I am trying to create a custom story map journal which follows instructions on the following page: 


I acquired the four pieces of information required from my web map and online feature class and then downloaded the source code for a MJ story map off Esri, then edited the index.html and custom-scripts.js codes in atom with the following parameters:


Webmap ID = 20a22fe25369421bbfafb72ad5240d2a

Field name = ID

Layer ID = Venezuela_Cities_Key_facts_1513
App ID = be09c0763f274b80a52c308da1e17403&edit
I then saved both these codes, however the last step in the above link just says "now simply upload all the application files to your webserver." I'm fairly new to this and don't know much about even creating your own web server. Is there any step by step instructions for A. Setting up your own free web server and B. How to upload all necessary app files to that web server and of course how to get it up and running after that.
