XAMPP - Just starting! HELP!

Postby mcdowalr » 30. August 2006 01:57

Morning,

I am VERY new to Joomla/XAMPP. Dabbling a little with HTML/Dreamweaver and now want to progess!

I have installed XAMPP (Windows 2000 workstation) - all works fine and I can access the welcome page http://localhost/xampp/ and security etc.

I have unzipped Joomla and also Mambo to xampp/joomla and xampp/mambo, but I cannot access the index.php pages from each of theses locations they are:
http://localhost/xampp/joomla/index.php
http://localhost/xampp/mambo/index.php
I get the following error:

Object not found!
The requested URL was not found on this server. If you entered the URL manually please check your spelling and try again.

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.

Error 404
localhost
08/30/06 10:28:49
Apache/2.2.2 (Win32) DAV/2 mod_ssl/2.2.2 OpenSSL/0.9.8b mod_autoindex_color PHP/5.1.4

It even happens with the templates I copy and try to open.

Any help would be appreciated.
Many Thanks
mcdowalr

Please check your xampp/apache/logs/error.log and access.log for clues.
I have unzipped Joomla and also Mambo to xampp/joomla and xampp/mambo, but I cannot access the index.php pages from each of theses locations they are:

That should be xampp/htdocs/xampp/joomla or mambo
http://localhost/xampp/joomla/index.php
or
xampp/htdocs/joomla or mambo
http://localhost/joomla/index.php

Thanks Mate,

I just had another look at the URL and this works:

http://localhost/mambo/index.php

Redirects me to the Installation.

Thanks a Million for the quick reply.
