Sorry if I ask basic questions but I’m pretty basic.
I downloaded Instant WordPress and am now many hours into designing/programming my website.
1.) By just downloading Instant WordPress to my desktop computer, is it running off-line where no-one can see it? The address bar has an IP address so is this public?
2.) I’m moving soon. If it works off the IP address how will it know it’s me when I move?
3.) I never changed the Admin/Password sign in. Nor was ever asked to create a username/new password or even sign up for WordPress. Should I have?
4.) Should I back up the files somewhere? How? Where? I’d kill myself if I had to start all over.
5.) I read on another post that photos might or are lost when you upload the Instant WordPress to a hosting server to go live? Is this true? I sure as heck don’t want to have to input them all in again. Some of my photos are input by the WordPress page “input media” button and some are hosted outside WordPress and <img src…> into the code. Have I just screwed myself?
6.) Should I get an outside host now? Can I work offline there just as easily as I do now with Instant WordPress? I was trying to save the monthly hosting cost until I was ready.
7.) I’m buying a new laptop tomorrow. Instant WordPress is now on my desktop computer. Do I install Instant WordPress on the new laptop and then it will know it is me by my IP address?….so I can work on both computers.
8.) Anything else a newbie should know about developing my site on Instant WordPress and then finding out I’m the only red headed pig at the county fair and destined for the slaughter house?
Thanks in Advance!
