Accessing Your Test Site(s)

Okay, great, now we have all that software installed. But how do we use it?

First, open the "Web-Developer Controller" that you put on the desk top. Look at the top left. You want to see, and should, if Apache and MySQL are running. If they are, you're just about ready. If not, select Apache, then click on the "Start Service" button. Within a few seconds it should change to "Running." Now select "MySQL" and start it.

Fabulous, we have the software ready for us. Now let's get us ready.

Fire up your favorite browser. In the Address field type in http://localhost/drupal/< to access your "root" database. Since you've done everything right, you're now into your Drupal database.

Congratulations! Now the work begins.
