You should try "python -m http.server 8000" instead of "python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000"

In Python 3 (new version) there has been a replacement.

you type cd <path> where <path> is the place where you want to go, relative to where you are.

so for example cd server if you want to go to a folder called server (assuming that folder is inside the folder you are currently located).
