Pls help : 404 error on localhost

Postby Subhadipsaha » 19. November 2015 05:53

Hi,

I am runnin Xampp 5.6.14 on Windows 8. Apache and MySQL starts fine. However, when I try to run localhost it gives a 404 error.

I have tried many things like disabling firewall and stopping microsoft programs but cant get through. I have also checked the htdocs folder, it is in the right place within C/xampp.

Can you please help

Hi,

Which Browser are you using?
Which URL does your browser Show at the same time you her this 404 status error code?
Contents of your Apache access.log?

Best wishes,
Altrea

Same story whether I use IE or Firefox.

Localhost remains unresolved, no URL shows. I have also tried 127.0.0.1 but that does not work either

Did you successfully start Apache? Did you change ANYTHING in the configuration (Port for example)?

Eventually I could start Apache after changing port 80 and 443 to 8080 and 44343 respectively

When you change port 80 to 8080, you MUST specify the port in the URL: enter http://localhost:8080 instead of http://localhost (and same for https, enter https://localhost:44343 instead of only https://localhost).
