Can't get server to work and wouldn't know how to use it anyway....
After a long and difficult troubleshoot with some people over in the newbie forum (special thanks to you guys, you know who you are :) ) I was finally able to finish this tutorial for setting up a server on CentOS.
I am not sure everything installed correctly even though it seemed like everything was going pretty well. If you look on page 7 it tells you at the very end that you can now go to <my IP Address>:8080 to use ISPConfig to configure your new server but when i got to that address all i get is a blank page with this code on it:
I have posted in their forums but they have been pretty unresponsive and after the immense support i got in the newbie forum i feel not only more comfortable posting here but also feel like my problem will be resolved faster.

My second problem is that even if this was working the way i wanted it to I still have no idea how to get my HTML code up on the server so it displays when i got to my website (i also need help making godaddy tell my domain names to be linked to my specific server).
My end goal for this server is for me to be able to write and test HTML, CSS, and other code on a laptop and upload it to the server so i can edit my website remotely (if this is too hard i can still write code on my CentOS box but i really wanted to be able to remotely upload code and other media to the server).
I'm sorry if this feels like i'm asking you guys to explain all of server administration to me, but i really want to learn this and get my problem fixed so i can get to uploading my website.
Note: If someone has a better guide for making a server on CentOS and thinks that completely restating from scratch is the best option then i am not terribly against just reinstalling CentOS from scratch and trying it over again. Right now i have the Desktop version because it was easiest for me to deal with and i was able to copy and paste outputs to from it to this forum easily instead of typing it up from my laptop that i'm on.
Thanks so much!
