In this course I am going to show you how to setup your very own web development lab. Whether you are interested in learning web design, need a platform to build websites for clients, or want to start a web development business, this course will help you do just that!
In this course I will teach you about Virtual Machines (VMs), walk you through building and configuring your first VM, installing Ubuntu LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL and PHP) Server, configuring your share-drives between Ubuntu and Windows, installing Wordpress, and downloading Themes / Plugins for Wordpress.
Best of all, I understand that your time is extremely valuable! I designed this course to get the job done as quickly as possible and for that reason this course is only 45 minutes long! I took every precaution to avoid adding the fluff that will frustrate and hinder your learning. I edit out every uneccessary waiting and loading times so I don't waste your time!
You don't have any reason to not take this course! I will see you inside the course!

We will need Oracle VM VirtualBox to install and manage our web design server / virtual machine! This is a critical step for a web development lab! You can download VirtualBox from the following link:
In this lecture I am going to show you how to download Ubuntu Server 14.04. This operating system is ideal for web hosting as it is extremely light-weight! It is a much better alternative to a Windows OS that will require MUCH more power from your host computer. You can download Ubuntu Server from the following link:
Wordpress allows you to build websites quickly and easily! If you would like to install WordPress later on in the course, make sure you download this so you can follow along in future lectures. You can download wordpress from the following link:
In this lecture we will cover what a Virtual Machine (commonly refereed to as "VM") is. We are going to use Oracle VM VirtualBox to create and manage our Virtual Machines.
It is time to setup our Virtual Machine. Don't forget it is better to setup a larger HDD now than to create something that is too small!
Now that we have our Virtual Machine created we need to install Ubuntu
Samba is a tool that will allow us to drag / drop files directly to / our LAMP server from our host machine! This makes building a website incredibly faster as this is 0 waiting time. No more waiting for your FTP client to upload the new documents and then waiting a couple of minutes for your page to refresh! It will now be instantaneous.
Let's test our server to make sure it's working! Additionally I am going to show you how to create a local DNS entry so you won't have to memorize your IP address of your local server. For example: instead of typing http://192.168.1.170, you could type http://myweblab.local/ or whatever you decide to make up!
If you would like to create a WordPress website on your LAMP Web Design server, you will first need to create the WordPress database in MySQL. In this lecture I will show you how to do this! Thankfully it isn't as complicated as it sounds so let's get it done!
