Fished out my old linux computer from my closet and decided to get a website up and running. However, I cannot for the life of me figure this thing out and it's getting frustrating. I want to host my own website, this is more like a DIY experience rather than a money issue.
I will attempt to outline and detail the steps I took, and I would appreciate it if the ubuntu community could point me in the right direction.
1.) I registered a domain name thru godaddy.com
2.) Because I am under a dynamic IP, I forwarded my IP to the freedns.afraid.org website. My nameservers are now NS1.afraid.org and NS2.afraid.org with my dynamic IP and domain attached to them. I then replaced the nameserver host in godaddy with this (yikes did I screw up here?)
3.) I installed LAMP thru a sudo tasksel, this seemed like the best way according to a quick search. This is where I get confused. Where do I open it? How do I run this program?
I already have a really basic index.php file ready to go. I just want to be able to see it when I type my domain in someone else's computer. I didn't realize it would be this hard
