I have just installed Apache and MySQL using the XAMPP installer, and it appears to be working okay, but when I type in http://localhost/ in my browser and try to browse sites that are in the C:\inetpub\wwwroot directory, it just defaults back to http://localhost/xampp/ or else I get a 404 file not found error if I try to type sopmething in manyally like http://localhost/phpinfo.php. I know I'm doing something wrong - I just don't know what it is. I have disabled IIS, so I know that's not interfering. I also have my files and directories stored in C:\inetpub\wwwroot to start testing in PHP. Is that not the correct folder location to store my PHP files?
I've been a ColdFusion programmer for several years but am just starting to test the water with PHP and everything about it is completely foreign to me. I'm sure I will be spending much time on this forum Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
