I maintain a website on a server out in the cloud. My goal is to develop pages on my local system and then transfer then to the website. I did have an apache server working on my system but I had a disk crash and in the process of restoring my system I came across the XAMPP 1.8.2 that contains apache, mysql, and php all three I would like to learn more about.
I am a navies to the world of apache, and I just downloaded and installed XAMPP_win_1_8_2 . I have tested it and It seems to work, but, it’s not what I would like to do. My goal is to run from a commented volume called “webserver” or “localhost”. I want to place folders on this volume that run, HTML, CSS, and PHP (maybe MySQL databases). The folders will contain html, css, and php files calling other files both within the volume , folders and out in the cloud.
