Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

Newbie question...

Postby Uchiha John Ryan » 19. October 2007 05:21

Hi.

I downloaded XAMPP to learn PHP. I was able to follow the first part of the installation documentation and successfully viewed the localhost page (to check Apache). But when I tried viewing a PHP script through the localhost, the page prompted an "Object not found" error. I copied the same sample PHP script from the documentation and saved it in the default folder (xampplite\htdocs). Is there something else that I've missed out?

Thank you very much in advance.

Then you are not using the correct URI for that script, or that script is not at the correct place.

I copied the installation files in E:\CustomizedFolder\xampplite\ and saved the .php file in E:\CustomizedFolder\xampplite\htdocs\.

The .php file I copied from the documentation was:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "_//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

<head>
<title>Hello World</title>
</head?

<body>
<p><?php echo "Hello World"; ?></p>
</body>

</html>



Is there anything wrong with it?

Thank you very much for your reply. I really appreciate it.

What's the URI you are using in your browser?

"error.log"?

Sorry I wasn't able to reply last time.. I checked the link that you gave me and I'm not sure if I got it right. The address that I typed in on the address bar is http://localhost/helloWorld.php. Is that the URI?

I copied the installation files in E:\CustomizedFolder\xampplite\

OK, to be sure that's really your DocumentRoot... Open "http://localhost/xampp/phpinfo.php" and search for "DOCUMENT_ROOT":
--> Is this "E:\CustomizedFolder\xampplite\htdocs"?

and saved the .php file in E:\CustomizedFolder\xampplite\htdocs\
...
The address that I typed in on the address bar is http://localhost/helloWorld.php

Now open a command prompt (cmd.exe) and execute this command:
Code: Select all
dir "E:\CustomizedFolder\xampplite\htdocs\helloWorld.php"

--> What's the output?

..I also checked the error log and found this:

[Mon Oct 22 11:16:50 2007] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] script 'E:/CustomizedFolder/xampplite/htdocs/helloWorld.php' not found or unable to stat

I'd really appreciate your help.

The value for DOCUMENT_ROOT is E:/Conel/xampplite/htdocs. When I tried running it on the command prompt, I got the message: 'helloWorld.php' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file

Please use exact this comand in the shell (one line):
Code: Select all
dir "E:\CustomizedFolder\xampplite\htdocs\helloWorld.php"


(And not only "helloWorld.php").

By the way, my customized folder is Conel..
