hi all i recently set up my own webserver at home to host some websites i am working on.
i am using xampp for my server software and i am using FTP.

i know it is a lot to ask but can any one take me through the steps on how to set my server up correctly? on the dream weaver tab it says i am connected to the server but when i try and goto the web site i just get the page load error i have tried a few different approches but no look...

thanx
Wayne

if you type http://localhost in a browser what do you see?

ok then your server is set up. i suspect its site definitions use 'local network' as connection
