moving the default xampp files from htdocs

Postby spyrule » 17. December 2006 03:47

Hello,

Ok, so far so good, I love what I see, however I do not want to lose the default functionality of the xampp files that exist in the htdocs directory.
Is their a way to move these files, into another directory, and access it with a specific url?

Thanks in advance,

not with many editing of files for the xampp-welcomescreen and the status scripts, because the scripts for the welcomescreen and the status-scripts have path entry in relation to the \xampp\htdocs\xampp\ path.

I take it you want to use the htdocs directory for your web site.

Just replace all the files in the htdocs directory with your own files. They are only redirects anyway to the htdocs\xampp directory.

Then to call the default XAMPP files just use this address:
http://localhost/xampp/

To use your own files now, just use:
http://localhost/
