Help!! Xampp install in Window 7 not working. 1.7.7 [SOLVED}

Postby phpbeginner123 » 14. October 2011 07:39

Hi,

I am a newbie. I follow the instructions to install Xampp using the installer into my window 7 system.

I start the Apache and has written a test script to test if it is working. .... apparently, it does not :(

Here is my story:

After installation, i am able to open up this page (url) =>http://localhost/xampp/index.php

I create a folder call "test" in htdocs folder and insert a file in this "test" folder called test_php_working.php.

Next, i open it in this url => http://localhost/xampp/test/test_php_working.php
it does not work and give me this error page:
The requested URL was not found on this server. If you entered the URL manually please check your spelling and try again.

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.
Error 404


i have checked the status and php is activated.
i even go through the effort to raise my UAC permission and try it again, same error on my test script.
then i try to disable the UAC control at the msconfig, restart my pc and try again, same error on my test script.

May i know what i have done wrong or did i miss out anything? :(

Please advise from any experts or experienced dudes here. Thanks a whole lot in advance.

Incorrect address as pointed out in the readme_en.txt file in the xampp folder.

Correct address is:
http://localhost/test/test_php_working.php

You can't click on a php file to open them as php files have to go through the server to be interpreted.

You can however open a php file in a text or code editor for reading and editing - right click and select to always open php files in your text (or code) editor, this will not effect opening them in a browser from a URL in the address. bar

Best wishes. :)
