Looking at the ElevateX web site I suspect that you have bought a CMS system without hosting, which seems the wrong way to go about building a web site.
a) You will have to learn all the server stuff that is usually dealt with by the host, before you can build a web site.
I think that you need to clarify your objectives:
- Do you want to be a server techie?
- Do you want to learn to develop web sites with HTML, CSS etc...
- Do you want to focus on the design of web sites (possibly using a hosted CMS system)?
Of course, these are not exclusive options. Some people do all three, but many people focus on the objectives that suit there interests and temperament.
