ok, here is my problem....i just bought a new hp computer, and installed Linux on it. I have it running, and everything seems to be working fine, but how do i use it as a server? I have tried to install apache2 on it and MySql, but i am not sure how to get them working. I know that when apache is correctly installed, you can enter "localhost" in the browser on that computer, and it will show the main apache page. i am not getting that
I have also been messing with the mysql, but i have no idea how to set it up so that i can access it, or even get it to start up when the computer boots. I really need alot of help, so if possible, i can use an IM service if someone is willing to help me! thanks!
