total newb to localhost

Postby BluesJamJim » 05. June 2014 10:53

Hello smart people...

I am a musician and not a sysAdmin or a RHCE,,,

I can design and put a site to a host, but now I find myself needing to test forms and other dynamic stuff. I tried CentOS but it would not load on my xp box, but XAMPP installed without a hitch...

So I am here, over my head, not knowing how to test my code. Apache and MySQL are started,, typing localhost gets me to the XAMPP page.

Where do I locate my "testSite" on my hdd, and do I use a fake domain name or??? I need a book or someone to point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance for any replies,, BJJ

Your test site is located in the xampp\htdocs folder. So assuming standard installation, http://localhost/index.php is equivalent to c:\xampp\htdocs\index.php
