I have a couple of simple questions. I am new to developing websites, with my only previous experience is some "very" basic HTML ones a fair few years ago! However I have christmas off from doing my PhD and so I am going to do something productive!

I have got Silverstripe to install onto my computer with very little problems (on vista aswell!), and I am planning on running through the tutorials etc. However I want to develop the wesbite offline and then upload it to a host later on. Is this possible? Or does all the development of the wesbite have to be done "live"? If I can upload later on, how do I go about doing it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks

Welcome to Silverstripe !

You can develop the entire site on your local server. Transferring the site to a different host is a matter of uploading the files, copying the database and changing the settings in the _config.php file.

Good luck !

Thanks very much for your reply!

Is there a tutorial for this anywhere?
