I am pretty much a novice with Apache but have been working with Joomla for 8 years developing Joomla websites. I do a lot of my work offline and was using 1.7. I was wanting to start working with Joomla 3 but it takes a higher version of PHP than 1.7 has. I unintalled 1.7 and installed 1.8 and everything is running. When I try to access a site using localhost I am getting a page that says "Object Not Found!" and offers me a link to localhost where it brings up the xmapp admin site.
With my old Xmapp 1.7 I never had that trouble, all I had to do was type in Localhost/website folder and the site would come up in my browser.
Is there something I did not install or need to re configure to get my folders in htdocs to display using localhost?
Thanks for any help.
