noob help: can't load php test file with xampp

Postby JayTee » 01. January 2010 06:04

Hello,

I just installed the newest version of xampp for windows. I'm running vista. The main screen for xampp comes up when I go to http://localhost. My Status page says everything is activated except smtp and ftp service. I made a sample php file and saved it as sample.php in the htdocs folder. When I enter http://localhost/sample.php I get an error message "Object Not Found!". Thank you in advance for any help.

Make sure when you saved your file from your editor that it did not save it as sample.php.php as I have been able to reproduce this by saving a sample.php file I created in my text editor as sample.php.php then calling the file in my browser by http://localhost/sample.php - the error message in my error.log file is identical to the one you have above.
