Where to save php files

Postby hackit » 01. January 2012 06:43

I'm new to both ubuntu and php and web development in general. Can anyone tell me which folder I should save my php files in so that I can view them in my browser. I currently have the xampp 1.7.7 for linux installed.

Hi hackit.

Your Webfiles (HTML, CSS, JS, PHP, Images, etc) should be saved inside your Apache DocumentRoot or subfolders of it.
The Apache DocumentRoot on Linux is /opt/lampp/htdocs/ by default.

Okay, this makes sense. I was confused for a little there. Dealing with folders can be such a pain.
