folder missing from Apache index

Postby barnabas » 15. May 2010 03:32

I am using xampp-lite version 1.7.2 for windows, Vista with Firefox 3.6.3.
I copied a zip file into a folder under my xampp directory, unzipped the file and was able to see all of the files from the zip archive.
I then made several changes to some of the files and saved everything.
When I tried to load the page I got a 500 error. I went back and checked the changes I had made and they were fine.
But I could not load the page. I then went back and eliminated part of the path of the address until I came to the Apache Index of the site and there was a missing folder. I can see the missing folder under explorer but not in the index. I also checked the folder properties of the missing folder but was the same as all the other folders. I have several other sites in the main xampp folder and everything is working fine and I can see all of the folders and files.
Does anyone have any ideas.

check your Apache error.log file.
Most common this happens after some bad changes in the Apache config or an uncorrect .htaccess file

Thank you for your reply. I will check the log file and the .htaccess file.
