Problems with the Linux version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

This must be simple but I can't do it!

Postby dhj » 16. March 2007 17:14

I've just moved over from windows to Linux and decided to have a crack at web design. Installed Xampp with no problem and all seems to work ok. Developed a quick and dirty web site and put all files in a directory under htdocs called 'testweb' Now, when I load localhost/testweb I get a message telling me there is no such URL. I feel sure I did it this way some time ago in windows and it worked perfectly. Is anybody able to put me right please ?

Many thanks for your time.

XAMPP is working?
--> XAMPP demopage

If yes:
error_log?

Yes, Xammp page shows up ok. The file error_log in the directory /lampp/logs is completely empty.
I am typing in 'http://localhost/testweb' and receiving the message 'the requested URL /testweb was not found on this server'

Testweb is a sub-directory underneath htdocs and contains a number of simple html files, including a file called index.html.

The file error_log in the directory /lampp/logs is completely empty.

Then there is somthing wrong.

Can you see something in the "apachestart.log"?

If your installation is really correct (clean install and start as you can read in the installation instructions), you should ask Oswald why this happens.
(an empty Apache logfile is not normal)
