Accessing HtDocs

Postby ekuemoah » 15. May 2010 00:17


I just installed xampp on my computer. I saved a file to the htdocs document and tried to access it through the server using the http://localhost/ address. I got an error 404 message saying that the url is not found. I can only access the xampp file but not any other folder.

Are you sure, that you type in the right URL?

if you just type in http://localhost/ the index.php file will redirect you in the xampp folder, so your URL will change.
files directly inside your htdocs folder can be accessed by http://localhost/, not http://localhost/xampp/
