I am a total "Newbee" to web design. I am attempting to load Joomla!. I am working from "Joomla! for Dummies". I think I have performed all the instructions for loading Joomla! on my own computer. I have:
- downloaded XAMPP
- downloaded the compressed (zipped) Joomla module
- unzipped the compressed Joomla module and copied it to XAMPP(htdocs) directory as sub-directory (joomla)
- have the XAMPP Control Panel
Now should be able to log on to "http://localhost/joomla", to view the first Joomla installation page, but only receive message stating that it cannot be found
Need sinple answers, remember, I'a a newbee...
