Morning! Doing my very first loading of Xampp and install went well. In Windows 7 tried to open localhost in browser and received this error message:
Warning: require_once(C:\xampp\htdocs\drupal/includes/bootstrap.inc): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\xampp\htdocs\drupal\index.php on line 19
Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required 'C:\xampp\htdocs\drupal/includes/bootstrap.inc' (include_path='.;C:\xampp\php\PEAR') in C:\xampp\htdocs\drupal\index.php on line 19
This was a stock standard install until this and as a complete newbie - I'm stumped! Having checked the forum, Googled the error and chewed my nails - I'd appreciate any assistance... Thanks!
