Debian 8 on a galaxy s4 is interresting. Do you have a link to a website?

In my house windows 10 but also apple devices are only allowed via a seperate guest wifi network.

With static we mean that the response is not generated on the fly by a programming language. The most common way of doing a static website is to create HTML and serve them with a simple web server. This site is static: https://getnikola.com although they all look the same from a presentation perspective :D

Tested 7.2 beta 64bit in VirtualBox (5.0.24) this morning.
Feels stable.

Two things I don't like: development stuff like postgre and QT tools installed by default.
I don't think it belongs in a distro's base install.
Second Firefox as default browser, this is a personal thing, the current releases of Firefox use google servers to check the sites you visit. In my opinion this is a big privacy leak that's why I switched to Midori.

One bug I found, if you click on the picture in de xfce menu to edit your profile picture you will get an error.
Failed to edit profile. Failed to execute child process "mugshot" (No such file or directory)

Welcome!

Building your first website is an awesome experience! There are mostly two kinds of websites, static and dynamic. Static websites are made of content that doesn't change, its always the same. In dynamic websites, the request is processed by a programming language for creating a response, and the output can be different depending on anything you want.
For static websites, the common technology is the HTML markup language, CSS for the visual design, and you can use Javascript for some fancy features (animations, menues, image effects, etc).
For a dynamic website, you would also need a programming language, I would recommend Python.
A CMS (content management system) like Wordpress is a website of the second class, written in PHP. The easiest way to get up and running is using a hosted solution provided by a 3rd party, for example wordpress.com. They take care of the website administration and you only care about the content. Customizing the looks of a wordpress site is well documented.
It is possible to install wordpress or other CMS yourself, it is challenging and requires system administration knowledge level. A challenge like this one would teach you a lot of tricks and the inners about Linux.
For each of the solutions I described, you will likely need to learn HTML and CSS. So I would start there. Using a hosted solution is probably the easiest. Finally, doing everything by yourself is the hardest, and as usual, the most rewarding.

HTH, Rodrigo

Hello Rodrigo,

Thanks a lot for your reply, it's really instructive. I have never seen a static website I think... Do you have a link that can show me what is it?
Thank you in advance :)

Hi and welcome, AugustinG.

Wordpress and other content managing systems usually reside on a server, and are managed through a web interface. So you would log in to the system using a browser, like Firefox, and use the web based tools.

Simple html documents can be created locally using an application like LibreOffice Writer (save as html), then uploaded to your server.

None of this is really specific to Linux, these applications would work much the same across operating systems.

Hello everyone,

I'm a newbee Linux user and I'm enjoying myself in it :D I'm completely new with this system and i'm looking for tips in order to create my own website.
What's the difference between linux and windows for example? Can I create a website with the same technologies? Like wordpress or an other kind of CMS? Does it exist?
Thanks for you help!

Before you go nuts trying to install drivers, you may find that CUPS will recognize it by plugging it directly into the computer. After that, you should be able to set the wireless settings.

Hello, I'm new to slackware and was hoping someone could help me track down a printer driver for a canon pixma mg2950 wireless. There is a linux source file driver on the canon site but i don't know if that is appropriate, also if it is how do i go about installing it? Any help much appreciated, Brian.
