HTTP Error 404. The requested resource is not found.[SOLVED]

Postby christineangles » 03. March 2012 21:53

I had some trouble installing XAMPP because I could not get the service on port 80 to stop. So upon suggestion I edited my httpd.conf file to use port 8000 instead of port 80. After doing this I was able to start the Apache service and see the "running" status in the XAMPP Control Panel. However, when I try to go to localhost/index.php or to localhost/test.php, I get the error "HTTP Error 404. The requested resource is not found.". I installed xampp in c:\xampp. If the control panel says the service is running, how can I get it to work. Is the correct thing to put in my browser window "localhost/index.php"? Is 8000 as a port ok? Thanks in advance for your help.

You need to add the port number to every address you type in your browser when you have changed the default port from port 80.
http://localhost:8000/index.php
