Apache can't find test file

Postby thevoid » 01. January 2007 20:30

Hi all, I know this must be a fairly common problem but I've looked through a load of the posts here first and read the faq and still can't get it working.

Basically, I've installed XAMPP and have Apache running. I have created a small HTML doc called test.html and placed it in \xampp\htdocs. When I try to browse for it in IE7 however, I keep getting 404 object not found.

I've tried both http://localhost/test.html and http://127.0.0.1/test.html and have tried everything from opening port 80 to disabling the firewall altogether but still no luck.

Must be making a simple mistake somewhere, would be grateful for any advice...

Thanks,
Paul.

There is no file "test.html" in your DocomentRoot.

I'm sorry, but I'm (obviously) very new to this and do not know what this means... would be grateful for elaboration :)
