Journey started with Local Host team of Mumbai WordCamp traveled by Indrayani train from Mumbai to Pune
speaker sessions well good multi track attended few of them and was networking with friends and sponsors
This is my first wordcamp of 2017
Pune wordcamp was really awesome made few more friends to my list
learned lot from speakers, attendees and organizers.
I won virtual reality glasses from Qualispace as a lucky draw.
I had a chance to meet Devin Walker is the founder of WordImpress, creators the GiveWP he is also organizer for WordCamp Sandiego.
If you would like to attend wordcamp , WordCamp Mumbai 2017 is happening on 25th and 26th of March 2017
after spending 24-48 hrs on issue, finally got it fixed
Just figured out what went wrong and what’s right when using wamp for “LocalHost”
Ports are important and secondly you should directly go to the menu option of wamp and click on local host
or you can directly type local host on your browser then click on your > Your Projects
What I did wrong was , I was writing my hello world php file and saving in the C/ wamp / www folder which
is proper but for rendering it properly and for opening file i did went directly to C / Wamp / www folder and opened that same document which save directly which is not the way you should open the projects
all you need to do the following things.
type : LocalHost
then click on your : Your Projects tab
and click on the file which you have saved your php in it.
if you got to the directory directly by clicking on C/wamp/www/YourHelloWorld page it won’t render in your browser
for that you need to do the above step
I want to start learning PHP because you are around the people of wordpress community and you do not know P of php that’s not good right,
If I know “PHP” then I can monetized my “PHP skill ,so went online on youtube to see “How to Learn PHP” ?
when a video came in suggestions tab of ‘Youtube’ , I came across a PHP 101 course by “John Morrison”
It is really a nightmare when you have spend almost 3 days and you are not able to install a local server on to your desktop machine, I installed XAMP firstly did installed everything pre-requisites installed properly but something went wrong that what I write in .php file is was not rendering in my browser which really sucked my mind but definitely i will fix that issue if I tell that to my wordpress and wordcamp friends will do that soon, then another day installed WAMP did everything as pre-requisites says that “Microsoft Visual C++ packages ” to run my wamp server properly , I do not know what that ports are but still I told my skype to stop using port 80 , and made it to port 7 which i don’t know what port 7 is going to do.
installed wamp properly after that i created test folder in “www” in wamp and saved my document .php file and when tried to run still it shows simple code which says ‘hello World’ but still it didn’t go through apache and showed me the excat code I wrote.
so , got solution from that training course by john morris which says he uses “Nitrous clould IDE” which has already shut down and company is claiming that the will be back with self hosted open sourse software, then when finding alternatives suddenly my mouse hovered to the site called “Cloud9” so now i am testing and trying and writing code on “Clould9”.
now lets see how i am going to fix my local host “XAMP” & “WAMP” issues.
if you are facing same issues you can use “cloud IDE” platforms or get a help from your techincal friend which knows how to fix this issues of ‘local host’ or go through a forum.
