Object not found error.(but folders exist)

Postby vnaren » 05. January 2016 18:07

I have a peculiar problem.
I have a file test.html in a folder named test in the htdocs folder ( htdocs/test/test.html)
When i type in localhost/test/test.html it says Object not found.
Surprisingly enough,the home page (localhost) is being shown.
Not able to understand this problem.

Note:
I have 2 operating systems(ubuntu and windows)
I have eclipse ee installed with tomcat server on both windows and linux.

Of course, because you enter "test.php" but the filename is "test.html" (different extension).

Please provide full information:
- full path of the file
- known file extensions hidden or not? (maybe the file is named test.html.txt and not test.html?)
- full URL as shown in your browsers address bar
- full error messages
- full Apache access.log entries relating to the request

The fact that the dashboard is running is a good hint that you are doing something wrong and XAMPP is working correctly.
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!
