I'm new to php programming and still learning. i installed xampp and both apache and mysql are indicated as running in the xampp control pannel. when i type http://localhost/ it takes me to the xampp main page.
but the php file i created using notepad wouldn't load. its a simple program with a single php line. i saved it in the htdocs folder ;
when i try to view this page the following error show up;
Object not found!
