Yesterday I downloaded and installed XAMPP Windows 1.7.4 from the Installer option onto my machine running Windows 7 Ultimate (although phpinfo says 'Windows NT ...6.1 build 7601 ((null) Service Pack 1) i586).
I then created a couple of small php files from Dreamweaver and placed these directly in the htdocs folder. However when I try to view the file in my browser (http://localhost/myfiles.php
) I am getting a 404 error.
I have started Apache & MySql running and can can navigate successfully to the XAMPP Control Panel (http://localhost/xampp/index.php
) & a few other files that came with the install, but not any of my own.
I have tried connecting with my Firewall turned off, and have run the port-check.exe file : Port 80 & Port 443 are boths showing as Apache Services, Status = System. (sorry I'm not sure if this is good or bad - I just thought this info might be relevamt from another thread)
I have checked the error.log file in C:\xampp\apache\logs but the file is empty. I did clear it down with the intention of starting my analysis with a 'blank slate' but despite the fact that I have had several 404 errors since, there is still nothing in there.
Below are my phpinfo settings, not sure if anthing here is relevant.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks a lot
