I'm planning to install phpBB forums and wordpress blog on my webserver. THe problem is that I don't have a webserver yet. I'm still looking through various webhosts, researching the pros and cons of every webhost possible. So in the meanwhile, can I like somehow make my website offline, set up everything then upload it online so its ready when I finally get my webhost?
Yes, just build a site on your pc at home -- if you have XP Pro just install IIS and MySQL. Once your ready to get hosting all you have to do is restore the database and files on the host's machine and you're all set.
