I want to launch my own website one day.

I can use Wordpress, but I felt like it was too restrictive, and I wanted to have more control over the design.

That's why I have to learn how to code html, css, and javascript.

Now keep in mind that I don't know what the hell I'm doing.

That's why I'm trying to code as little as possible, because I'm too dumb for this.


The programs I'm currently using:
  • Figma
  • Gimp
  • Visual Studio Code
Some guy suggested I should try Codepen.

iu


This guy is literally me

I'll update this whenever I feel like it.

TL;RD: Just hide this thread tbh

how about we start you off with how to build an incel style site


l1 :

A VPS is a physical server, split into virtual stand alone non shared servers

using virtualization software.

therefore the service provider only takes care for
the hardware and network connection.


l2:

from a VPS provider choose minimum VPS specs :

1cpu core, 1 or 2 gigs RAM, SSD drive gb/s network connection.

server distribution ubuntu 20.04.x, deploy now to install the server,

next in the server info page are the : IP, user, pass needed to run ssh shell commands.

l3
auxilary tools :
generates random passwords


loging into the server 1st time using a terminal emulator :

ssh root@ip

prompt yes

prompt pass.

l4
auxilary tools :
generates random passwords
https://www.random.org/passwords/


l5 : software
any OS on your machine can be used

text editor
notepad++ or textmate or sublime text.

sftp client

this uploads and DLs files to your server :
fileZilla

browser

terminal emulator
this is the shell, where you type in commands using a command line interface.
SSH = secure shell, used to connect to the shell securely(encrypted)
*refer to pdf 4 config instructions.
cmd+shift+u to open terminal on mac

for windows : cmder from cmder.net and choose the full version
extract the 7z file into a cmder named folder. and create a shortcut to the
cmder.exe file.
right click its title bar to access settings:

startup, specified named tast,{bash::bash}
on startup, environment, type :
set HOME=c:\cmder
on keys & macro, allhotkeys, type ctr, click ctrl+w, and change ctrl to win
from the dropdown box at the bottom

key & macro, paste, set paste mode 1 and 2 to multilines. and save the settings.

save the directory : on the cmd : ^ mkdir .ssh
you wont see it with ^ls cause it starts with a dot so it is hidden.
use ^ ls -al to display it.

mark a text in the cmder to copy it from the cmder, right click to paste

login to your server : ^ ssh root@ipadress

l6 to l10

root@hp:~#
~ = homedir,# root user, $ non root user
user@VPSname:dir prompt

never log in as root user unless u need to run an installation script
instead creat a user with root privelages using sudo.


commands :
1 adduser add a user to the vps
2 apt-get install or remove software on the vps, update, upgrade and dist-upgrade are also used.
3 cat display and combine files
4 cd change to the current users home directory
5 cd .. Go back one directory level, can be used to go back multiple levels: cd ../../
6 cd / change to the "root directory" of the VPS
7 chmod change file and directory permissions
8 chown change file and directory ownership
9 cp copy
10 logout logout of the vps
11 ls list files and directories, use with -l for a detailed list or -a to display all, e.g. ls -l or ls -a or ls -la
12 mkdir create a directory
13 mv move or rename a file or directory
The Definitive WordPress Course - Command List
14 nano a basic editor
15 passwd change the current users password
16 pwd print working directory, display current directory path
17 rm remove or delete a file or directory
18 rmdir delete 'remove' a directory
19 service to start, stop and restart services that are running on our vps
20 sudo invoke root privileges, sudo is typed before the command
21 touch create a blank new file
22 usermod Modify groups user belongs to, must be used with the -a -G flags. Lowercase a UPPERCASE G
23 visudo edit the sudoers file

example :
john@xps ~$ ls -l

drwxr-xr-x andrew andrew date file or dir name :
d = directory or - for file
owner group user permission for file : read? write?execute ? 4,2,1
777 means all users can do anything to the file.

l12
on the first login to the server the user is prompted to save an ssh key on his local machine
if this happens again, make sure the credentials were types correctly, or this could be a man in the middle attack
or you reinstalled the server.

apt get : this command can download or install new linux packages :
apt-get update //DL update packages
apt-get upgrade //install updates
apt-get install // install packages

visual studio is shit. stay the fuck away from it if you value your sanity
huge cope, visual studio code is the best text editor. If you mistook Visual Studio for Visual Studio Code then you're a massive boomer. And for something like a blog if you dont know coding just go with Wordpress

I'm learning other methods because I felt like I couldn't do what I wanted with Wordpress. I have an idea and I want to bring it to life.

CS freshman here. If you are thinking that you can make a good website by learning Html, CSS, JavaScript, then think again. What will most likely happen is that you will give up halfway. Instead, I would recommend learning bootstrap, some PHP and WordPress page builder like Elementor.

Coding a website from ground up is much harder than you think.

You will also need to learn SSH. Reply to this message if you want to know more. By the way, I am not an expert either. I only have one forum website like this one and a wordpress blog.

I am a CS freshman. Maybe we can help each other? Collaborative programming is very important. These days, it is almost impossible to make some good shit alone.

Brackets is much better than VS Code. Even Sublime Text or Atom is better. If you need to learn to use a code editor, it's not worth it. The best stuff is Jetbrains products like PyCharm, Intellij IDEA etc.

Mostly C. I am learning the basic concepts at the moment such as programming syntax, data structures etc. Made some small programs to cheat on my exams lol. Online exams are pretty much bullshit.

It doesn't matter which lang you pick up. The core concepts are the same. For example, it will take you around 8-12 months to fully learn a lang like C or Python but after that, you can learn a new one in a month or two. If you have a high IQ, it will take even less.

I wonder if even xenforo itself could be used as a decent CMS with the pages feature. One would need to master the template syntax though. Add-ons are also excellent support tools.
