Seeking Guidance in Basic Web Development

Posted 18 September 2012 - 10:09 PM

I am interested in setting up and running my own website, however I have never set up or run a website before. I purchased the ElevatedX CMS hosting, and ProxyPass, thinking I would be able to connect the dots and teach myself how to set up Apache, but I don't know what my next steps are and I am left totally lost on my own. I do not know how to run or set up my website after I've paid for hosting and CMS. I'd really like to know what I need to expect to do on my end to allow all of this to be set up. I just hope by knowing this info, I can figure out what I can or can not do, before I put more into investing onto a site. I'm afraid it'll never launch. I have a lot of the tools but no knowledge to put it all together. Do I need to hire a programmer or webmaster? Or can I set it all up and run it after I figure it out? My preferred route is to learn what I need to do and self teach myself. I know that a step to step guideline may be unrealistic, I just want some general guidance on what needs to be done next because I feel very lost. I apologize in advance, as I know most of you probably find my questions to be very silly and also, thank you so much for your patience and time. Any help would be deeply appreciated.

So you want to run a porn site? Did you purchase the CMS + Hosting or just the CMS? This will have a huge impact on how much work you have to do.

You're seriously going to run a porn site?

haha... Yes, I'm going to run a porn site. Atleast I'm going to try. As you can tell, I haven't got very far yet... lol

I purchased both the CMS and hosting by them. Does this mean I've got a lot already set up?

If you are paying for the hosted CMS, you're pretty much done except for actually putting up your content. From the ElevatedX website:

Quote

The one-time fee includes installation and setup by our staff and testing of your CMS using your content.

The CMS will be delivered to you tested by our staff and ready to begin using.


At the bottom of the pricing page, it says:

Quote

Please allow 3-5 business days for your CMS to be installed.


How long ago did you make your purchase? Have you heard back from the company? Have you contacted their tech support?
