how to create a sharepoint site,pages,edit the page and page templates in MOSS207

Administration Guide For a Internet Site
Office SharePoint server 2007 Internet portal site
My portal site is a Windows SharePoint services site collection containing a top level site and several child sites (aka sub sites) underneath it.
My Site Architecture looks like the following diagram

Creating a portal site using the Windows Sharepoint services central Administration application
If we want to create a portal site from the scratch then first of all we need to create a new web application. Creating a new web application and creating site collections, top level sites can be done from the SharePoint central administration application.
Let's open the SharePoint 3.0 central administration application from the start menu and Navigate to the application management page (a link is there at the top of the page) and here we will see a link like create/extend web application-which is basically used to create or extend a web application.

Clicking on this link will bring a page where we can create a new web application.
On the Application Management page, in the SharePoint Web Application Management section, click Create or extend Web application.
On the Create or Extend Web Application page, in the Adding a SharePoint Web Application section, click Create a new Web Application.
On the Create New Web Application page, in the IIS Web Site section, select one of the following:
• In the Description box, accept the given description or type a new description for the Web application.
In the Port box, accept the given value or type a new value for the port the Web application will use.
Leave Host header as Blank.
In the Path box, accept the given path
. In the Security Configuration section, under Authentication provider, select NTLM (which is by default checked)
Under Allow Anonymous, select Yes.
Under Use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), select No (which is by default checked)
In the Load Balanced URL section accept the URL provided.
In the Application Pool section go with default values, and provide username and password in Configurable section.
In the Database Name and Authentication section give a meaningful name as Database Name.

Leave any other sections as Default and click OK.
Now a web Application will be Created. [Note: This process will take few minutes]

After filling up the data that are required to create a new web application we will have a link called site collection. This is the link that will create a site collection inside this newly created web application. So we have a top level site here. Now we can start developing on this top level site or even we can create sub sites/child sites underneath of this site.

In Create Site Collection Page Title and Description spacify your Toplevel site Tile you would like (For Example “Start”) and fill Description.
Most Important Section is Selection of Template Section .In our contest we are selecting Publishing Portal (In “Select a template” section click on Publishing button, in this collaboration, publishing portal template has come).
In Primary Site Collection Administrator section spacify the administrator for this website collection. Click OK. [Note: This process will take few minutes]
