"xampp\htdocs" is where you would place you web files. Problem is, when you go to local host, you get the xampp page. I recommend deleting the "index.php" and "index.html" located in "xampp\htdocs".

I believe that you can, but do to security issues with the design, you aren't supposed to use it to host files. You can fix these problems, but unless you have an extremely fast and connection and a powerful PC, and you have 2 or more people on the site, your computer will lag relay bad! Same goes for making your forum globally accessible.

I don't believe you do.
