Can't find local host in browser

Postby schwabby » 12. December 2009 04:33

I successfully installed Xampp on my C Drive, I successfully installed wordpress in Xampp, I looked at my wordpress site, I added themes made adjustments everything was great.

But now I can't get back there. I was sure I bookmarked it, but I can't find it and no matter what I type in it can't seem to find it.

Here is the physical address:
C:// > XAMPP > xampp > htdocs > wordpress

Can someone tell me what the path would be in the browser window to access the site?
Thank you!

Missing support info - what XAMPP version and which Windows OS?
So assuming latest stable XAMPP version and Windows Vista.

Your files are located here then:
C:\xampp\xampp\htdocs\wordpress
you will not be able to access wordpress by typing anything in your browser except:
http://localhost/wordpress
assuming you have checked that Apache and MySQL are both showing as running in the XAMPP Control Panel.

The XAMPP Welcome Demo Page is at:
http://localhost/xampp/index.php


More helpful reading for new XAMPP users:
\xampp\readme_en.txt file

That worked thank you! It was not running in the Xampp control panel.
So that leads me to a new question.
Do I need to start that up each time I want to access my local server?

Thanks for being patient with a newbie in server issues!

Absolutely, every time you want to use your web server it has to be running just like any other application on your PC.
