Hi asaf (there is ALWAYS time for a welcome line, especially if you want to request for help. That's a matter of politeness),

how do you open/request the files?
What does your browsers address bar show if you just get the plain code?

best wishes,

You do not need to include the "htdocs" in your URL. If there is a file in the htdocs folder you want to display, you can simply put http://localhost/index.php

hi,
I tried to do that - doesn't work for me. when I put http://localhost/index.php it jumps to http://localhost/xampp/index.php which is the homepage of my server but not the file.
I tried a test file called test.php the same path - and it gave me the same Eror message.
is it possible that my antivirus or firewall preventing xampp to operate?
thnx,
asaf

Hi asaf,

Sure, it worked perfectly. The XAMPP index.php file makes a redirect to the \xampp\htdocs\xampp\ subfolder.

Make a new test.php file with the following code
Code: Select all
<?php
$var = "Hello World!";
echo $var;
?>

and save it in C:\xampp\htdocs\
Now you can request it with the URL http://localhost/test.php and should echo out Hello World.

No, it is all about requesting the file the right way. Everything which starts with file:// in your browser doesn't work, because then your browser will load the file directly via from your harddisk and will not request it through your Webserver.
