Testing a web site with xampp installed

Postby nemetode » 23. February 2012 23:52

I have xampp installed and want to test my web site on the server but, as xampp is installed, every time I do http://localhost all that comes up is xampp.. How do I get round this?

you have to enter the full url

http://localhost/yourfoldername/yourfile.xxx

If you only enter localhost, the index.php will be served, and that is a redirector to the XAMPP welcome page

Good Luck

Well that is a bit stupid - you would think it would pop-up an optional choice...

:shock:

I have no idea what to say...

OK -- I'm wrong -- "that's what happens when you type "www.google.com" - it gets the index page for the ServerRoot as specified in the hierarchy of pages defined in the webserver configuration".

'localhost' is a hostname in DNS...


Good Luck
