This is a experiment:
try this link
http://localhost/phpbb/viewforum.php?f=2
ok
Now we have a real link: Try this one,...
http://creativeminds.webege.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=13
 I also wonder which method, people prefer, on the links,..the above
or
TRY THIS LINK please,....let me know which method is better (easier to use),...on the one hand, the first, shows the URL, the other simply says try this link but the user would need to right click the mouse, and select "view url" (somethin like that), to see what the url is,... Both of these are the same link.

  I use the 32 bit version of LinuxMint 10   
Ok thanks Schmoo, I was going to ask about that, I went to the LinixMint site, and there are so many versiones, I was not sure which one I should use,I guess it dose not matter that much, since it is a separate OS, but if it is unde windows, there might be different versions, for the various windows,..I was to tired to read everything they had to say on the LinuxMint site,...
... I have Windows Xp, on both computers,..from 2008, it is a service pack (professional) edition,...It was installed by a friend at the interenet cafe, so it has all his "permissions", license, etc....I assume it is legal,...but then I am not a lawyer, I don't usuully pay much attention to that stuff, and thats a different subject,
he did make me a installation CD,..so in case I "goof up", and it is the middle of the night,...I can re-install, ....This all came about, because every couple of days, I would show up with my laptop, , I could always get it to boot with DOS, but lost windows, several times,...and the laptop did not come with any installation disks,..it did have a way, to reinstall "online", but at the time I had no internet connection,  ...Then I also "bought" this computer from him, it is older, and he had the install CD, for windows, this computer. It was all trade, allthough he runs a internet cafe, he knew nothing about DOS, nor web design, and wanted to set up a web site, for his internet cafe,...so I helped him on that.
 Well sorry I really drifted off subject,...
I need to fix dinner, thanks again, see you later I hope,..

Garry,

From my experience Ubuntu is good and fairly user friendly. LinuxMint 10 is very user friendly. I use the 32 bit version of LinuxMint 10 for now. LinuxMint 11 is on the way. http://www.linuxmint.com/edition.php?id=69
It uses the Gnome interface system which is similar to how Windows looks and feels. You can download and burn a version and try it out.

I prefer LinuxMint over Ubuntu but I can use either one.

Good luck,

Schmoo

Schmoo,
 Ok, thats interesting,...I have a laptop I don't use that much,...I have seen ubanto mentioned quit often, but never worked with it,..linux I had tried,installing
on this computer once ,some time ago,...and got into trouble, lost windows, and never could get it to boot, from linux either,...But, I see the site you list, is different, form the one where I had gotten  linux, so I am going to check it out again,...
 I used to be more or less familiar with the unix commands, and have noticed a lot of similarity with linux,..
 Originally I had wanted to set this computer up, with DOS, Windows, and linux,..
but like I said never was able to install the linux,..but I did not know about the ,ubunto. I have a boot manager, XOSL, that I use for either Dos, or windows,..
 On the laptop, I could not install XOSL, and it is useing Grub for Dos, but there is alot I don't like about the way the laptop is configured,..so that would be my choice, for which machine I use to try this,...if I mess everything up it is ok, as I have been thinking about trying to re-configure it for some time.
 How ever the problem with the laptop is it has no CD (disk drive), I would have to install everything , via USB, I do have a "portable" USB , CD/DVD unit, which also can "burn" CDs/DVDS, also this computer, I can make the CD, I do have power ISO,...so that should not be any problem.....but sometimes it is, Ie: with XOSL, I couldn't install it via USB, useing the USB CD driver.... So like you said, it dose sound simpler, then actually doing it
 But I am interested in trying this again with linux, so I do appreciate the links, and also, if I have any questions, I can ask you, before I did not know anyone to ask,  guess thats about it for now,
from Garry and thanks

Garry,

My suggestion is if you have an extra system sitting around (some do and some don't), even an older system that runs slower. Trying installing LinuxMint or Ubuntu (Linux operating systems) and then look up instructions on installing LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL PhP). Its the easiest way to play with stuff offline. Then you upload your databases from MySQL to your online stuff and then your physical files under Apache to your online system and it will go live. Now saying that is much simpler than doing it but it is how MOST people work with their databases and files offline.

