I'm also a VERY noob to working with a local server, but I'm building a website that needs servicer side scripts and MySql so I guess I'll learn.
XAMPP Control Panel V 2.5.8
XAMPP for Windows V 1.7.3
And I am not running as a service.
have my browser (Firefox) connecting properly to localhost, BUT....
I installed xampp with all my other program files on c:/ drive, without realizing that htdocs (where wampp apparently stores all the files generated by the user) is a subdirectory of the main xampp directory. Normally, all of my text files (html, js. css, etc) are stored on the d:/ drive. With current partitioning, I don't have enough room to store all these files on the c: drive.
SO, how do I move the htdocs subdirectory to d:/ drive, and reroute the server to look for these files on d:? Of course, the other alternative is to uninstall and reinstall Apache on the d: drive, but after all the trouble I had getting it to work, I really don't want to try that and maybe spend another couple days just on installation!!!
Please tell me it's possible to have xampp program files on one drive and user generated files on a different drive.
