Cannot get Xampp or Ubuntu to redirect

Postby regulusrigel » 19. September 2008 20:06

I am running the current Ubuntu server (8.04) with Xampp. When I go to my webpage I always get the Xampp page.

Xampp is being read from: /opt/lampp/htdocs

I have loaded Wordpress at: /var/www/wordpress

I have gone into /opt/lampp/htdocs/index.html and changed the:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=/xampp/">
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=/var/www/wordpress/">
and also to:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=./var/www/wordpress/">
It always redirects to the default Xampp page.

I believe that Xampp places their httpd.conf file under /opt/lampp/etc/

I have gone into that document and replaced:
DocumentRoot "/opt/lampp/htdocs"
DocumentRoot "/var/www/wordpress"

It is still going to the Xampp default. So I also changed:
<Directory "/opt/lampp/htdocs">
<Directory "/var/www/wordpress">

Which also has made no change.

I have also checked with the Xampp for Linux forum and it said to delete the /opt/lampp/htdocs/index.html file, which I did. When i tried to refresh I still got the same Xampp page, so I cleared the cache (recommended on your site.) Now I am seeing:
Index of /

Any Ideas?

The easiest way:
- reinstall the complete XAMPP.
- put wordpress into the dir "/opt/lampp/htdocs"
- access it with "http://localhost/"

(or put it in "/opt/lampp/htdocs/wordpress"
and access it with "http://localhost/wordpress/")
