About This Class

When building websites in HTML, CSS & Javascript, it is easy to see what we are building because these languages work in the browser.

However when we want to move onto creating dynamic, database driven websites, we have to do things differently. We can either pay for a live web server which may not be an option during development, or we can simulate a web server on our development computer.

That is what this course is all about. I will show you how to install and setup a localhost to allow you to display websites created using serverside languages such as PHP. 

Then we move on to show you how easy it can be to install popular content management systems, WordPress and Drupal, including how to set up and add mySQL databases.

This course doe's not cover how to build websites, I have other courses available if thats what you need, but you will be left with the skills to successfully set up websites locally.

So if you need some help setting up a localhost, installing WordPress or Drupal, this is the course for you!
