I am trying to do the following task:
Put XOOPS Cube Legacy to your XAMPP †
Next, put these files to the specific directory.
By the previous tutorial, you became able to start mini-server in your PC. This server is called "local host" or "local server". Your local server has the same spec as real web server and is a good textbook to learn about server.
Now you can access to "http://localhost/". Apache is a web server embedded to XAMPP, and loads contents from the specific directory. This specific directory is called a document root and is under XAMPP directory that you have installed. If your OS is Windows, you may click "xampp httpdocs folder" menu from the start menu. In other OS, open the directory directly.
Copy "html" directory of the archive to this directory. And, rename "xoops". Now, you can access to this directory in "http://localhost/xoops/". In fact, this "document root" directory is binded to "http://localhost/". The concept of the document root is very important, and will appear again when you will try to install XOOPS Cube Legacy to real server in the near future.
The problem I am having is finding the "xampp httpdocs folder". All I see from my windows start menu for Xampp are:
I have tried searching for this and nothing comes up.
I am on Windows Vista.
