I'm new to this blog stuff, so please bear with me. So I'm hosting a website from home. I want to make it into a blog, sort of.

Here is an example of what I mean. http://www.andrewsimz.com

I want to make something like this. Kind of like a personal blog. I understand you need a database, and you need some php code to write to this database. I think you also need an SQL server? I have no clue how to do this. Can some please point me in the right direction?

Please Help Me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes...you will need to have PHP and MySQL installed on your server.

I would then suggest using a program such as WordPress (free) for your blog.

Yes, just use wordpress. It's easy to install.

Yep WP is relatively easier to install, I really like its great interface and powerful features.

I had to reformat my server, so it'll be a while before I can install it, but thanks you guys.

This is still not solved.
