Msterious redirect to XAMPP welcome page

Postby magendar » 30. April 2009 18:16

Dear folks,

I am encountering a peculiar problem. I have hosted a website on Joomla 1.5 in my local directory.
Clicking anywhere on the website redirects me to XAMPP 1.7.0 welcome screen.

I have deleted the index.htm file from the htdocs folder. Should I do anything different to make
by website work? Pls help.

regards,

Magendar

What is this local directory you mention?

Open the xampp\htdocs\index.php in your text editor and see what the code tells you.

The index.html does not redirect but the original XAMPP index.php redirects to the XAMPP Welcome Page - so either rename or delete the original XAMPP index.php file...

...then to go to the XAMPP Welcome Page you would type http://localhost/xampp/index.php
