I'm using the Lynda.com videos to learn PHP. I am trying to create my website within the xampp > htdocs > myfolder with a PHP file calling in the phpinfo(); command. From what I understood, I should be able to get to my site by going to http://localhost/myfolder/my_phpinfo.php. Nothing shows up! If I go to the console at http://localhost, I can click on the phpinfo link. Next step was typing in the full site directory http://localhost/E:/xampp/htcdocs/myfolder/my_phpinfo.php. The phpinfo code printed, but no actual information.
So two questions: how can I get my phpinfo for myfolder to show? and Is there not a shorter URL I could be using?
