Sorry for what must be a very basic set of questions but I have no idea where to begin......
I have installed XAMPP 1.5.5 and status shows that everything except SMTP and FTP are activated.
I have an existing website which was setup using Dreaweaver8, do I need to copy (move?) the files from their present location into XAMPP to be able to view them via localhost?
Can anyone advise how I setup the testing server settings in Dreamweaver8 to enable me to test pages without having to upload them to my remote hosting server?
Do I need to reproduce all of my database from my remote server onto my local machine?
Sorry again if this seems to be extremely vague, but when you first start out with something new the problem is that you don't know what you don't know (if you know what I mean! )
I would really like to be able to get a handle on setting up and using XAMPP as a testing server to help me develop my site, so any help or suggestions would be very greatly appreciated!
thanks in advance for any help that you may be able to offer.
