Hi, I'm new to XAMPP. I've installed XAMPP on my Ubuntu 9.04 installation on my home computer.
I want to install Joomla! and create a website within the localhost enviroment [is that the right word?]. Then I will eventually 'export' (transfer) the website to a shared hosting server.
I have several questions. I would appreciate it very much if someone could help.
I am unable to find clear beginner level info on installing Joomla! on XAMPP on a Linux OS. The Joomla! website documentation caters more to Windows.
1. Is there a non-complicated way to install Joomla! ?
2. Does XAMPP need to be secured if you're only running it on localhost, with no network, no collaboration, [aka a single desktop computer with a cable internet router] ?
3. Is it possible to create the website in the localhost setup and (transfer) it to a live shared webhost?
