Cool where and how to display images


Hi,
I just recently figured out how to get my linux box to run apache and get the TEST PAGE. Now, I'd like to display my digital pictures in an album format. How can I do this? What directory can I place my pix and how can I get it display nicely as I seen on other websites. Thanks.

That's quite an open ended question... You'll want to probably look at pre-built solutions, however you will still need to learn a bit of html likely to figure things out. You've learned to run before you walked, now you have to go back and learn how to crawl in order to walk.

Try this for an option:

Cool

Ok. You're right. So, if I back up my steps, what else do I need to learn to get this up and running?
Basically, I learned the steps of getting a domain name, getting a static IP, installing linux and starting up apache..
Looks like I need PHP, learn some html ?? Thanks again.

Well, to be honest, I know very little PHP yet get by with my vague idea of it. I'm fairly strong in HTML, yet may HTML pages look like crap piled on rotten newspapers. I think you'll find most websites migrating to other forms of writing, such as PHP and XML rather than HTML. PHP is nice because of it's (ready for the 25 cent made up word) dynamocity It's written to be dynamic, and can pull a lot of it's info from a database and such.

Anyway, back to the issue at hand, you don't have to really learn web design to run a webserver. However, to know what's going on behind the curtain will certainly help if things don't go right. Check out the page I listed above, and also look at:
www.php.net to find out how to setup Apache to work with PHP so you can get that Gallery going!

Cool
