I hope this is not too basic a question.

I have Ubuntu on my desktop with screem installed. I have an Ubuntu Lamp server which I have access to on the same subnet. There is a basic install of apache2 (/var/www/apache2-default) I want to open some files that I have created during a PHP tutorial.

Do I create a new site or open an existing one?
Should I just open the text files?

And more importantly how do I connect to it to edit.

I know it's really basic but I'm at a halt at the moment.
