post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Can someone point me in the right direction on how to get started hosting a little family web site off my pc ? I see guys talking about it all over the site but not sure where to start, we already to a domain and its on a free site but I'm tired of ads and pops ups.... basic html site with a phpbb forum & gallery.

thanks!

Are you going to keep it internal to your local network? If so, XAMPP is by far the easiest way to go. Just download (The .zip bundle is my preferred, but installer available too), unzip, open the xampp-control.exe application and click on the start button for Apache and MySQL if you are going to have DB. You are good to go. Drop your site into the htdocs folder and done!

You will want to click the svc checkbox to have it run as a service once everything is up and running so it restarts when your computer is booted.

If you are exposing the site outside your local network, you can still use xampp, but there are some default settings that are not secure and you would want to make sure those are all taken care of before exposing your network to the outside world. So be aware of that. Lots of online resources on how to secure a default xampp install.

I'm sorry, but...what?!?

Someone who doesn't know basic HTML and CSS would know enough PHP AND HTML/CSS to create a web site? If you mean just using a template, even that's a terrible idea as most Joomla templates SUCK.
