Are you sure you have the file my_phpinfo.php
Or is it in the default location:C:\xampp\htdocs\php_mysandbox\my_phpinfo.phphttp://localhost/php_mysandbox/my_phpinfo.php
Please double check the location of the file and the URI you are using to access the file.
BTW the error log file is located in the default installation location of C:\xampp\apache\logs\error.log and if you have Apache running then you should see a 404 page not found error in this log file at the date and time you tried to access it (drag the file into your opened text editor to read it
If your error is from the web browser only then it is possible that Apache is not running so check using the XAMPP Control Panel that both Apache and MySQL have a green running
next to them.
