Section 1: In this section of the course we will look at installing wamp and two CMS’s

IMPORTANT READ THIS: In this video we will look at your hosting companies settings, more importantly its naming conventions if any!, we will have a look at Control X a standard interface for controlling your domain and website. If you do not have this you will need to ask your hosting company for details about the naming prefixes used if any!!!!.

For this course we are putting our local site onto an apache server running control X, control X allows you to easily manage your domain and access emails, sql databases and also access PHPAdmin this is especially important for when we import out databases into the live site!. All questions re the Control X panel should be asked of your Domain Registrar - Remember to upload a site you must have webspace!!! with them.


If you have problems installing Wamp it probably because you do not have the additional service packs, lets look at installing those now.

If you have other problems please refer to the download help sheet.
