Hi I’m new to web development as a whole, though i took HTML/CSS, Javasccript, and PHP track courses on Codecademy. I want to know more about how to, in 5 year old talk, get my website to talk to my server. what do i need to use? I have webpages written and ready, and I use Aptana as my IDE.

Add to htaccess file:
