    Well I want to start coding PHP on my server but how do I get this shit activated on Xampp to start? Here's a pic of what I'm talking about: http://i.imgur.com/fKcgJzV.jpg Couldn't really find a answer on Google. I tried without activating anything but nothing changes I'm tired of looking at this Xampp page lol!

    if you are using windows os you should have got the xampp control panel setup. run the application and start the required services.

    What is really your question?
    Run xampp, start the services, upload your files then navigate to: localhost/test/index.php
    Change test to the folder name that has the website files.

    if apache and mysql are running in your xampp control panel check the error logs in control panel.

    I think you are totally confused here. Xampp works locally. It is driven towards local development so you make changes on your pc and fine tune the website to your needs before deploying on a real server. For people to go to your website, the files need to be on a real server somewhere and all servers have php/mysql/apache/whatever u need installed so there is no need to do anything else, just upload and go to your domain name.
