Where do i put my files?

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

Where do i put my files?

Postby spaarks » 23. December 2008 18:22

I installed xampp OK, except for firezilla which I don't like (I use coreftp), and status says activated.
But where do I copy my files?
Can I create multiple folders for different applications - eg localhost/xampp/smf, localhost/xampp/phpbb etc?

thanks

But where do I copy my files?

Just look into "readme_en.txt" --> "Step 4".

I don't understand what the step 4.
However I made new folder c:\xampp\smf and copied the smf installation files to there.
When I go to http://localhost/xampp/smf I get 404 error.

You must put the files in "c:\xampp\htdocs\smf" and request them with "http://localhost/smf/".

I took a week's rest! When I came back I immediately saw my mistake.
Thank you for your advice, makes it a lot simpler than the xampp documentation.

Here it's my huuuuuuuuuuuuuuge problem!
I already installed XAMPP and also a PHPBB3 forum on it but.. how can my friends visit it?
It's on localhost - so only those from the local network can see it but when I give them the link they say they can't see anything!
What's wrong then??
I can visit my forum and it's working properly but..it will be useless if they can't visit it!
Should they stop their skypes before trying to enter or what?
And is there a way to change the port that xampp is useing? I mean... what's the point if all of them must stop skype??
please help me!

Check out my article on Port Forwarding. http://www.myownserver.info/index.php/step-4-additonal-settings/8-port-forwarding.html
If you're not using a router, then scroll down to how to open ports in Windows firewall, assuming you aren't using another firewall of some sort.

That should fix it for you. Please post back and let us know.

Step 4 in readme_en.txt contains an mistake in the latest version. You can find this at step 4:

Code: Select all
- C:\xampp\htdocs\test.php => http://localhost/test.php
- C:\xampp\myhome\test.php => http://localhost/myhome/test.php


correct it should be this:

Code: Select all
- C:\xampp\htdocs\test.php => http://localhost/test.php
- C:\xampp\htdocs\myhome\test.php => http://localhost/myhome/test.php


I already sent an PM to Kay, hope it is changed in the next version.

This page perhaps will provide a more accurate answer to this question:
http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-windows.html#1168

I highly recommend reading the following pages and searching these forums before creating a new topic or posting a reply and also remember that Google is your best friend - most of us use these three methods to perhaps garner fresh information that we perhaps have not visited for a while to help us refresh our knowledge.

Please enjoy XAMPP.
