The http local host page doesn't look like the instructions

Postby lastevns » 20. October 2015 11:33

Okay, my second time writing this (first time I timed out, yay!):

So I installed XAMPP 5.6.14 / PHP 5.6.14 and it loaded correctly on my Windows 8.1. However, when I loaded
Code: Select all
 http://localhost
INSTEAD of seeing the image the instructions show, like this: http://www.songwritersguild.com/what-im-supposed-to-see.png I INSTEAD get this: http://songwritersguild.com/what_i_see.gif. So, I uninstalled that version of XAMPP and installed XAMPP version 5.5.30 / PHP 5.5.30 hoping I would see the right localhost affirmation screen. But, nope. I see the same descrepancies regardless of which version I install.

So, I have no idea where to go from here with instructions. Can anyone help please?

You are already finished, your Xampp installation is running correctly. Unfortunately, the documentation is outdated.

Now put your own files and scripts into the htdocs folder and run them in your browser via localhost (i.e. http://localhost/mytest.php for your own c:/xampp/htdocs/mytest.php). You may also create any subfolder in htdocs and put your files there, for example c:/xampp/htdocs/myfolder/mytest.php can be executed via http://localhost/myfolder/mytest.php
