To make a web page you need both a web server and a text editor. The webserver we’re going to use is Apache. There are lots of choices for a text editor but many web developers use Text Pad.
The full instructions are here, but they are fairly detailed.
We’re going to run Apache on localhost. This is a special name for a computer that let’s us access our own machine as if it were a server. On localhost Apache can only send pages to one computer, but that’s ok because it’s all we need for development.
http://localhost/ in your browser
Once our website is built the files will be transferred to another Apache that will serve the page onto the Internet.
