nOOb I can access xamp default page but not my own.

Postby ASnet0007 » 15. July 2009 14:51

Hi.
I am very new to xamp and linux (Ubuntu just installed)

I have installed xampp and ran the security checks.

I can access both the default xamp web page and my own site (in its own folder) from localhost, but I can only access the xamp page from an external computer across the web.

I hope it is easy to also access my site from the web.

Cheers


EDIT: am I correct that I should get to my site with http://www.myaddress.com/my_folder_name_found_in_htdocs

If you have this error message, opening the xampp page with "http://www.myaddress.com/xampp/" can't be possible, too.

Trust me to be the awkward one.

I'll create a new folder with a basic html page in and see what happens.

Any other ideas?

I'm having the same problem. I ended up reinstalling 3 times, no change.

The XAMPP folder, everything's fine and works well. My folder, it 'downloads' the file, opens it in a browser and looks a mess. when I View Source, all the PHP is there. It's like PHP isn't running in that folder.

My folder is in HTDOCS, with the same privileges as the other folders. I don't see why this would happen.

um, XAMPP 1.7.1 on Fedora 10 x86.

I am also having these same issues. I am trying to show anything via local network connection other than the xampp home page. I have tried placing a simple html file in /opt/lampp/htdocs/tester folder. then attempt browsing to http://localhost/tester/index.html and I receive Object not found! which is the error 404 page. Does someone know what to configure to make new sites display using xampp?

Recap: xampp is available locally, new folders containing *.html do not show locally or on the network.
