    Question Webservers: going online?

    In addition to my other question in this section of the forums, I also would like to know how I actually go about setting up the web server-- that is, how do I get it online? I already have XAMPP installed on a LINUX (Ubuntu) OS, and I am probably going to buy the domain name from godaddy, unless you have another suggestion.

    So what do I do from there? How do I go from localhost to www.mysite.com?

    (I googled it, but ironically I got a lot of information for WinXP servers, and other information that doesn't help me.)

    Thanks,
    Jas

    get a static ip, buy a domain name and point it to your ip. if you don't have a static ip go to http://www.dyndns.com/

    I need more information. How do I point the domain name to the IP, for starters?

    When you purchase your domain, you will be given access to a DNS "Control Panel". use this to point your (sub)domains to their specific IP addresses.

    Hope this helps.

    I suspect that the reason you got a lot of XP info is that nobody uses XAMPP or similar "Apache for dummies" packages on Linux. Your package manager should do everything for you.

    Beg your pardon?
    What's a package manager?

    That tells me as much as twey's post. I don't mean to sound rude, but In terms of LINUX, I am a first grader--I know nothing about the system tools or available tools beyond what windows has in common with linux-- so please give me some information that I can understand. Talk to me like I'm three if you have to. Again, I don't want to sound rude, but you guys aren't giving me much to work with.

    Well, you could look through these websites for more information on Linux:

    http://www.howtoforge.com/
    http://ubuntuforums.org/
    http://www.ubuntu.com/

    Also, depending on your version of Ubuntu, you could look through this search result for more info on how to set it up for a webserver.

    Hope this helps.
