Ok, as a follow up to getting started in this field as using Repairshopr.com as a guide, where do I write and save server side code if I'm using Godaddy hosting?

I noticed they PHP and MySQL in the hosting panel and I can create databases (which  don;t know how to do yet). But as I go through the process of learning HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, PHP (if that's what I should be learning) and MySQL, I'm confused on where to store the backend code.

Can I write this using Dreamweaver and upload it to Godaddy as I did with some basic HTML or does the PHP, My SQL need to created some other way.

I appreciate answering these basic question, but I'm at square one and I don't mind learning what I need to, but most of this is very hard to wrap my mind around right now.  I think I understand the pieces I need, just need to learn them and how to save them.  

Thanks

Mark,

Welcome.  Assuming that you have not setup sub-domains, yet, you would put them in the web root "public_html/www".

I will not get into specifics in this post on how to organize your file structure, but it is always a good idea to put any files that have login credentials into an include file that is outside of the web root, so it is not easily accessible to the public.

Regarding Dreamweaver, yes you can use it for your development and uploading, however in my experience with GoDaddy hosting, it is not always the easiest interface as GoDaddy only allows SSH/SFTP access from one IP address at a time.  If you are only every going to upload your files from one location, then you should be okay, but if the IP assigned by your internet provider is dynamic, it can and likely will change at some point.
