WDYM: View a page through a web server in order to preview the results?
"When adding standard AJAX requests to your pages, you need to view that page through a web server in order to preview the results."
- How do you view a page through a web server?
- What does it mean to 'preview' results?
Thanks in advance. ✌️

Hey Samuel Kleos thanks for your question!
In the first or second video of this course we learnt that "AJAX is the process of sending a request to a web service, and receive a response back, and then do something with that response".
"Previewing results" in this case just means loading up the page to see it.
