Object Not Found

Postby smith772 » 09. November 2011 23:45

I am totally new to xampp and I seem to have a setup (path) issue.

I installed the latest version of XAMPP
I can see through the control panel that both Apache and MySQL are running
I extracted my website to c://localhost/xampp/htdocs/springshomes/
When I go to http://localhost/xampp/ I can see the Welcome screen no problem
But when I go to http://localhost/xampp/htdocs/springshomes/index.php I get the following error:

Object not found!

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

Apache/2.2.17 (Win32) mod_ssl/2.2.17 OpenSSL/0.9.8o PHP/5.3.4 mod_perl/2.0.4 Perl/v5.10.1

What am I missing?

Well, you just don't understand the requesting destination.

If you request http://localhost/xampp/ your apache will look into the folder c:\xampp\htdocs\xampp\, because htdocs is the DocumentRoot, the base folder for your apache.

My friend Altrea is absolutely correct.

To help you and all new users of XAMPP it is advisable to read the following:
readme_en.txt file in the xampp folder.

Good luck. :)
