Hi All,

My name is Chris Taylor and I am new to this forum.
I have tried(months) to get XAMPP and Wordpress running.
I keep on getting this message:
Index of /xampp/blog
Name Last modified Size Description

Parent Directory -
wordpress/ 25-May-2008 20:33 .
If I then click on Parent Directory, it takes me to the XAMPP control panel.
If I click on wordpress, I get the following message:


Object not found!
The requested URL was not found on this server. The link on the referring page seems to be wrong or outdated. Please inform the author of that page about the error.

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.

Error 404

Please help
Thanx
Chris

Never (i repeat: N E V E R) create, put, extract your own project files into the \xampp\htdocs\xampp\ folder!
Make your own folders directly in your \xampp\htdocs\ folder

What you mean is the XAMPP Administration Panel. The XAMPP control panel is the little program where you start and stop the XAMPP components.

Very common a wordpress configuration issue. Is that a backuped version if an existing wordpress instance?
If so, check the paths in the configuration-file and database sets and maybe redirects in .htaccess files.

Take a look into your \xampp\apache\logs\error.log file for a more detailed error report.
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!
