Hi there, I am new to Dreamhost, WordPress, PHP.
I would like to follow the w3schools PHP tutorial, but being able to test the sample code as I go.
How can I set things up so that I can create files with code in them, and then see how they will look in a browser having connected to my Dreamhost hosted domain? I have a WordPress site as a test site already at the root of this domain, and don’t want to interfere with that for now. I just want a directory where I can create, view, edit pages of code using a text editor and see how it all works.
I have a shared hosting account, and have pressed the ‘one-click’ WP install. I am assuming that the php and MySQL functionality will be available to me wherever I put the directory/files/pages.
I hope this is clear. Any help greatly appreciated.
