    Here is a real newbie question, I don't even know if I'm asking the right question or if I'm using the correct words but
    I'll try to explain ...

    I have a VPS and a video in my PC.
    I want to upload the video to my VPS and then hotlink to it.
    For example if my VPSs IP is 123.456. after the video is uploaded I want to get a link
    like http://123.456./folder/myvideo.mp4

    Can somebody explain how can I do this ?

    The VPS is a Windows VPS or a Linux VPS?

    Install XAMPP/WAMP, set it to public and put it in the public_html or www folder.

    OK so I've installed XAMPP and set everything up and put the video file in www folder.
    If I browse to http://123.456 I'm prompted with the username and password and I can login to XAMPP
    dashboard but if I browse to http://123.456/folder/video.mp4 I get this error:

    So I'm stuck at this point. Anyone cares to throw me a hint on what should I do next ?

    I'm not sure how running XAMPP on your Windows box is going to allow you to share a folder to the web.

    Here is how I do it. Google Installing WordPress on Windows 2K3 and there are several good tutorials that will walk you through the steps to install WP. It's relatively painless and all free downloads. Then you can drop your video on that WP blog.
