hi all... now i have a new request for the geeks of this forum. i wish to build a personal website. it is to have a lot of data, pictures, and almost evrything one places in his/her personal site. so i want to know how to proceed. i also wish to know what are things like html, xml, php, mysql etc and how to utililise them to build my website. i have no idea about web designing, but i really wish to learn. so please tell me how i begin. in short, i want a step by step modus operendi on how an absolute novice goes about designing and creating a useful website he can show to people.
