xampp runs, but I can't get to xampp main page!

Postby steveo » 25. March 2010 15:33

Hello everyone,

A weird little problem has stopped me in my tracks. A few days ago, I installed Smarty and tested it out. Got a few errors, which I resolved. However, now when I try to go to the xampp main page (by typing "localhost" into my browser's address field), the browser takes me to the same error it displayed when I was testing out Smarty. The address field still says "http://localhost/" but the xampp main page is not displaying.

Proably easily solved, but I'm stumped. Does anybody have an idea how I can solve this?

Thanks in advance!

Don't know. Maybe it's easier to help you, if you post us your error message!?
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

I'd show you a screen shot, which would probably be the best way to describe the problem, but I can't even figure out how to paste a screen shot into the post.

So I'll try to describe the problem with words. The error message I think is irrelevant, but I'll post it anyway:
Warning: require(Smarty.class.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\xampp\htdocs\index.php on line 8

Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'Smarty.class.php' (include_path='.;C:\xampp\php\PEAR') in C:\xampp\htdocs\index.php on line 8


My problem is that that is what comes up when I type "localhost" into my browser's address. i.e., the xampp main page doesn't come up, just the error message. The browser address field still says "http://localhost/". And, to repeat, the error is no longer an issue because I already fixed it.
