Hello~ I am just starting out in web building and have a general basic
idea of what goes on. Thankfully I have a friend helping me out who has
a server and knows PHP, and HTML etc... I would like to know where I
can begin to know all the in's and out's of web development. We are
using Cpanel, and going through OSCommerce. I am just really unclear on
what happens from once I point my new domain to my friend Mikes server,
what happens from there? What are the steps? Where can I go to find out
this information? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you

Re: Where can I go to learn about open source web building

You might want to talk with your friend about it... But primarily this  
is what happens just with the simple setup:

You point domain to server,
server must have dns records for your domain,
a record is created in the webserver for your specific domain,
you are normally created an account on the webserver where your space  
will be,
an ftp and/or shell account is normally created,
you are also created a record in the mail server.
All of the server side information is handled by the admin.

Now for web development.... Read the manuals on the information, seek  
out tutorials, get beginners books to help you understand and just  
research all you can.
