Put your files into the htdocs folder the clear your browsers cache. That should work for you.

I have a question about what to do AFTER that.... how would one then get to the controls of XAMPP? Such as myphpadmin and the like.

Thanks in advance,

OBTW - installed this package last night and it worked like a dream... I am really looking forward to testing my webpages without having to load them up to an external server.

Hi jimbo and itmonkey,
Here's what I do:

1. Go to "\installed-xampp\htdocs\" folder.
2. Rename "index.html" to "xampp.html".
3. Make a new folder called "welcomes" and move all the "index.*.*" named files to that folder.
4. Now your htdocs folder is ready for whatever you'll give it - put your "index.htm" or "Default.htm" files as the main page in that folder, and carry on from there.
5. Now how to access the XAMPP setup page? Remember the file rename in 2nd step? ;) Run:
Code: Select all
http://domainname.com/xampp.html

How to run PHPmyAdmin?
http://domainname.com/phpmyadmin


At the end, please password-secure your XAMPP initialisation page, and phpmyadmin by following the instructions given in XAMPP setup package.
