New to hosting in general


#1

Basically, I have very limited knowledge about Hosting, networking and such stuff, but am still interested in making a site.

So far most of the books use your own machine as a server, setting up apache tomcat or glassfish ect, but how exactly do I do the same thing in dreamhost?

Also, I’ve been looking at a help desk software called Bugzilla from Mozilla, but have diffculty understanding it’s installation. Is it possible to run such a thing using dreamhost

Apache, PHP, MySQL, etc. are already set up for you :wink:

If you’ve created a site, simply upload it into your domain.com folder via SFTP.

So mmmm how to I access them?

Like say, the admin console of apache or MySQL?

Like I said, I’m reaaallly noob to this :stuck_out_tongue:

You can’t administer the Apache service.

To create MySQL databases, use your Panel.

https://panel.dreamhost.com/index.cgi

You can add databases under Goodies > Manage MySQL

The DreamHost Wiki contains a wealth of knowledge as well :wink:
