Start Your Own Hosting Tomorrow may be exciting

Recommended Posts

:P At first download Apache from http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/. Download will take place 30 secs over a broadband connection & installation will take 1 minute. Now unpack the exe where ever you want. After you unpack & run serverinst.exe and change Servername and your e-mail. Then start the following files one by one:


start_apache.cmd --> start apache as service;

mysql_start_as_service.cmd --> dito for mysql;

mysql_first_start.cmd --> start mysql now.


Open your browsert and insert: http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/. Now you must see the start site. Call phpmyadmin at http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/ and change the password for the root and change the rights for the other user.


This is the time of Testing:


Call: http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/--&; local from you're computer.


You can also call : LOCALHOST (this is the same as http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/) to enter you're site remotely you need to know you're IP : get this on : https://www.whatismyip.com/. When you enter this IP in the browser, you can acces your site from around the world. We need a free domein of course. Go to dot.tk to get one and refere to your IP. You'll find a map named public_html. Imagine you have 10 sites to host so you'll have to make 10 maps insite the map public_html. Let's say we name the maps 1,2,3,4,.... (you can name them whatever you like) and lets say our IP is : 1111.2222.3333.4444. (Get this on : https://www.whatismyip.com/) So imagine we want to call remotely site number 8 for example:





You can not use FTP to remotly acces you're host (public_html map). To enable this we have to download a FTP server. Here's a list of free ones:


http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/. Set for your ftp server public_html map as root. And you're done.


Congratulations, with you're hosting company!


Important note for the newbies : Your computer has to be turned on otherwise you can't access the server remotely. And if you use a router you'll need more experience to call the server remotely (from the internet), but it is still posible to use it as a testing server [locally, LOCALHOST]. The benefit in case of a router is that you can use the server as a intranet site. To know you're ip with a router, open dos prompt (cmd in xp) and type : ipconfig.


To stop the server:


apache_stop.cmd -> Stop apache;

apache_remove_service.cmd --> Remove the service from apache;

mysql_shutdown.cmd --> Dito for mysql.
