I know a lot of you are going to get really fed up when I post this for asking really really stupid questions but I have been trying to set this up for two full days and am ready to scream!!!!
I'll start at the beginning, I am a complete novice and am currently learning PHP & mysql and in order to test/host locally I have downloaded XAMPP, I have installed everything ok (I think!) but I not sure where to upload my pages to in order to test them on the web browser. The book has told be to save them and edit them in the root directory but I'm not sure where it is.
When I go into browser I type in 127.0.0.1 I get the welcome page
I upload files to the htdocs folder and went to http://127.0.0.1/xampp/htdoc.index.html
but it cant be found
I have searched the forum posts but can find any body as stupid as me that has asked such a simply question so please please please help!!!!
Could you make your answers as basic as possible as I am also 37 week pregnant and I really do believe that pregnancy has made me complete stupid
Thanking you all in advance