LinuxMint - http://www.linuxmint.com
Ubuntu - http://www.ubuntu.com
LAMP - http://www.howtoforge.com/ubuntu_lamp_for_newbies

If you have any questions then please share them. I have played with this setup and have some knowledge of it.

As a note you may understand that once you download LinuxMint or Ubuntu you can use PowerISO to burn it to a disc and keep it around in case you need to reinstall (I have reinstalled many times once I screw up a setup). You can install LinuxMint or Ubuntu like a program under Windows and when you start your system up it will give you a boot option and ask you which operating system you want to start: Windows or LinuxMint (or) Ubuntu. Then if you ever need to uninstall it you just uninstall it from Windows like you would any other program. Its an interesting way to run it and very useful for those that don't have an extra computer or don't want to switch operating systems permanently.

Best wishes,

Schmoo

If you have any questions please post them Smiley

Schmoo, ok, no you didn't sound harsh, and not knowing if I knew that about localhost or not, it is a good "warning",...
 I don't know if you have tried this Apache, and in my previous post I did not have the link,...
    http://httpd.apache.org
It is pretty complicated,..at least to me,..There is a lot I do not understand

  I have wanted to make a web interface type program using a web language (probably PhP) that would be able to manipulate database information. Manipulate such as add new information, edit old information, etc. Once I figure out how to connect to a database and add, edit, remove information then I just have to figure out how to display it and I'm good. lol Sounds simple in theory. 
http://www.000webhost.com
http://creativeminds.webege.com
http://creativeminds.webege.com/phpBB3/index.php
 This 00webhost, dose give you the access, and the editors, to access your PHPbb data nases, and add or edit any of the scripts, etc. Which is why I decided to use them, this will give me the opportunity to explore this more,..
  I have a very poor (slow) internet connection, so it is not very convienent to try editing any data bases, and/or the html docs, online, plus if the connection "fails", even just second, I have to start over, I lose any changes I made,..
 So that led to me asking around , about a program, that would allow me to work off line, and someone suggested APache, ...So I can run and test any scripts, quickly off line,..if I like what I have, then I can upload it quickly, to the " real " data base, at 000webhost,...They are freehosting,...but do offer even better hosting, if paid,...
 It took a while to get the account started, and a draw back, is they offer no support to the "free" accounts, they recommend anyone useing a free account, know what they are doing, as there is no support, but they do have a good forum, where one can get help, it just may take awhile to get a response,.....
 That about all I can say now, but it seems like a good route, for anyone wanting to learn about this stuff and explore it,...
 Of course, makeing your own program,...but that would be way above my head,..I am stuck with useing software (open source),..that they provide,..or I can find,...makeing ones own program would be a whole different ball game !
 Guess thats about it for now,
from Garry

Garry,

Sorry if I came across a bit harsh. I was just worried that you may have left yourself open to an attack. If anyone tries connecting to a link with "localhost" in it then it will most likely look on their own system for the link. Therefore you will be fine if you are just working offline. I haven't messed much with PhP scripts but it is something that interests me. I have wanted to make a web interface type program using a web language (probably PhP) that would be able to manipulate database information. Manipulate such as add new information, edit old information, etc. Once I figure out how to connect to a database and add, edit, remove information then I just have to figure out how to display it and I'm good. lol Sounds simple in theory.

Good luck and share your knowledge please. I'm interested.

Schmoo

Thes are some links I was given for more information, about putting Dos, or QBasic games online,...they were sent by some of the people from http://www.FREEDOS.org
----------------------------



as freebasic (and freepascal, openwatcom, djgpp...)
are quite complete by now, you could consider using
your games in the "qbasic-style mode" of freebasic,
maybe with some porting... You could use the dosbox
Java applet port to run things in a web browser, or
somehow couple freebasic to some webapp technology.

No idea, I guess following site might work:
http://www.classicdosgames.com/online.html

should be sufficient. Think I played Warcraft 1 a while ago.
