Object not found. Error 404

Postby novice » 22. July 2014 14:18

Hi ,
I installed xampp server and it works perfectly. However, when I access my php file (index.php) stored in (D:\xampp\htdocs\myproject) by using the url http://localhost/myproject/index.php. It gives me an error pasted below.

Will anybody please advice me, how to fix it; and how I may access my index.php file that includes only an echo statement.:)

Regards,

================
Object not found!

The requested URL was not found on this server. If you entered the URL manually please check your spelling and try again.

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.

Did you accidentally allow the system to name the file index.php.txt or something similar?

Apache does not lie.
Error 404 is thrown in 99,5% of all cases only if the file you are trying to request is not existent (in 0,5% of all cases because the developer itself fires this HTTP status for other reasons).

So a part of your information must be incorrect.
Either you are using the wrong URL
or your file is not saved at the correct path
or the file has the wrong file extension (hidden known file extensions in windows?)
or you have defined rewrites/redirects that route the request to a different location
or you have changed any fundamental on your Apache config (like redefining the DocumentRoot)
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

=======================
Yes, machine does not have the ability to lie. But, one day, we programmer may be able to learn her this ability:)

I checked it is right
or your file is not saved at the correct path
I checked it is at correct path.

I checked, it is not the case.

I did not modify any file
