found and seems just what I needed. Still have lots of questions, but will finish working thru this example and see what it covers.

http://dalibor.dvorski.net/downloads/do ... hXAMPP.pdf

===========

When I try to create the db, I am receiving this error - I have typed the url, copied it and clicked the link in the PDF all yielding an error. While doing the installation there were lots of questions which I may not have answered properly due to lack of knowledge.

I did have apache and mysql running at the time of this error.

===========

Figured it out. Here is the problem. The link uses upper case on words which does not work.

It reads: http://localhost/phpMyAdmin/
Should read: http://localhost/phpmyadmin/
