http://localhost/xampp/ is default

Postby davea1958 » 09. August 2010 21:13

Installed xammp 1.7.3 to Windows 7.

When I type "http://localhost" into my Internet Exploder browser the URL changes to "http://localhost/xampp/". Then it shows the "xampp for windows status page.

My C:\xampp\apache\conf\httpd.conf file has these two lines.
DocumentRoot "C:/xampp/htdocs"
<Directory "C:/xampp/htdocs">

How do I get xammp to start in c:\xampp\htdocs and not in c:\xammp\htdocs\xammp?

In your htdocs folder is an index.php file.
This file does the redirect.

You can delete, change, rename... the file. Whatever you want to do with it.
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

Thank You! I thought I had looked at it. I must have looked at the index.html file instead. DOH!
